At Interesting Football, we have compiled this list of the most valuable English players.


English players are some of the most valuable and most expensive football players globally.


The success of English football players in the transfer market could be attributed to many factors, such as the development from the youth level, which has been behind the success of many English football teams even though the “Big Names”  in the  Premier League are from the EU and non-EU member countries.

That being said, England remains a hotbed for young and talented players who have risen to the high ranks of most valuable players globally.

How the most expensive English players are fairing this season


  • Harry Kane

Kane’s success in the Premier League has been remarkable. To date, Kane remains among the few players consistently hitting double figures every season across all competition. Kane is also among the most prolific forwards in the world.


What seems to be scarce in his archive are significant trophies like the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League, etc. However, Harry Kane has won some of the most influential individual football awards, including the FIFA World Cup Golden Boot in 2018,  three Premier League Golden Boots and other numerous awards.


Although numerous rumours have surfaced in the media, Kane has focused his energy on taking Spurs to a higher level. This season, the appointment of Antonio Conte has also helped his confidence and consistency on and off the pitch.


Last season, Harry Kane was in fine form. Still, Tottenham Hotspur only settled for a Europa Conference League position and thus became the first English team to participate in the newly created UEFA Football competition.


In general, Harry Kane is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world. The fans and media often celebrate him for his prolific goalscoring record.


  • Phil Foden

Manchester City’s next-generation star player Phil Foden took English football by surprise by settling in the Pep Guardiola first-team team without much struggle.


Promoted from the Manchester City Academy, Phil Foden now plays an advanced role in the Manchester City attack and has been known for having an eye for goal.


Foden plays as an attacking midfielder, a forward and has been consistent with his contributions. This season, Foden’s brilliance has also helped Man City keep up with the intense title challenge with rivals Liverpool.


As per Statistics for the 2021/2022 football season, Phil Foden has been directly involved in many goals for Manchester City in the Premier League and Champions League.


The odds favour Foden, who has won eight honours, including becoming the youngest recipient of a Premier League winners’ medal. Lifting the EPL title with Manchester City in 2019, he became the club’s youngest-ever goalscorer in the UEFA Champions League.


Surprisingly, Phil Foden was named the Premier League Young Player of the Season and the PFA Young Player of the Year in 2021.


  • Jack Grealish

Grealish’s impact at Aston Villa and a long term replacement for Sergio Agüero were among City’s push to sign him ahead of the 2021/22 season. Completing the deal, Jack Grealish broke the British transfer record for £100m.


Grealish, who had a dream of being part of Pep Guardiola’s set-up at Manchester City, according to his words during his presentation, started fine against Leicester City in the FA Community Shield.


Grealish had been part of Aston Villa’s setup since as a kid and grew to become a threat in the forward line. However, a change became necessary when Manchester City identified its target as the club aimed to defend the Premier League title.


Fast forward, Jack Grealish is yet to be the same Aston Villa forward who forced City to make him the most expensive British footballer. Although the early struggles of the 26-year old continue to make the headlines, a significant change is expected of him.


  • Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent Alexander-Arnold is considered the best right-back in the English Premier League. The British footballer has been more potent for Liverpool FC, playing a more advanced role for the title contenders.


Jürgen Klopp, on the other hand, has also relied so much on the brilliance of Alexander-Arnold, who has contributed immensely to Liverpool’s title ambitions this season.


The 23-year old is known for his range of passing and providing assists; he is regarded as one of the best right-backs in the world.


  • Jadon Sancho

Jadon Sancho moved from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United following the Red Devils’ purchase of the player for 85 million euros.


Sancho was one of the fastest players in the German Bundesliga before the switch to the Premier League. With high expectations, Sancho initially struggled to settle at United.


However, the young Englishman is yet fully adapted to the Premier League, but a lot is expected of him from next season. Sancho’s abilities make him one of the most promising players in Europe.


  • Bukayo Saka

Saka rose from the youth ranks of Arsenal and has since settled in the first team. Saka’s contributions to the first team have been applauded by fans and supporters of the club globally.


Bukayo Saka is known for his attacking incisiveness and creativity. His consistency in the first team has helped him be ranked among the best young football players in the world.


  • Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling has continued to lead the way in Manchester City forward. As one of the most preferred options for Pep Guardiola, Raheem Sterling is one best English football players.


Sterling is known for his pace and creativity, even though his goal-scoring has dropped recently. He remains one of the deadliest and can pose a threat to any defense line.


Raheem Sterling’s market value has been stable amid concerns about his goal-scoring form for Manchester City this season.
