Every Premier League club’s most valuable star ahead of January transfer window

It's Christmas! Which means the Premier League is beginning to take shape.

Some clubs are flying high, while some are struggling to keep up with the frantic pace of the 2020/21 campaign.

And one little old team from north London, that goes by the name of Arsenal, look more lost than most.

There has been some stand out names so far this term – and the January window looks set to be a cracker as clubs looking to reshape their sides after a busy season to date.

But who is the most valuable player in each of the 20 top flight outfits? We went to Transfermarkt to find out!

Arsenal – Thomas Partey £50m

Arsenal's deadline day summer signing was expected to help the Gunners close the gap on the top four.

But injury has so far plagued his time in north London, restricting the midfielder to a handful of appearances for Mikel Arteta's side.

Aston Villa – Jack Grealish £50m

A supreme talent – Grealish has used this campaign to cement his place in Gareth Southgate's England side.

And his club form hasn't been too shabby either – with Villa sitting pretty in the Premier League.

Brighton – Lewis Dunk £27m

Brighton's rock at the heart of their defence.

Dunk's club form saw him linked with a shock move to Chelsea over the summer!

Burnley – James Tarkowski £28m

Another stellar defender who has helped transform Burnley into a solid outfit at the back.

Everton have been linked with a move for the centre-back but would likely have to pay more than £28m to land his signature!

Crystal Palace – Wilfried Zaha £50m

Where would Palace be without £50m man Zaha?

The Eagles may be grateful to still have the winger at Selhurst Park… but they could have cashed in for £80m when Arsenal signed Nicolas Pepe instead!

Chelsea – Kai Havertz £81m

Another summer transfer, Havertz's arrival prompted excitement from Chelsea fans.

However, a few months into his Stamford Bridge career, the attacker hasn't settled as of yet.

Everton – Richarlison £60m

A fantastic servant for the Toffees in recent years after they nabbed him from Watford.

Richarlison was the subject of a huge Barcelona bid last year – but Everton were in no mood to sell their key man.

Fulham – Ruben Loftus-Cheek £24m

Technically still a Chelsea player…

But Loftus-Cheek will be hoping he can use his skills to help Scott Parker's Fulham stay in the Premier League.

Leeds – Kalvin Phillips £27m

Another player who has worked their way into Gareth Southgate's plans this season.

Phillips is a favourite of Marcelo Bielsa's and has been an ever-present for the Whites this term.

Leicester – James Maddison £55m

Maddison was a top performer for Leicester last term but has enjoyed a relatively quiet 2020.

But Brendan Rodgers is a big fan of the attacker.

Liverpool – Mohamed Salah/Sadio Mane £120m

What more needs to be said about both of these men?

Both incredible in front of goal and unsellable for Liverpool.

Manchester City – Kevin De Bruyne £120m

Likewise, De Bruyne.

The heartbeat of City's team and arguably one of the top five players in the world

Manchester United – Bruno Fernandes £90m

Fernandes' arrival in January proved the catalyst for United making the Champions League last season.

And despite a mixed start this term, the Portuguese star has been incredible for the Red Devils.

Newcastle – Allan Saint-Maximin £32m

Signed in the same window as Newcastle's record signing Joelinton, it is Saint-Maximin who has impressed more than the Brazilian.

The Magpies fanbase are utterly obsessed with him too!

Sheffield United – Sander Berge – £18m

Chris Wilder's side beat Arsenal to the signing of Berge.

And it's not hard to see why the Gunners were keen.

Southampton – James Ward-Prowse £25m

The set-piece king!

Ward-Prowse is Saints through and through – and has been fantastic from dead-ball situations this season.

Tottenham – Harry Kane £120m

One season wonder, remember?

Kane continues to fire week in, week out. And has formed a telepathic partnership with Son Heung-Min.

West Brom – Matheus Pereira £12m

West Brom's danger man!

Pereira was the hottest prospect in the Championship last season.

West Ham – Declan Rice £55m

Another England regular!

Rice is the subject of a transfer battle between Chelsea and Manchester United.

Wolves – Ruben Neves £50m

Wolves have a host of Portuguese stars these days.

But none of them run the show like Neves.
