#1 Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) - €150 million
The English striker netted 30 goals in 35 Premier League appearances in the 2017-18 season and made sure a direct UEFA Champions League spot for Tottenham Hotspur after finishing third with 77 points.
Kane, who won the 2014-15 PFA Young Player of the Year and the 2017 England Player of the Year had a stellar 2018 FIFA World Cup with England in Russia where he led the Three Lions to a fourth-place finish.
Personally, the England Captain had a memorable World Cup as he finished the showpiece event with six goals in seven matches and was awarded the prestigious Golden Boot for his exploits in Russia. Overall, it was a fantastic World Cup Harry Kane-led English side that lost to Croatia (semi-finals) and Belgium (third-place playoff) before exiting the tournament.
Thanks to his Golden Boot-winning performance at Russia, Kane now finds himself priced at a staggering €150 million (market value).
