This article forms part of our Valuation Evaluation feature series, which is where Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at the increase or decrease of a player’s Transfermarkt valuation and whether it is justified or not.
Leicester City have shown that they have a lot of quality in attack this season, with Ayoze Perez just one dangerous weapon currently at Brendan Rodgers’ disposal.
According to Transfermarkt, the 26-year-old has a market valuation of £27m at present, up from what is was in June 2019 by £9m. And it would be hard to argue that he is not worth that right now.
In the Foxes’ squad, only Jamie Vardy (19) has scored more goals in the Premier League than Perez (seven). The Spaniard has also managed to register four assists, one more than James Maddison and two less than Harvey Barnes, who currently leads in that department.
The above is impressive, especially given the fact that Perez ranks sixth and seventh in Leicester’s ranks when it comes to shots and key passes made per league game (via WhoScored).
Ultimately, it has been a strong campaign from Perez, who caught the attention of former Newcastle United forward Alan Shearer back in January.
How much is Ayoze Perez worth?
£30M or more
Less than £30m
Following Leicester’s 4-1 win over West Ham, the Premier League legend included Perez in his Team of the Week, praising the attacker for stepping up after Vardy’s withdrawal from the game due to injury.
Taking all of that into account, you would have to say that Perez is justifying the market valuation that Transfermarkt have given him.
Leicester fans, how much do you think Perez is worth in today’s market? Let us know in the comment section below!
