Alli beats Mbappe to most valuable Under-21 tag

Tottenham star Dele Alli (pictured) has been revealed to be the most valuable Under-21 player in world football.

The Spurs star, 21, has eclipsed huge names including Kylian Mbappe, Gabriel Jesus and Ousmane Dembele to clinch the honour.

According to Soccerex, based on factors including the player’s age, position, current club, contract length, goals and international caps, no-one is more valuable than Alli.

The England ace has been tipped to cost £73.6million in the report – streets ahead of second-placed Mbappe on £55m.

Alli, who was named the PFA Young Player of the Year for the second season in a row this April, played twice as many minutes than Mbappe in 2016-17.

The French youngster may be the most sought-after star in world football after a sensational breakout season, but he’s still nowhere near Alli, according to the stats.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund ace Dembele completes the top three – valued at £54.3m.

Other Premier League players to crack the top ten including Manchester City duo Leroy Sane and Jesus.

Sane comes in fourth, valued at £45.2m, while Jesus is sixth, rated at £37.6m. -THE SUN
