The CIES Football Observatory has named Tottenham forwards Harry Kane and Heung-min Son among the top 100 most valuable players in the world.
Spurs’ fearsome attacking duo enjoyed solid respective campaigns once again last season as they helped Antonio Conte’s side qualify for the Champions League.
Son produced a stellar individual season by scoring 23 goals in the Premier League, which earned him a shared Golden Boot award alongside Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
His partner in Kane had a somewhat mixed campaign as he started slowly with a hangover from England’s Euro 2020 final defeat last summer and a failed move to Manchester City (Daily Mail), although he recovered to end on a very strong note.
With club football currently at a close, the CIES Football Observatory has conducted its final report of the season by estimating the top 100 most valuable players in the world.
Spurs talisman Kane was handed a valuation of £66.7 million (€78.1m), which was enough to rank him 31st on the global list.
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old’s strike partner Son featured much further down the list in 88th place, donning a price tag worth £45.2 million (€52.9m).
Elsewhere, January signing Dejan Kulusevski earned 38th spot with an impressive £64.1 million (€75m) valuation, while Cristian Romero placed in 51st and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg pipped Son by two positions in 86th.

These rankings and algorithms take into account a lot of factors and use age as a big barometer when valuing a player, which often reduces the number for slightly those that are slightly older.
We have seen that here with Kane and definitely with Son considering Spurs will likely value them at big price tags given their importance to the club.
