Players of Dutch Football League with the highest market value in 2019

As of December 2019, Dutch international Donny van de Beek had the highest market (transfer) value in the Dutch Eredivisie. The 22-year-old Ajax midfielder saw his market value amount to 55 million euros. Moroccan international Hakim Ziyech had a value of 50 million euros, whereas David Neres and André Onana saw its market value amount to 45 million euros. Ajax dominates the top three and is well represented with 14 players in the top 25, representing approximately 385 million euros of the total of 429.9 million euros market value of Ajax Amsterdam.

Frenkie de Jong one of the most expensive Dutch transfers

One of Europe’s most wanted young players, Frenkie de Jong, joined FC Barcelona in the summer on a five-year contract for transfer fee of roughly 75 million euros. It is the third most expensive transfers in Dutch football history (Matthijs de Ligt joined Juventus for roughly 85.5 million euros, Virgil van Dijk Liverpool for 85) but compared to the all-time football transfer record fees worldwide, he finds himself back just under Kevin De Bruyne at place 24.
