Players of Dutch Football League with the highest market value in 2020

As of April 2020, Cameroon international André Onana had the highest market (transfer) value in the Dutch Eredivisie. The 24-year-old Ajax goalkeeper saw his market value amount to 36 million euros. Brazilian international David Neres had a value of 36 million euros as well, whereas Nicolás Tagliafico saw its market value amount to 28 million euros. Note that the market values decreased significantly due to COVID-19 pandemic and the stop of competitions. Nevertheless, Ajax dominates the top three and is well represented with 12 players in the top 25, representing approximately 242 million euros of the total of 283.25 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 of 2019 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.
