Some of the Premier League's biggest names have seen a massive upsurge in their market values due to their impressive performances this year. Here are the 10 EPL stars with the biggest value increases in 2021!
Manchester City reportedly spent a club record €117.5 million (R2 billion) to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa in the most recent window. This fee is far from what his market value was on 1 January, when it was €50 million (R870 million), according to GiveMeSport, and it has doubled since.

Grealish is not the only City player who has experienced a big jump in value this year, though.
Phil Foden's performances earlier in 2021 helped Pep Guardiola's side win the 2020/21 EPL title, and ensured that his stock rose too.
His market value is now said to be €80 million (R1.3 billion), which is a €20 million (R348 million) jump from what it was at the beginning of the year.
Another Englishman who experienced a, perhaps unexpected, rise is Bukayo Saka, who was credited by pundits such as Ian Wright for helping turn Arsenal's 2020/21 season around after the Gunners found themselves languishing in the bottom half of the table in December 2020.
Saka started the year with a market value of €40 million (R783 million), and is now said to be worth €65 million (R1.1 billion), per Transfermarkt.
