The attacking duo have both suffered a reduction in their transfer values due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but remain top of the pile of South Africa's exports, ahead of third-placed Luther Singh who boasts a €2.4 million (R47.8 million) valuation.

Rising talent Lyle Foster, who has spent this season on loan at Cercle Brugge from AS Monaco, is the youngest representative in the top 10, with the 19-year-old former Orlando Pirates starlet valued at an impressive €1.3 million (R25.9 million).
