Juventus and Liverpool are the only teams with three recruits in the top 20 tables: Emre Can, Cristiano Ronaldo and João Cancelo for Juventus, as well as Xherdan Shaqiri, Alisson Becker and Fabinho Tavares for Liverpool. The excellent performances of these players and their employer teams explain in large part the magnitude of the gap observed.

Lucas Torreira was, at some point last year, dubbed ‘The best piece transfer window business’. And we can see why.
Matteo Guendouzi is also on the list and is the player to have appreciated most in value. This is the reason I believe Arsenal will miss Sven Mislintat; he was/is Wenger’s kind of man: Buy quality on the cheap and hopefully, sell on a high.
According to the CEIS Football Observatory based in Switzerland, Lucas Torreira’s value has increased by almost 250% from a reported purchase price of £30m to a market value of £74.3m.
Matteo Guendouzi, on the other hand, has had an astronomical leap by almost 500%. A reported purchase price of £9m now sees a market value of £43.2m.
The Uruguayan joined us on the 10th of July 2018 for about £27m and has not stopped impressing since. In that time, he’s featured 29 times, scored twice and had three assists. The little man with a lion’s heart.
