Revealed: The Premier League’s top ten value-for-money strikers
When the Premier League spends more than £1billion in a single transfer window, it’s easy to get confused about how much a footballer is actually worth.
So we at FootballFanCast have been trying to find some logic to the madness, partaking in a bit of number crunching to determine who is the best value-for-money striker in the Premier League by stacking their top flight scoring records up against their transfer fees.
Before we get started, it’s important to outline the ground rules. First and foremost, this list only includes out-and-out strikers (so Alexis Sanchez, Roberto Firmino and Heung-min Son all miss out) who have scored at least ten Premier League goals for their current club (therefore, no Christian Benteke).
Secondly, simply because it’s impossible to divide by zero, free transfers and academy products (Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Harry Kane and Saido Berahino most notably) have all been excluded from this list.
Finally, it’s worth reiterating once again that we’re only including Premier League goals and that all transfer fees have been taken from TransferMarkt.com.
