Some of the best defenders in the world may be found in the English Premier League. It’s no surprise that the Premier League is so fiercely contested; it features several of the sport’s greatest defenders right now. The six Premier League defenders with the highest current market value are listed below. This is according to Transfermarkt.com
6. Virgil van Dijk – ( £55M)
Dutch central defender One of the main reasons Liverpool is usually in the spotlight is because of Virgil van Dijk, the team’s imposing and dominant central defender. At 31, his years of experience have made him a formidable wall, but he has also proven to be an effective offensive player, especially with his headers. We can only pray that his sixth season with the Reds will be more successful than the five that have come before.
5. Reece James (£60M)
Reece James is regarded as the Premier League’s fifth-best defender. The Chelsea right defender had a great season in his first year with the club.
4. Joao Cancelo- (£65 million)
Joao Cancelo’s market value rose thanks to his stellar performance for Manchester City last season. The Portuguese superstar was one of the best players for his team all year long in 2021/22.
3. Andrew Robertson – £65 Million
Andrew Robertson’s worth is on par with that of Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo. Liverpool’s left defender scored three goals and dished out ten assists in the Premier League during the 2021/22 season.
2. Ruben Dias – £75 Million
To this point, Ruben Dias has established himself as the Premier League’s second-best defender. The 25-year-old is the focal point of Manchester City’s defence.
1. Trent Alexander Arnold- £80M
Trent Alexander-Arnold, a defender for Liverpool, is the best in the Premier League. Liverpool’s left-back is often regarded as the best defender in the world.
