These updated statistics have proven one thing above all others: no Italian top-flight player has been rated talented enough to join the €100 million club. Despite costing the club €81.6 million in January, Juventus striker Duan Vlahovi is still the most valued player in the division, with a worth of only €85 million.
The Napoli left winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia stands out among the prominent winners from this update, more than doubling his market worth from €15 million to €35 million. The forward was one of the major standouts from the early rounds of the season, and Jatin Dietl, Area Manager for Italy at Transfermarkt, detailed why and how he has quickly supplanted a former fan favorite. Dietl observes that Lorenzo Insigne, who joined Toronto FC, “has essentially been forgotten.” “Kvaratskhelia is being hailed as one of the biggest transfer coups in recent memory throughout Italy. The current market value increase will merely be a little intermediate step if he keeps acting in this manner. Kvaratskhelia arrived this summer from Dinamo Batumi for €10 million and has blended in well.
Fabio Miretti, who recently turned 19 in August and is off to a terrific start with Juventus, is another player who has attracted a similar level of praise.
Dietl asserts that Miretti is Juventus’ biggest season-long surprise. The Transfermarkt Serie A analyst claims that “He is one of the few rays of optimism following the horrific start to the season.” Miretti has been one of the best players thus far and has constantly impressed, but it is unclear how much room he will have once Paul Pogba & Co. recover from injury. Even Massimiliano Allegri, who often favors experience, has so far chosen him above players like Denis Zakaria and Weston McKennie (who were transferred on loan to Chelsea). ” The player’s market value increased by three times, from €5 million to €15 million.
