Dele Alli has been named as the fourth most valuable Under-21 player in the world.
The Soccerex report, which uses Prime Time Sport’s Football Value Index to rank footballers born on or after July 1 1995, valued the Spurs star at £38.6million.
The chart was topped by Manchester United’s star striker Anthony Martial as Leroy Sane and Renato Sanches completed the top three.
The report takes into account the player’s age, position, current club, contract length, market value perception, international caps, minutes played, goals, injuries and technical quality from a variety of sources to arrive at a final valuation.
Alli burst onto the scene last season and enjoyed a stunning individual campaign that saw his performances earn him a leading role in England’s ultimately unsuccessful Euro 2016 tournament.
The 20-year-old starlet scored 10 goals and provided nine assists in just 33 Premier League games last season and is widely regarded as one of England’s most promising young players.
