9. Mesut Ozil | Value: £42m
Mesut Ozil hasn’t had a great debut season at Arsenal, but the playmaker’s value wouldn’t have decreased over the last nine months.
The Germany international has not become an average player in such a short space of time - and is tipped to produce his best form with the Gunners from the start of next season. It can take players, even the best ones, time to settle in and adapt to a new league.
If Arsenal opted to sell Ozil this summer, they could fetch a full refund on the £42.5m they paid Real Madrid last summer. But that’s the last thing Arsene Wenger is considering right now.
At 25, Ozil still has the best years of his career ahead of him.
