Vinicius, Haaland, Gavi: Whose market value has increased the most in 2021?

It's been quite a year for Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior

The year of 2021 is nearly over and it’s one Real Madrid‘s Vinicius Junior will never, ever forget.

After a tough start to life in the Spanish capital, the young winger has blossomed into a world-class operator.

In 2021/22, Vinicius has been on fire for Real Madrid, netting 12 goals and contributing nine assists in 25 appearances across all competitions.

He’s one of the first names on Carlo Ancelotti’s team sheet these days and his sparkling form on the pitch of late has seen him rewarded with a shiny new market value of £90 million.

That’s up from £45 million at the start of the year, making him the player with the third-highest valuation increase since January 1st, 2021 following Transfermarkt‘s final update before 2022.

So who’s ahead of Vinicius? Well the answer to that question and many others can be discovered in our list below of the 30 players whose market value has grown the most throughout the whole of 2021.

Vlahovic with Fiorentina

What a year it’s been for Vlahovic! The Serbian striker has scored goals for fun in Serie A and is unsurprisingly on the radar of nearly every member of Europe’s elite.

Arsenal hero Smith Rowe is the Premier League player whose value has increased the most, the forward just pipping fellow England colleagues Grealish and Mount to that accolade.

Gavi’s meteoric rise to superstardom is further highlighted by the fact that he didn’t even have a value at the start of the year, but is now worth an eye-catching £36 million. Not bad for a 17-year-old…
