The Serie A is without doubt one of the best leagues in the world with a number of top players plying their trade in Italy. Here, we take a look at the five most valuable players in the Italian top-flight as per Transfermarkt.

1. Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan) - €90m

It came as a surprise to many that Manchester United sold Romelu Lukaku in 2019, and their loss has been Inter Milan's gain - with the Belgian becoming their talismanic figure in front of goal. The 27-year-old has scored 59 goals in 85 appearances for the Italian side and that they are in contention to win their first Serie A title in a decade is due to his histrionics in front of goal.

2. Matthijs de Ligt (Juventus) - €75m

Arguably the best young defender in the world, Matthijs de Ligt has quickly established himself as a rock at the back for Juventus due to his impressive performances. Only 21, the Dutchman will be expected to marshall their defence for a decade atleast.

3. Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan) - €70m

Another youngster who has attracted the interest from a number of top European clubs is Lautaro Martinez - who has played a key role in Inter's rise to the top of the league table. After a slow start to the season, the Argentinian has taken his goal tally to 14 in the league and 16 in all competitions so far.

4. Sergej Milinković-Savić (Lazio) - €70m

A maverick and one who makes Lazio tick is Sergej Milinković-Savic, who has been brilliant for them ever since he moved to Italy in 2015. The 26-year-old has been impressive this season too, scoring six goals and registering nine assists in Serie A so far.

It is just a matter of time before one will find him plying his trade for a top European club.

5. Gianluigi Donnarumma (AC Milan) - €60m

It goes to show how impressive Gianluigi Donnarumma has been for AC Milan that at the tender age of 22, he has already made 241 appearances for the club so far. The goalkeeper has registered nine clean sheets in the league so far and has been touted by many to achieve legendary status by the time he decides to hang up his boots.
