The Premier League is widely considered to be the best league in the world with a number of top stars plying their trade in England. The onset of the coronavirus pandemic has seen clubs opting not to spend large sums of money on players, though some of the stars still remain very valuable in terms of transfer fees.
Here, we take a look at five most valuable players in the Premier League.

1. Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) - €128m
Raheem Sterling has improved by leaps and bounds since Pep Guardiola arrived at Manchester City and has become not only one of the best players in the league but in the world. The England international is now scoring prolifically and will be key if City are to compete for trophies this season.
2. Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) - €120m
Another England international who continues to bang in the goals has been Harry Kane - with the striker one of the best in the world and one who guarantees goals. Kane has suffered from injuries in the recent past which has affected his numbers off late, though when on form there is no one more deadly than him in front of goal.
3. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) - €120m
A player who has been a revelation ever since moving to England in 2017, Mohamed Salah has been one of the main reasons why Liverpool have won the Premier League and Champions League title over the past two years. The Egyptian has scored 97 goals in 154 appearances for the Reds and has started the season in the best possible manner by netting hat-trick against Leeds United in the 2020/21 season opener.
4. Sadio Mane (Liverpool) - €120m
Like Salah, Sadio Mane has been a pillar in Liverpool's recent success with the Senagelese not only scoring goals but also bringing in creativity on the field. The 28-year-old tends to contribute in big games with the star netting more than 60 goals in the past three seasons.
5. Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) - €120m
The reigning PFA Player of the Year and arguably the best midfielder in the world, Kevin De Bruyne has been excellent for Manchester City and was at his imperious best last season. The Belgian would make any world XI and he will need to continue his good form if City are to reclaim the title from Liverpool.
