Taiwo Awoniyi is the only German Bundesliga player who has been named in the ten most valuable individuals in Nigeria.
The Union Berlin star enjoyed a superb 2021/22 season and made himself almost undroppable under Urs Fischer.
Awoniyi bagged 15 league goals at the 2021/22 German Bundesliga season and that has only enhanced his reputation as one of the league’s best strikers.
The former Liverpool, FSV Frankfurt, NEC, Mouscron, KAA Gent and Mainz 05 striker netted 20 goals in all competitions.
His quality is such that he is expected to play a lead role for Union Berlin in the upcoming League season.
Now though the striker has been tipped for huge things and, according to Transfermarkt.com, is worth €20m.
His value largely determined by his overall quality and age profile.
The Transfermarkt market values are calculated, taking into account various pricing models. A major factor is the Transfermarkt community, whose members discuss and evaluate player market values in detail. In general, the Transfermarkt market values are not to be equated with transfer fees.
The goal is not to predict a price but an expected value of a player in a free market. Both individual transfer modalities and situational conditions are relevant in determining market values.
