According to an analysis produced by the Sun, Fikayo Tomori is Chelsea’s most valuable English academy star, ahead of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham.
The paper says it teamed up with Carteret Analytics, a London-based investment company who work closely with football clubs around the world, on a detailed analysis of our Academy products which measured the monetary value of their contribution to increasing our probability of winning matches.
While the analysis was conducted across several leading Premier League clubs, the results at Chelsea proved quite surprising to the paper.
‘Hudson-Odoi, Mount and Abraham have arguably been the poster boys of Frank Lampard’s youthful English revolution, but it is Tomori who brings the most to the side according to the detailed objective analysis,’ the report stated.
‘The 22-year-old has made 15 Premier League appearances and nabbed a goal in his breakthrough season at centre-back. It sees his Intrinsic Value at £43.3million.
‘Abraham is behind on £38.2m despite an impressive haul of 13 goals, midfielder Mount on £33m and right-back Reece James on £23.7m.
‘Hudson-Odoi has a value of just £18.1m. There is no figure for their team-mate Ruben Loftus-Cheek due to his lack of playing time.’
