Player Valuation Update: Haaland on top, slight growth in overall values and 114 additional clubs in our database

We are proud to announce, that with the addition of more than 3,000 players from over 100 clubs to our database, including all footballers in the top tiers of Russia, Austria and Saudi Arabia, it now covers 8,300+ players from 358 clubs in the best leagues of the UEFA, CONMEBOL and AFC regions.
