Complete update Super League 1
Transfermarkt has updated the market values of 391 Greek Super League 1 players. Mady Camara from Olympiacos Piraeus remains at the very top with a market value of €15 million. The midfielder was scouted by Manchester United and Napoli last summer and is one of 15 Olympiacos players listed among the 20 most valuable players in the league.
Nonetheless, Piraeus, who are top of the league with 20 points after eight games, lose €4.75 million in squad value. Among the players who saw their market value drop is Konstantin Fortounis. The midfielder has torn his ACL for the second time in two years and will be out until the end of the year. As a result, his market value will drop from €8 million to now €6 million.
Rony Lopes (-€1m to €6m), Garry Rodrigues (-€1m to €4m), Tiquinho Soares (-€0.5m to €6m), Ousseynou Ba (-€0.5m to €4.5m), Yann M’Vila (-€0.5m to €4.5m), Kenny Lala (-€0.5m to €4m) and Sokratis Papastathopoulos (-€1m to €3m) also see their market value drop. The former Werder, BVB, and Arsenal defender has been a regular starter for Olympiacos, but Sokratis sees his market value drop due to his age to the lowest value since 2008.
Olympiacos with a big gap to PAOK
On the other hand, Olympiacos also has the biggest market value winners in the league. In 13 games across all competitions this season, left-winger Georgios Masouras has been involved in nine goals directly and has been one of the most dangerous players in his team. Masouras’ new market value is €7.5 million (+1.5m), the highest in his career. The only player who tops Masouras is Aguibou Camara. “The 20-year-old arrived this summer for €120,000 from Lille and has captured a spot in the first XI,” market value admin To-Piratiko said. “He has scored three goals and two assists in seven league games and has also shined in Guinea’s national team. Teams in England are now scouting the player.”
Kagawa down – Papadopoulos on the up
Away from record champions Olympiacos, other players that have previously played in Europe’s top leagues have also seen their market value updated. Konstantinos Mitroglou from Aris Thessaloniki (-€250,000 to €750,000) and former Man United and BVB playmaker Shinji Kagawa from PAOK (-0.3m to €1.2m) saw their market values drop. Kyriakos Papadopoulos from Atromitos Athen has seen a slight increase of €50,000 to now €900,000.
How Transfermarkt market values work
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. Examples of this are listed below. Transfermarkt does not use an algorithm (you can find the detailed market value definition here).
