The Scottish Premiership has undergone some significant changes in player market values based on transfer fees paid and notable performances in the early stages of the season. Motherwell has been particularly impressive, with players such as Blair Spittal, Liam Kelly, Mika Biereth, Bevis Mugabi, and Dan Casey seeing notable increases in their market values. St. Mirren has also performed well, leading to market value increases for Scott Tanser, Zach Hemming, Richard Taylor, and Greg Kiltie.
Meanwhile, Celtic and Rangers continue to dominate the division, with several of their players being the most valuable in the Scottish Premiership. Players such as Danilo, Greg Taylor, Alistair Johnston, James Tavernier, John Lundstram, Nicoals Raskin, Liel Abada, Callum McGregor, José Cifuentes, Todd Cantwell, Matt O’Riley, Reo Hatate, Cameron Carter-Vickers, and Kyogo Furuhashi have all seen changes in their market values.
It is worth noting that the market values of Celtic and Rangers’ new signings have largely been influenced by the transfer fees paid for them. Players like Maik Nawrocki, Luis Palma, Odin Thiago Holm, Gustaf Lagerbielke, Hyeok-kyu Kwon, and Sam Lammers have seen increases in their market values to better reflect the fees paid for their transfers.
However, not all players have seen increases in their market values. Some players, such as James McCarthy, Mikey Johnston, Tom Lawrence, Scott Wright, and José Cifuentes, have experienced a drop in value due to a decrease in their performance or reputation. Cifuentes, in particular, has struggled to make an impression at Rangers and has seen his market value drop from €12m to €8.5m.
Transfermarkt determines market values by considering various pricing models and the opinions of the Transfermarkt community. Market values are not equated with transfer fees but instead represent the expected value of a player in a free market. The values are influenced by individual transfer modalities and situational conditions. Transfermarkt does not use an algorithm to determine market values.
