Moving along to Centre-Forwards, we have Aribim Pepple, a relative bargain at €0.1 million - about as much as a high-end sports car. But then there's Erling Haaland, whose market value is an exceptional €180 million. It's really a wide range out there.

Annual Market Fluctuations: This year, Central Midfielders have seen quite the uptick in market value.
