Iheanacho’s Market Value Rises From €12m To €15m; Dessers’, Simon’s Appreciate Too

The market value of Super Eagles attacking ace, Kelechi Iheanacho has risen from €12million to €15m in the Premier League’s latest market value updates on Transfermarkt, Completesports.com reports

This has seen an increase of €3m from his previous market value and also saw a difference as high as 25 per cent following the Leicester City forward’s improved performances.

Iheanacho has rediscovered himself with the attacker now getting game time on a regular basis for the Foxes so far in the 2019/20 season after falling out of favour last term.

The 23-year-old who earned a recall to the Super Eagles after a long time out has three goals and four assists in twelve Premier League appearances this season while netting eight times in 18 games in all competitions.

Two other Super Eagles forwards, Moses Simon of Nantes and Belgian-born Cyriel Dessers of Heracles Almelo in the Netherlands also saw their transfer market values increase.

Simon who is originally owned by Levante but currently playing for Nantes in the French Ligue 1 is now worth a fee which is within the range of eight million euros.

Across all competitions so far this season, Simon has struck the back of the net on nine occasions while setting up eight other goals in 30 appearances for Nantes.

Meanwhile, Dessers who was valued at a meagre amount of only one million euros before he joined Heracles has seen his market value quadruple to four million euros.

Dessers who is the joint-leading scorer in the Dutch Eredivisie with 15 goals in 26 games is set to realize his dream of playing for Nigeria. He has 18 goals in all competitions.
