The 11 players who dominate Asian football have been revealed.
On the 30th (Korean time먹튀검증), ‘Transfer Markt’, a soccer statistics media, shed light on the ransom best eleven belonging to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). The media evaluates the value of players by considering their current performance, age, and contract period. It is updated periodically, but this time it was updated.
South Korean players were Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in, and Kim Min-jae. Son Heung-min boasted an unrivaled amount of 60 million euros (approximately 84.6 billion won), even though his ransom decreased slightly. He was proudly number one in Asia. Lee Kang-in became 15 million euros (approximately 20.9 billion won). Compared to last November, it rose by 3 million euros (approximately 4.1 billion won).

Then, as he was not given the opportunity and was turned away, his ransom price also fell. Even after he moved to Mallorca, his value declined one after another as there was no significant performance. This season has been a turning point. As he improved the areas pointed out as his weaknesses, he became a better player and his ransom went up.

It was the result of his performance. Kim Min-jae, who moved to Naples from Fenerbahce, left an impression with an overwhelming performance. He has emerged as one of the best centre-backs in Italy’s Serie A and has been praised for his tremendous performance in the UEFA Champions League (UCL). This was the reason why his ransom value soared.
