Arsenal Won Gold with an “unstoppable” Ace Worth Eight Times More Than Partey

Arsenal were recently named the eighth most valuable football team in the world by analytics site Sportico, a truly impressive achievement given the position the team were in just a few years ago.

Since finishing eighth in the Premier League in a row, the Gunners have established themselves as one of the best teams in Europe and their recent ranking is just further proof of that.

This success on and off the pitch has also seen the valuations of several of Mikel Arteta’s star signings skyrocket, including a player who is now worth eight times more than Thomas Partey.

Gabriel Magalhães’ Arsenal career

The star in question is defensive star Gabriel Magalhães, who joined the Gunners from Ligue 1 side LOSC Lille in September 2020 for just £27 million.

At the time, the Brazilian centre-back was a relatively unknown name among English football fans, but he had made such a big impression in France at Les Dogues that then-president Gerard Lopez described him as a “real fighter” and someone who had an “immense physical presence”.

His full debut for the North Londoners was a memorable one, a 3-0 away win at Fulham where he not only demonstrated his defensive prowess but also scored, something that has now become something of a habit for the 1.90 meter tall titan , at least by the standards of a central defender.

In the 26-year-old’s 167 appearances for the Gunners, he scored 15 goals and provided one assist. In January this year, he became the Premier League’s top-scoring defender since his arrival over three years ago.

However, it’s not just his goals that make him a special player, he’s also been an integral part of the league’s best defense this season. He starts 89% of league games and plays 90% of league minutes alongside his partner in crime William Saliba.

Described as “absolutely unstoppable.” from talent scout Jacek KuligAlthough the Brazilian may not quite attract the media attention of his French teammate, his no-nonsense and aggressive defensive style is just as important to Arteta’s incredible team and as a result his value has risen sharply since his arrival.

Transfer evaluation of Gabriel Magalhães in 2024

According to CIES Football Observatory, Arsenal’s main Gabriel – at least this season – is currently worth €80m, which is around £69m, or £42m more than Arteta signed him in 2020.

This new valuation means he is worth slightly less than Gabriel Martinelli, whose price is valued at €100m (£86m) by the CIES, but the same as Gabriel Jesus, who is also worth €80m (£69m). ) has.

However, one Arsenal star who values ​​the defensive powerhouse more than Partey is recently valued at just €10m by CIES, which equates to around £9m, or 7.6 times less than the defender.

This shocking price is likely due to the ongoing injury problems the Ghanaian has struggled with during his time in north London, which has seen him miss a whopping 72 games since the start of the 2020/21 season, no matter how good a player is if he never is fit enough to play.

Furthermore, these injury problems meant he only made 15 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions this season, so there really wasn’t a point in his Arsenal career where he was less important to the team’s overall success.

Ultimately, Arsenal hit the jackpot with Gabriel, and while his three years of impressive performances should be enough to convince people of that fact, his soaring value is just further proof of that.
