Jahanbakhsh, Azmoun among Asian Cup highest valued players

Tasnim – Iran international players Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Sardar Azmoun are among the highest valued players in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup underway in the UAE.

Some top players have mixed it up with the very best in Europe, and as a result, have found themselves leading the highest value pile in terms of monetary gain.

Jahanbakhsh made his name for Iran at the World Cup last year, and hasn’t looked back since. Having joined Brighton in the Premier League, his value has gone up immensely, and this tournament is proof of just that.

Azmoun has also been top class for Iran since his showing at the World Cup in Russia, and the Rubin Kazan star has made his name as a high value player too.

His monetary value is on the rise, and with more top performances for Iran, this number could go much higher very easily.

South Korean Son Heung-min, Aussie goalkeeper Matt Ryan and Japan forward Yoshinori Muto are the other highest valued players in the tournament.
