An independent research company has claimed that Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling has been valued at £59.7m, The Sun reports.

But that means that both he and Liverpool could find a move harder to come by as the Reds will be unlikely to accept a penny less than the stated fee.

The Football Observatory carried out a study on “transfer values and probabilities” of possible transfers, and they have figured that Sterling is the sixth most expensive player in the world.

Ranking behind Lionel Messi (£207m), Eden Hazard (£109m), Cristiano Ronaldo (£92m), Neymar (£72m) and Sergio Aguero (£63m), it’s a remarkable return for a player that has looked decidedly out of form over the past few months.

However, this also suggests that the club have significantly under-valued him in terms of the stunning £100,000-per-week contract they have just offered him.

The fee was carried out by a group within the International Centre for Sports Studies, meaning that the Fenway Sports Group will be given licence to play hardball with any potential suitors.
