Naija stars Osimhen and Ndidi are among the most valued players in the world.
In a KPMG Football Benchmark report on the most valuable players (market value), Osimhen ranks 98th while Ndidi is 122.
Osimhen, the most expensive African player, is valued at €50m, less than the €71m Italian giants Napoli paid for him.
KPMG’s ranking shows how the 21-year-old has not done enough to justify his huge transfer fee.
Osimhen ranks higher than Paul Pogba and Kalidou Koulibaly and is the most valuable Nigerian player according to the KPMG ranking, followed by Ndidi.
The Leicester City midfielder is valued at €44.2 million. Ndidi has been one of the most consistent midfielders in the Premier League.

The French World Cup winner is valued at €185m, followed by Tottenham captain Harry Kane and Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling, who are valued at €125m each.
