Super Eagles duo, Alex Iwobi and Wilfred Ndidi, have been listed among the top five most valuable African players in Europe.
The CIES Football Observatory algorithm released on Tuesday, listed both Eagles stars.
Ndidi has been in imperious form this season, playing a major role in the Foxes’ blistering start to the campaign.
The 22-year-old’s performances for the King Power outfit have seen him linked with a mega move to Arsenal.
For his fellow Super Eagles teammate and Everton attacker, Iwobi, who completed a £34m switch to Merseyside this season, his impressive performances in a stuttering Toffees side was halted after suffering a hamstring injury in the club’s goalless draw against the Gunners last year.
Iwobi, despite making handful of appearances for the Toffees from the bench under previous manager, Marco Silva, still has the most chances created, ahead of Gylfi Siggurdsson, Theo Walcott and Bernard.

And according to CIES, based on algorithms and analysis, the duo Iwobi and Ndidi are fourth and fifth on the continent with market value of €73m and €70.1m respectively.
Arsenal’s Ivory Coast winger Nicolas Pepe took the third spot with a market value of €93.5m, while Egyptian Mohamed Salah and Senegalese Sadio Mane are ranked first and second respectively.
The Egyptian is Africa’s most expensive player valued at €175.1m, while his Senegalese teammate at Liverpool Mane is valued at €155.6m.
