Tottenham's Harry Kane named the most expensive Englishman in Europe

Eden Hazard worth £90m? Harry Kane worth over £60m? Wow!

The silly season is really in full swing with the January transfer window opening, giving all the big clubs in Europe a chance to spend their war chests to help ensure they pick up some silverware.

And with your clubs getting linked to some big name players across Europe's top leagues, you'll be wanting to know exactly who is worth what and if you club could sign them. Well, thanks to the CIES Football Observatory.

While the usual names like Lionel Messi, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo are at the top of the list, you might be surprised that eight Premier League players make it in the top 15 most expensive players.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard is named the most expensive Premier League player at a whopping £95.7 million which will please Roman Abramovich.

Possibly the most surprising fact is Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane has been named the fifth most expensive player in Europe at an astonishing £66.9m! The Spurs striker is apparently worth just over a million pounds more than Man City's Raheem Sterling, and after scoring 31 goals in 2015, we can see why!

The 22-year-old has carried on his impressive 2014-15 season, by netting 11 times in the Premier League and 13 in all competitions

Though two of Roy Hodgson's England players make the cut, Three Lions captain, Wayne Rooney fails to make the list and after scoring just six times in the Premier League in 2015. However, the way that the list is drawn up is through an algorithm which factors in a player's age and contract.

While Rooney's omission isn't that surprising, we're a little bit shocked that Leicester City and the Premier League's leading scorer, Jamie Vardy, also fails to make the list, but his team-mate Riyad Mahrez does.
