Philippe Coutinho, N'Golo Kante and the players whose value soared in the Premier League

Last season Coutinho finally played with the consistency the Anfield faithful had been dreaming of. The Brazilian’s magic had been seen in flashes previously, but he’s firmly kicked on to become one of Europe’s finest playmakers by regularly putting in match-winning performances. Barcelona had three bids rejected for his signature in the summer, the final being a staggering £114million. They’re likely to return with an even better offer in January.
