Top 5 most valuable Austin FC players

Global player database Transfermarkt just released its latest valuations of MLS players and Austin FC’s own Sebastián Driussi ranks among the most valuable in the league.

Driussi is currently worth an estimated $15 million on the world’s transfer market. For some context, Austin FC originally paid $7 million for his services in 2021.

Over his entire professional career, Driussi’s market value peaked at $16 million when he played for Zenit St. Petersburg at the age of 23.

Sebastian Driussi transfer rumors

The most obvious question: Are there any clubs willing to pay that kind of high-dollar transfer fee to get Seba Driussi?

Look no further than a tweet on November 8 from CBS Sports Golazo! Show host Nico Cantor, who says that at least three Premier League teams, including Leeds United, are interested in the prolific goal scorer, per his source.

Other reports indicate two Bundesliga clubs also have their eye on the Argentine forward.

With two years left on his contract (expires December 2024), it would probably take a monster fee to pry Driussi from the grasp of Austin FC Sporting Director Claudio Reyna.
