Japan’s national soccer team’s ace, Mitoma Kaoru (26, Brighton & Hove Albion FC), ranked 12th in the world’s left-side striker (LFW) valuation. In Japan, it made headlines, saying, “Mitoma showed an overwhelming presence in market valuation.” Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), who is also playing on the left wing of the English Premier League (EPL), also tied for 12th in this valuation.
Japanese soccer media Football Zone reported on the 11th, “Mitoma Kaoru has proudly ranked 12th in the world’s ransom ranking as the left wing,” and “Mitoma’s overwhelming presence is drawing attention.”
Germany’s transfer market media TransferMarkt released the estimated market value of EPL players on the 9th (local time). According to data released by TransferMarkt, Mitoma was valued at 32 million euros (about 45.4 billion won) in the previous evaluation (June), but this time it jumped to 50 million euros (about 71 billion won). Mitoma is ranked 12th in the world’s left flank position rankings. 토토사이트
Mitoma joined Kawasaki Frontale (Japan) in the Japanese J-League in 2020 and began his professional career. He played as a striker for the Japanese national team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. In the summer of 2021, he made a surprise move to Brighton & Hove Albion, but immediately left for Royal Winion Saint-Zilouaz (Belgium). Since then, he returned to his original team last summer and experienced the EPL stage for the first time, and played in 33 games in the league and scored seven goals and six assists.
The Football Zone said, “Mitoma left an impact beyond the record, creating many opportunities with dribbling breakthroughs on the left flank. In response, he helped the team win its first UEFA Europa League berth, he said. “This season, Mitoma is showing a better performance than last season, including three goals and three assists in eight league games,” he said. “This performance has further increased the market value and ranked 12th on the world’s left wing.” He added, “On social network services (SNS), he is receiving praise for ‘really awesome’, ‘ultra-world class’, and ‘spectacular player’.”
