An independent analyst has valued Liverpool's want-away forward Raheem Sterling at £59.7m.

The England international and his agent have made clear that the 20-year-old sees his future away from Anfield.

Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Real Madrid and even an unlikely move to Manchester United have been mooted as possible destinations for the Jamaican born player.

Liverpool will have already been well aware of Sterling's high value, but the analysis carried out by the Football Observatory, a research group within the International Centre for Sports Studies, will solidify the club's strong negotiating position.

The figure put on Sterling's value, put between £54.4m-£59.7m,  is based on a variety of factors, including age, contract length, position, international status, performance, experience and the club he plays for.

In the Premier League only Eden Hazard and Sergio Aguero are valued higher.
