24-04-2020

Bringing in players from the Slovakian Fortuna Liga has been a lucrative business for teams in Belgium. 

The Fortuna Liga is known as the 'youngest' league in Europe (in terms of average age) according to Transfermarkt. 

Hence, it was the ideal ideal starting point in European football for players like Wesley, Kalu & Simon. 

Belgian clubs quickly grasped this opportunity and sold these players for big money a few years later.

Transfer gain:

  • Wesley Moraes: 24mio EUR (bought for 1mio EUR, sold fot 25mio EUR)
  • Leon Bailey: 12.1mio EUR (bought for 1.4mio EUR, sold for 13.5mio EUR)
  • Samuel Kalu: 7.5mio EUR (bought for 1mio EUR, sold for 8.5mio EUR)
  • Moses Simon: 4.35mio EUR (bought for 0.65mio EUR, sold for 5mio EUR)
