Foden starred for the Citizens during the 2020-21 campaign where he helped Pep Guardiola's side win the Premier League and Carabao Cup.
In total, the 21-year-old chipped in with 16 goals and ten assists in 50 games in all competitions.
And with Foden expected to play a big role at Euro 2020, CIES Football Observatory have valued the midfielder at £163million.
They take into consideration the player's form, as well as how many years they have left on their contract.
Foden has three years left on his deal at the Etihad, while Paris Saint-German striker Kylian Mbappe was named in 12th as he is tied down in France until 2022.
The Frenchman is still valued at £101m, though there was no room for him in the top ten.
Following Foden in the updated list is Manchester United forward Greenwood, who is claimed to be worth £153m.
Greenwood, 21, who is contracted at Old Trafford until 2025, banged in 12 goals in 52 games during the previous term.
