Preston continued their fine season with a 2-1 win over Bristol City last night that leaves them one point outside the top six.
Alex Neil has worked wonders at Deepdale since taking over in the summer and has created a hardworking side that is really hard to beat.
That is backed up by the fact that only leaders Wolves have lost fewer games than North End this season.
However, whilst they’re a resolute and resilient team, they also have real quality in the final third, with Tom Barkhuizen the standout performer.
With eight goals and six assists he is easily the most productive player for Preston and they represent very good figures for a wide man at this stage of the season.
Such form has seen Barkhuizen linked with a summer move from the Lancashire club and here at FLW it got us thinking about what sort of fee he would command. Our graphic below contrasts his value on www.transfermarkt.co.uk with our own thoughts.
As you can see, we feel the website seriously undervalues the 24-year old and doesn’t reflect the current market at all, particularly as his former teammate Jordan Hugill went for £10m in January.
The winger boasts blistering pace which is always going to be attractive for bigger clubs and he is improving all the time with his decision making and technique – as four goals in his last eight games demonstrates.
Preston may only have an outside chance of making the Premier League this season but it may be necessary to keep their talented winger at Deepdale next season.
Thoughts, Preston fans? Just how much is Barkhuizen worth? Let us know in the comments below.
