In 2016, GOAL created the NXGN lists . It is possible to find the best young talent in soccer with these lists. It’s just as easy to find the best online bookmakers.
Let’s take a look now at the top athletes in the ranking for the most promising young players.
Jude Bellingham, BVB professional is currently in the top position. BVB professional Jude Bellingham, an 18-year-old Englishman, is currently the top player in the league. The young talent is capable to set the pace of the game, even at the highest European levels. Bellingham impresses in every way, from his excellent ball control to his strong self-confidence.
He is no different to the experienced title winners. This season saw an increase in goals and assists. Manchester United’s offer to the best talent was not persuasive. The offer that Manchester United made to the top talent was not convincing. It can be expected that Liverpool and Chelsea will compete for his attention.
Bellingham’s choice of club is not important, but it is clear that he will be a major player in European and global soccer for many more years.
Many fans and pundits predicted that Chelsea FC would invest large sums of the money it received when Bayer Leverkusen sold Kai Havertz for EUR85 million to Chelsea FC.
However, the club looked at its youth department and decided that Florian Wirtz would be a good fit for the club. This decision saved the club a lot of cash and made it clear that they were looking for someone better than their predecessor. In his first season, the 18 year-old attacking midfielder had already scored 16 goals in all competitions.
He was also the youngest Bundesliga goal scorer of all time in mid-2020. He is considered one the best offensive players in Europe. Additionally, he is able to score a remarkable number of goals and assists for his young age.
He is currently sidelined by a rupture of the cruciate ligament. Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and Real Madrid have been reported to be interested. It is possible that the club will eventually get a much higher transfer fee for top talent than Kai Havertz.
Luis Enrique, a Spanish national, put together the Spanish team to compete in the Nations League. Anyone who Googled “Gavi”, instantly saw a vaccination alliance. Gavi, a footballer from Catalonia, appeared much further down the list of results. Gavi is a name that has not been spoken of outside of Catalonia.
The 17-year-old’s top talent was not only nominated but was also included in both the playing eleven and final. Gavi’s ninth and eighth appearances in the Furia Roja are a testament to how meteoric his rise has been.
Although there has been much discussion behind the scenes regarding the talents at La Masia and Gavi, it was impossible to imagine that Gavi would be so important in the professional squad. His exceptional ball-handling skills, his game intelligence, as well as his self-confidence are some of his greatest strengths. He is also a better finisher and passer than other players his age.
Jamal Musiala, a 2019 summer transfer from Chelsea FC to Bayern Munich. He was an obscure English youth international at that time. Because he lacked physicality, a breakthrough at the professional level was unlikely.
But things were not as they seemed. In the past two and a quarter seasons, Jamal became an important player for Germany’s record champions. Jamal set several records and was also awarded a permanent position in the German national soccer team.
Musiala was just 19 years old when he made his debut in 2019/20’s season. His confidence, technique, and smart decisions on the field could make him the next Thomas Muller.
The role that Harvey Elliott would play at Liverpool FC was assumed to be extremely important when the Premier League season began. It was expected that the bench would see more. Jurgen Klopp clearly had other plans. Elliott started in the first eleven in three of four games.
Elliott could have easily been a regular player if he hadn’t sustained the ankle injury in Septemeber. But, Elliott is back and was able, in February, to score his first goal. Elliott is the Premier League’s youngest ever player.
Rayan Cherki is often called the greatest talent in Olympique Lyon academy. It is also where KarimBenzema, four-time champion league winner, learned his trade. It is clear that the 18 year old playmaker is an exceptional ball player. Real Madrid has followed his progress for years.
Cherki’s impression of the world is currently still difficult. Cherki still has problems with decision-making, defensive work, and other areas. It is possible that he spends more of his time on the sidelines than his talents would permit.
However, he has displayed strong performances in his past appearances. These five goals also earned him five Europa League scorer points. It is evident that he is a talented player, as evidenced by his four goals in France’s first three U21 games.
Ajax continues to be a major talent hub in international soccer. Devynerensch is the latest gem from this talent hotbed. She has made it to both the Dutch national and first teams. Erik ten Hag coached the 19-year old right-back. Experts predict that he will move to the middle of defense in future.
