9 young players who got their breakthrough last season

Rafael Leão: The Portuguese forward who plays for Serie A giants, won the Serie A trophy with his team for the first time in about 10 years. He’s a very versatile player, with the ability to play on both flanks, and he’s also a prolific dribbler. Some even call him the Portuguese Mbappe.

23 year old Leão played a total of 42 matches, scoring 14 goals and assisting 12. His market value rose from 27.5m to 55m.

Gonzalez Pedri: Barcelona’s golden boy and central midfielder who’s just 19 years of age has found a spot on Europe’s big stage. The football media regard him as one of the most promising footballers in the world. He plays a free role, which allows him to roam on the pitch. He’s well known for his ability to get out of tight spaces.

He might as well be consider a versatile player, as he can play on any flanks and also in different midfield positions. He won the golden boy award of 2021. Due to injuries, he played a total of 21 matches for FC Barcelona last season, scoring 4 goals and assisting 1.

His market value increased from $77m to $88m.

Emile Smith Rowe: Rowe is an attacking midfielder, he sometimes play as a winger for Arsenal or his National team England. He has established himself as an important player for the club.

He’s very clever in possession and full of energy. His work rate backs this up. He played a total of 37 games for the Gunners last season, scoring 11 and assisting 2 others.

His market value has increased from $19.8m to $44m in the past season.

Jude Bellingham: The Dortmund player is one of the most coveted players in Europe’s biggest clubs. He remains the club’s youngest player to join the Dortmund senior team at 16 years old. He was the Kopa runner up in 2021.

After his performance against City in the Champions League, Pep Guardiola thinks he lied about his age or he’s just too mature for that age. He plays really well as a central midfielder.

In the previous season, he played 44 matches with Dortmund, scoring 6 and assisting an astonishing total of 14. His market value rose from 60.5m to 82.5m.

Phil Foden: One of Pep Guardiola’s finest weapons, the English player is the youngest holder of the Premier League medal. He is also the youngest player to both start a match and score in the knockout stages of the UCL.

He’s blessed with the ability to drift past opponents; no wonder he’s become a regular player for Man City at a young age. The 22-year-old played a total of 45 matches for club, scoring 14 and assisting 11.

His market value increased from $88m to $99m in the just concluded season.

Other players that aren’t mentioned includes Dusan Vlahovic (Juventus), Sebastin Haller (Ajax)
