Currently, “Les Mauves” are taking a brave approach in regards to their youth products. Teenagers like Dennis Praet, Massimo Bruno or Youri Tielemans are playing in the first team. The next ine line should be Kawaya, as he is a big talent. It’s worth noting that he has already made his debut in the first team – 25th of January 2013, where he played 30 minutes in a cup game again Eupen. He’s doing very well in the youth RSCA team as well – in UEFA Youth League, he scored 3 goals in 5 matches, and was also one of the best players in recently concluded Viareggio Cup, where he reached the final with Anderlecht.

Matias Nahuel http://footballtalentscout.net/2014/03/01/matias-nahuel/ Full name: Matias Nahuel Leiva Country: Spain/Argentina Date of birth: 22/10/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Rosario (Argentina) Height: 1,70m Club career: Villarreal CF Squad number: 44 Current national team: Spain U-19 Position: attacking midfielder, winger Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 300,000 € Contract until: 30.06.2014 Player’s agent: unknown Similar type of player: Eden Hazard & Ariel Ortega Mathias Nahuel is perhaps one of the most exciting youth players that appeared in La Liga recently.

A debut in the first team came on January 13th 2014, where he played 23 minutes in a home rout of Real Sociedad in Primera Division. Now this young talented player should be getting more chances from coach Marcelino. He has a dual-citizenship: Argentinian and Spanish, so the matter of his national team allegiance is rather open, although few days ago he was called up to play for Spain U-19 team.

Petar Mamic http://footballtalentscout.net/2014/02/26/petar-mamic/ Country: Croatia Date of birth: 06/03/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Zagreb (Croatia) Height: 1,82m Club career: Dinamo Zagreb Squad number: 15 Current national team: Croatia U-17 Position: left back Preferred foot: left Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: 15.06.2014 Player’s agent: unknown Similar type of player: Marcel Schmelzer Petar Mamic is yet another talent from “Hitrec-Kacian” – famous Dinamo Zagreb youth academy.

He is also a regular member of Croatia youth national teams. He already represented young “Hrvatska” in two big tournaments – UEFA Under-17 Championship 2013 in Slovakia and FIFA U-17 World Cup 2013 in United Arab Emirates. He played very well, but unfortunately Croats failed to impress as a team and despite having a very talented generation returned home without a medal.

It’s also worth noting that Jon has had two internships in Italy – at Fiorentina and Bologna. He has represented Slovenia at many youth levels, and currently is a key member of the U-19 squad.

This may change with the next generation of Honduran players leaded by Brayan Velasquez. He is considered to be one of the biggest talents in Honduras at the moment. He represented “Los Catrachos” at the FIFA U-17 World Cup, in which young “La Bicolor” made it to the quarter finals. Velasquez was a real star of the tournament – he played in every Honduras match, scored 2 goals, added one assist and wowed experts from all around the world with his fantastic dribbling and technical skills.

He made his first team debut on the 10th of August 2013 in a Coppa Italia match against Pro Patria. Just two weeks later he made his first league debut in Serie B – playing 25 minutes against Cittadella. Patrick can play practically everywhere in attack, but feels best on the wing or as a second striker. He is a regular U-19 international and has the trust of Alessandro Pane – coach of Italy U-19 team.
  7.

He made his debut in the first team as a 16-year old in a cup game vs Fenerbahce on 16 January 2013. Three days later he made his debut against Kayserispor in the Super Lig. To this date, he has 10 appearances in the official game of “Green Crocodiles” – and that number should rise substantially very soon. It is also worth noting that he has represented Turkey on many age levels – from U-15 all the way to U-19.

Vittorio Parigini http://footballtalentscout.net/2014/01/15/vittorio-parigini/ Country: Italy Date of birth: 25/03/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Moncalieri (Italy) Height: 1,80m Club career: Torino, Juve Stabia (loan) Squad number: 27 Current national team: Italy U-18 Position: attacking midfielder, winger, secondary striker Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 350,000 € Contract until: 30.06.2016 Similar type of player: Maxi Rodriguez Vittorio Parigini joined Torino youth academy when he was 10 years old and since his very early years has shown a great football talent.

Few months later, at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in United Arab Emirates he was already a first team regular, but young “Squadra Azzurra” boys failed and were eliminated by Mexico already in the round of 16.
  10. Luka Jovic http://footballtalentscout.net/2014/01/12/luka-jovic/ Country: Serbia Date of birth: 23/12/1997 (16 years old) Place of birth: Loznica (Serbia) Height: 1,76m Club career: Red Star Belgrade Squad number: — Current national team: Serbia U-17 Position: secondary striker, striker Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: Mario Kempes Red Star academy is a real talent factory. Players like Nemanja Vidic, Dejan Stankovic, Vladimir Jugovic, Dragan Dzajic or Zoran Filipovic have all graduated from its academy and all made big careers in European football. Currently, Zvezda is producing yet another generation of very talented footballers, including Milos Brajovic, Milos Stojanovic, Mihailo Ristic, Dusan Zivkovic, Luka Jovic. The latter is considered to be the biggest talent of them all; he joined Red Star as a young kid and started to score goals after goals to an extent that the press have started to compare him to Darko Pancev – the legendary Red Star striker. Luka has not featured yet in the SuperLiga, but should get his chance in first team football soon, just like Ivan Saponjic – his striking partner for Serbian U-17′s – has recently been given a chance at Partizan.
  11. Sebastian Driussi http://footballtalentscout.net/2014/01/09/sebastian-driussi/ Country: Argentina Date of birth: 09/02/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Buenos Aires (Argentina) Height: 1,80m Club career: Club Atletico River Plate Current national team: Argentina U-17 Position: winger, secondary striker, striker Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: Hernan Crespo River Plate youth academy is regarded as one of the best in the world. It is especially known for its strikers, such as Javier Saviola, Hernan Crespo, Ariel Ortega, Fernando Cavenaghi or Maxi Lopez. Sebastián Driussi is the next one tipped to shine on the world stage. At Sudamericano U-17 2013 he was a leader and the best goalscorer of victorious Argentina and his sensational overhead kick against Uruguay was definitely one of the best goals of 2013. Soon after, he was in fine form as River Plate won the Under-17 Club World Cup in Madrid, with victories over the likes of Atletico Madrid, Sampdoria and Barcelona. He was the tournament’s leading scorer with three goals. Later on, he participiated in FIFA U-17 World Cup and his 2 goals helped young “Albicelestes” to finish the tournament in 4th place. Thanks to all this he was given a chance to debut in River Plate senior team. That took place on 2nd December 2013 in a league fixture against Argentinos Juniors, in which he was in the starting line up and played 72 minutes.
  12. Re: The New Players Thread What Belgians? Where can I check new players that were added? Edit: I see now. I would definitely get Ivan Saponjic from Partizan. I can also recommend Marco Asensio, Sebastian Driussi, Pieter Gierkens and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
  13. Luka Zahovic http://footballtalentscout.net/2014/01/08/luka-zahovic/ Country: Slovenia/Portugal Date of birth: 15/11/1995 (18 years old) Place of birth: Guimaraes (Portugal) Height: 1,77m Club career: NK Maribor, NK Verzej (loan), NK Maribor Current national team: Slovenia U-19 Position: secondary striker, striker Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 100,000 € Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: Alexandr Kerzhakov Luka is a son of legendary former Benfica and Valencia player – Zlatko Zahovic, who is the most capped player and the all-time top goalscorer for the Slovenia national football team.

After his return to “The Violets”, so far he played in 3 league games and debuted in Europa League – in the away match against Rubin Kazan he made an assist and played very well overall. He has represented Slovenia on many youth levels – in 2012 he participated in the UEFA Under-17 Championship, where he managed to scored one goal in 3 matches, but unfortunately Slovenians were eliminated already in the group phase. Currently he is a U-19 national team player.
  14. Re: Jairo Riedewald Yup, he was very lucky, but I can assure you that he's a very good defender with a big potential. Not by accident he was called up by de Boer to play in the first team at the age of 17
  15. Re: Federico Palacios-Martinez Yeah, It's my site and all reports about players are made by me
  16. Federico Palacios-Martinez http://footballtalentscout.net/2014/01/07/federico-palacios-martinez/ Country: Germany/Spain Date of birth: 09/04/1995 (18 years old) Place of birth: Hannover (Germany) Height: 1,70m Club career: VfL Wolfsburg Current national team: Germany U-19 Position: winger, secondary striker, striker Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: Jermain Defoe Federico is one of the most talented generation of VfL Wolfsburg players which is being dubbed “Wolfsburgs goldene generation” by the German press. Apart from Palacios, other big talents that are in this generation include Julian Brandt, Tolcay Cigerci, Paul Seguin or Maximilian Arnold, who has done very well in Bundesliga thus far and is already a star in the first team. Federico is scoring goals for fun in the A-Junioren Bundesliga, which is the highest level of German U-19 football. Goals scored per game ratio by this player is unbelievable – 29 goals in 14 games plus 8 assists. He has scored 3 hattricks, once he scored 4 goals in a game and once even 6. He hasn’t made his debut in the first team yet, although he has played in pre-season games. It would not take him too long to make the “Die Wolfe” squad, but few days ago he made a shocking decision – after the current season he will move to a 3rd division side – RB Leipzig. He is from Spain, but he chose to represent Germany, having already played for its U-15, U-16 and U-17 levels, while currently representing Germany at U-19 level.
  17. Re: Josip Basic Well, http://footballtalentscout.net/ is my website I watch every single youth tournament (World Cup, European Championship U-17, U-20, Viareggio Cup, Aegon Future Cup, Toulon Tournament etc.) + a lot of league games from Serbia, Netherlands, Croatia etc. Scouting is my passion. I love it
  18. Josip Basic http://footballtalentscout.net/2014/01/05/josip-basic/ Country: Croatia Date of birth: 02/03/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Split (Croatia) Height: 1,78m Club career: Hajduk Split Current national team: Croatia U-17 Position: right back, right midfielder, winger Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 150,000 € Contract until: 30.06.2016 Similar type of player: Jakub Blaszczykowski “HNK Hajduk Split Academy” is a football academy which has always introduced great players to the world, like Darijo Srna, Milan Rapaic, Alen Boksic or Aljosa Asanovic. Josip Basic is another player from the academy who has a chance for the big time. He is being compared to Darijo Srna in Croatia, although he himself picked the right back position over the right wing. He joined “The pride of Dalmatia” youth academy in 2010, aged 13. Having achieved a lot with the U-17 and U-19 teams, he was called up to the first team for the Croatian “Eternal derby” against Dinamo Zagreb on 29 September 2012, starting on the bench, but making his debut by entering for Marko Bencun in the 57th minute. Soon after, he scored his first senior goal in November 2013, against Slaven Belupo. He is also a captain and one of the best players in the Croatia U-17 national team, next to players such as Elvir Maloku, Alen Halilovic, Fran Brodic or Robert Muric, but unfortunately due to an injury he did not make the squad for the FIFA U-17 World Cup, while his team without its talisman got knocked out in the group stage.
  19. Jairo Riedewald http://footballtalentscout.net/2014/01/04/jairo-riedewald/ Country: Netherlands Date of birth: 09/09/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Amsterdam (Netherlands) Height: 1,86m Club career: Ajax Amsterdam Current national team: Netherlands U-19 Position: center back, left back, defensive midfielder, left midfielder, centre midfielder Preferred foot: left Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: 30.06.2016 Similar type of player: Hans-Peter Briegel Ajax Amsterdam is perhaps the most famous football talent factory in the world. Jairo Riedewald is another one coming out of that factory who should make his name in the big time. He is a very versatile player who can play in any position in attack and midfield. He is most often seen at center back or left back, but he has also played as a defensive midfielder, as well as wing position and attacking midfield position. This season he has made 3 appearances in the Jong Ajax team which plays in the Jupiler League, which is the 2nd division below Eredivisie. He also played 4 times in the UEFA Youth League. His skills impressed Frank De Boer who called him up to the first team for a cup match against Ijsselmeervogel. 3 days later something which can be described as groundbreaking in his career has occured. For his league debut, he came off the bench to score a brace in a 2-1 win over Roda JC Kerkrade. The teenager was introduced by Frank De Boer with 10 minutes to go, replacing Christian Poulsen, and turned out to be a definitive game changer – he scored in the 88th and 92nd minutes in a remarkable comeback. After this game, Jairo is certain to get more chances and he could even become a regular in the first team. It is also worthy of note that despite being just 17, he is a first XI player in the Dutch U-19 national team.
  20. Samir Radovac http://footballtalentscout.net/2013/12/29/samir-radovac/ Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina Date of birth: 25/01/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) Height: 1,74m Club career: FK Sarajevo Current national team: Bosnia and Herzegovina U-19 Position: defensive midfielder, centre midfielder Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 200,000 € Contract until: 30.06.2015 Similar type of player: Steven Defour Samir is one of the most talented young footballers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Recently, he was even voted the best footballer of Bosnian Premijer Liga in the U-17 category. He made his professional debut during 2012/2013 season, on 9th March 2013 in a league fixture against Rudar Prijedor and thanks to that he has become one of the youngest players ever to put on the maroon and white jersey. In January 2013 he went to FC Zenit St. Petersburg to play several trial matches. Afterwards he was very close to moving to Zenit, Russians wanted to keep the talented youngster, but in the end deal didn’t go through and Radovac still wears FK Sarajevo colours. He has also represented his country at U-17 and U-18 levels, now he is a member of Bosnia and Herzegovina U-19 national team.

He has been pushed aroundin different positions – from a center-back to a right midfielder, but he seems to have found his place at centre-forward and that’s where he is making his name. He made his debut in Liga 1 at the age of 16 on the 24th of February 2013 against Petrolul Ploietsi, where he played the final 5 minutes. He had to wait until 2013-14 season for his first goal – and what a beautiful goal it was. He scored a great header which gave Otelul a draw against the giants Steaua Bucaresti. He has already had a trial with Milan, where he impressed the coaches at their youth department. He’s been also scouted by Malaga and Sampdoria, although it seems that it would be best for his development to earn a first team spot at Otelul and continue his development in his home country playing regularly. He has represented Romania and many youth levels, and currently he is a U-19 national team player.
  22. Mirza Halvadzic http://footballtalentscout.net/2013/12/21/mirza-halvadzic/ Country: Sweden/Bosnia and Herzegovina Date of birth: 15/02/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Lund (Sweden) Height: 1,77m Club career: Malmo FF Current national team: Sweden U-17 Position: winger Preferred foot: left Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: Arjen Robben Mirza was regarded as a great talent of Swedish football since many years.

Although he didn’t made ​​his debut in the senior team yet, but he’s one of the biggest stars of “The Sky Blues” youth team playing in Allsvenskan South U-19. His parents are from Bosnia and Herzegovina, but he decided to represent Sweden and in September 2013 he entered his first international tournament at the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates where Sweden unexpectedly won a bronze medal.

In 2013 he was a captain of Anderlecht youth team that won prestigious Viareggio Cup – one of the most important youth football tournaments in the world. Just before the current season “Les Mauves” decided to loan him out to Kortrijk to gain experience and play regular first team football at the top level. It turned out that it was a very good decision because Michael quickly became an authentic important figure at Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s side. He made his full debut at 14 September 2013 against Gent in a 3-0 home win and until now played 13 matches in Jupiler League. He is also a member and regular starter in Belgium U-21 national team.

He shone at FIFA U-17 World Cup in United Arab Emirates, where as a captain, he guided “Sborna” team to the title. He proved his worth in the tournament by conceding one goal in 400 minutes of game play and also saved three penalties in the final shoot-out against Italy.

First above all, he has to make his senior debut and win a place in Vasco da Gama first team.
