When we scout young players who are attracting big clubs, we do it because they will one day play for giants and rise to be the best players in the game. Let’s take a look at different examples.
Leon Bailey is attracting Bayern and just about all the big English clubs. Why will he rise? Because of this interest? No. Because he plays in a top division and is a top performer.
arthur for gremio rose from 75 to 87 this past December. Is it because he was connected to Barcelona? No. He had just won the Libertadores and was MOTM in the final. Not to mention he was called up to for Brasil in 2017.
Sessegnon, while voted POTY, is an uncapped player in a second division which is being given way too much weight in this forum. Championship teams cannot qualify for Europe. Rarely do Championship players play for their national team. Ruben Neves does, and he has probably maxed out at 86.
I don’t think soccerwiki takes “interest “ into account at all nor should they.
