Under 21 player discussion

Recommended Posts

A place to talk about younger players getting gametime, call-ups, transfers, scoring goals etc.

The forum does not have so many active threads and when building teams most people like to buy younger players and for this it is good to know what is going on. There are decent articles on young players on the rise quite a lot but there is not really a place to discuss or post them.

Feel free to add in content and discuss at your leisure.

Recent under 21 player transfers:

Hannes Wolf RB Salzburg  > RB Leipzig €12 million

Lisandro Martinez Defence Y Justica > Ajax €7 million

Ludovit Reis Groningen > Barcelona B €3 million

Marc Cucarella Barcelona > Eibar  €2 million

Do you think these are Good/Bad Transfers? Worth the money or overpaid?

Feel free to discuss.

One exciting young player who looks to certainly be on the move this summer is Ryan Sessegnon. The England under 21 star gained valuable minutes (2,294) in the Premier league this season to add to his previous championship games which now take his total  games for Fulham over 100. With Fulham being relegated though it is nailed on that he will leave. Reportedly available for 20-30 million. Who do you think he will go to? There are some big clubs trailing the recently turned nineteen year old but at this stage it looks like Tottenham Hotspur  are maybe just in the lead for his signature although nothing is concrete as of yet. 

It will be interesting to see how this develops.

Will be really interesting see players like Wolf and L. Martinez in other leagues, both should have space in their new teams for show their skills.

I would add as interesting deal 

Kik Pierie Heerenven > Ajax €5 million

I read great stuff on him, but I have never seen him plays, but I'll do for Euro U21.

Isn't 20-30M too less for him? I red he's close to Tottenham for 40M, obviosly news from Italy aren't so accurate

2002 born Lucien Agoume who turned seventeen in February looks to be on the move from FC Sochaux. Has played in fifteen games this season in Ligue 2 and has been talent spotted by many top clubs. He will command a fee of around €4-€5 million.

Could he be on his way to Italy?

One of the best youngsters!

I know, it seems that Inter took him and Conte (Inter new coach, even if isn't official yet) will evaluate Agoume during the pre-season training

The agent of Chievo's young pair of brothers Emanuel (18) and Samuele Vignato (15) is negotiating with FC Barcelona; Chievo's requested fee for both combined is €8M

 

source: https://gianlucadimarzio.com/it/chievo-vignato-fratelli-barcellona-calciomercato

Good work, Di Marzio is usually a trustworthy source, several teams are interested in Emanuel (Inter, Juventus, Atalanta, etc) he seems a good player.

I haven't enough information on his brother, but I know that also Inter want them both.

The In-form youngsters in 2019 from the Guardian a couple months back.

10) Kai Havertz, 19, Bayer Leverkusen

Peter Bosz’s arrival as Bayer Leverkusen head coach just before Christmas has had a galvanising effect on a number of his players. Kai Havertz has certainly profited from the Dutchman’s possession-based approach. The teenager, now operating in a midfield three, has scored in three of his last four leagues games and boasts a pass accuracy of 87.4% in 2019. Rating: 7.42

9) Sofiane Alakouch, 20, Nîmes

Nîmes began the year with an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to third-tier Lyon-Duchère in the Coupe de France, but they have bounced back strongly. Sofiane Alakouch got the ball rolling for the club in their first league game of the year, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win over Nantes. The 20-year-old right-back has also been in great form defensively, with a whopping 41 tackles and interceptions combined in his five league appearances so far this year. Rating: 7.50

😎 Tyler Adams, 20, RB Leipzig

When RB Leipzig secured the signature of Tyler Adams from New York Red Bulls, few expected the 20-year-old to break into the starting line-up so soon. However, the USA international has started three of his four appearances in the Bundesliga so far, winning 16 and completing eight dribbles as he proves his ability in and out of possession in the middle of the park. Rating: 7.50

7) Marcus Rashford, 21, Manchester United

Marcus Rashford has been in scintillating form since Ole Gunnar Solskjær took over at Manchester United in December. The England striker has scored in four of his five league appearances in 2019, with no player taking more shots since the turn of the year. In fact, 47% of his shots this season have been in his last five games. Rating: 7.51

6) Nicolo Zaniolo, 19, Roma

Nicolo Zaniolo ended 2018 strongly, scoring his first senior goal in Serie A on Boxing Day, and he has stepped it up again in 2019. The 19-year-old has scored two more league goals for Roma and he also hit a match-winning brace in the Champions League against Porto. He has also set up two further goals in his five league starts in 2019. Rating: 7.74

5) Gianluigi Donnarumma, 19, Milan

After an outstanding campaign in 2016-17, Gianluigi Donnarumma regressed last season and many began wondering if the young keeper had been overhyped. He started this season well and his form in recent months has been excellent. Remarkably still just 19 years of age, the Italy international has been key to Milan’s assault on the top four in Serie A, conceding just twice in five league appearances since the turn of the year. Rating: 7.82

4) Achraf Hakimi, 20, Borussia Dortmund

When Real Madrid allowed defender Achraf Hakimi to leave the club on loan in the summer, Borussia Dortmund showed no hesitation in snapping up the Moroccan international. Real Madrid spent €35m on Álvaro Odriozola, paving the way for Hakimi to leave, but while Odriozola has struggled at the Bernabéu, Hakimi has been a revelation in the Bundesliga. Despite filling in on his unflavoured left side for the majority of the season, the 20-year-old has attacked with great purpose, having a direct hand in six league goals. In 2019 alone he has made 10 tackles, 12 interceptions and completed 13 dribbles in four league appearances. Rating: 7.89

 

3) Ibrahima Konaté, 19, RB Leipzig

Having arrived at Leipzig on a free transfer in 2017, Ibrahima Konaté did not take long to force his way into the first team. The centre-back has become an important part of a very strong defensive unit this season. The 19-year-old has started four of his side’s league matches since the turn of the year, scoring in the convincing win at Dusseldorf and weighing in with 10 tackles and 13 interceptions. His ability to bring the ball out from the back has also been increasingly evident, completing eight dribbles from the heart of the defence so far this year. Rating: 7.90

2) Jadon Sancho, 19, Borussia Dortmund

If there were any doubts as to whether Jadon Sancho would be able to maintain his sparkling early-season form after the Winterpause in Germany, the English teenager has quashed them quite emphatically. He’s added another goal and two assists to his league tally in 2019 and become one of the first names on the teamsheet, creating 12 chances and completing a remarkable 29 dribbles in five appearances – six more than any other player in the Bundesliga. Rating: 7.91

1) Kylian Mbappé, 20, Paris Saint-Germain

To include Kylian Mbappé in a list of top youngsters almost seems unfair to the competition nowadays. He has only just turned 20, but the PSG forward has been one of the very best players in the world for some time. He proved as much on the grandest stage in Russia last summer and has continued to do so all season in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League. He has scored in each of his last three games for PSG, taking his tally to eight for 2019. Rating: 7.93
