A flurry of new players are expected to come into various Leagues with the transfer window far from its conclusion.
News outlets are full of stories about astronomical transfer fees, unfounded rumors, and greedy agents. But under the radar are some wonderkids who could potentially negate the need for their clubs to purchase big players in the near future. Below we take a look at five promising academy players ready to make their way onto the big stage.
5 Tammy Abraham
The 19-year-old striker is one of the hottest U-21 properties in Europe right now. The London-born striker has been a key cog in Chelsea Youth set-up in the FA Cup and UEFA Youth League in the past two years, scoring a combined 67 goals across both seasons.
The lanky forward is deceptively quick, uses both his feet comfortably and smartly takes advantage of his attributes. The best thing however about the rising star is the maturity with which he times his runs. Rumors of a loan to Bristol City are rife, but should he stay; he could be London’s version of Marcus Rashford this season.
