Youngsters in football are one of the most interesting topics of observation for fans of the sport. With the modern era of football, the clout around the players in their early twenties has become higher than ever. With that said, here are 5 relatively unknown players in Europe that will demand attention in the years to come.
At 20, Kossounou can play as a right-back as well as a centre-back which already adds to his versatility across the backline. The youngster plays for Belgian Pro League team Club Brugge and is being tipped to be one of the top defenders in the years to come.
Moving to the other side of the pitch, and in left-back, Adrien Truffert has been an amazing revelation for Rennes. The French club qualified for their first ever Champions League this season but got eliminated in the group stages. He has assisted three goals this season and has all the tools to succeed as a modern full-back.
The Monaco youngster is turning into one of the most versatile players in the league, being deployed in a variety of midfield positions by Niko Kovac and impressing in every one of them. Diop has managed to score 6 times in 26 appearances this season.
Tzolis hails from Greece, and is tipped to be the one to break the trend of below par attackers being produced from the country. The teenager can play anywhere across the front three and has already scored 11 times in 32 appearances this season.
As what seems like the only good thing about right now, Hoppe is an old school number 9, who presses the opposition, gets into good positions and has the ability to finish. The teenager has found the back of the net five times this season, and will only get better with time.
