The top position this year is held by BVB professional Jude Bellingham. The Englishman, who is just 18 years old, joined BVB in the summer of 2020 and is described as one of the best midfielders in the world. The young talent is capable of setting the tempo of the game even at the highest European level. Bellingham is convincing all along the line, whether it is perfect ball control or his extremely strong self-confidence.

He is in no way inferior to experienced title winners. The number of goals and assists shot up this season. The offer that Manchester United made to the top talent was not convincing. Should this top talent one day leave the black and yellow, it can be assumed that both Chelsea and Liverpool will vie for his favor.

However, regardless of which club Bellingham will choose, it can be strongly assumed that he will leave his mark on European and world soccer for years to come.

Florian Wirtz

Many fans, as well as pundits, expected when Bayer Leverkusen sold Kai Havertz to Chelsea FC for €85 million that the club would now subsequently invest much of that money in a successor.

But the club looked around its own youth department and decided to bring Florian Wirtz up to the pros. Not only did the club save a lot of money, but with this choice, it looks like they chose someone who could be even better than their predecessor. Already in his first season, the 18-year-old attacking midfielder recorded 16 scorer points in all competitions.

He was also the youngest goalscorer in Bundesliga history in mid-2020. Currently, he is considered one of the most effective offensive players in Europe. In addition, he delivers an outstanding number of goals and assists for his age.

The outstanding talent is currently set back by a cruciate ligament tear. However, Bayern Munich as well as Manchester United, and Real Madrid are currently said to be interested in signing him. It is therefore quite conceivable that the club could eventually collect an even higher transfer fee for the top talent than for Kai Havertz.


Gavi - KreedOn

In October, Luis Enrique put together the Spanish team for the Nations League. Anyone who googled the name “Gavi”, immediately got a vaccination alliance displayed. Much further down in the results, the footballer Gavi then appeared. Very soon it become clear that Gavi has hardly been talked about outside of Catalonia.

The 17-year-old top talent was not only nominated, but he was in the playing eleven in both games. Just how incredibly meteoric Gavi’s rise has actually been is evident in his eighth and ninth appearances for the Furia Roja.

While there have been long talks behind the scenes about the talent at La Masia, absolutely no one would have expected Gavi to become such an important part of the professional squad so quickly. Among the youngster’s greatest strengths are his outstanding ball-handling, his game intelligence, and his self-confidence. On top of that, his finishing and passing are well above average as compared to other players in his age group.

Jamal Musiala

Jamal Musiala - KreedOn

In the 2019 summer, Jamal Musiala moves from Chelsea FC to Bayern Munich. At that point, he was actually a little-known English youth international. A near breakthrough at the professional level was probably considered quite unlikely, as he simply lacked physicality.

However, things turned out completely different than expected, as within the last two and a half seasons the 19-year-old became an important player for the German record champions. Jamal not only set a number of records, but he also secured a permanent place in the German national team.

When he debuted in the 2019/20 season, Musiala was the youngest Bayern player in the league’s history. Based on his confidence, technique, and intelligent decisions on the field, he could become the heir to Thomas Müller.

Harvey Elliott

When the Premier League season started, it was widely assumed that the role at Liverpool FC that Harvey Elliott would likely take on would be very important. It was expected that there would be more appearances from the bench. However, Jürgen Klopp definitely had other plans, as Elliott was instead in the starting eleven in three of the four games to start the season.

It is likely that Elliott would have become a regular player had he not picked up that ankle injury in September. The shooting star, however, has made his comeback and was able to score his first goal for the club back in February. Elliott is the youngest player in Premier League history.

Rayan Cherki

Rayan Cherki - KreedOn

Time and again, Rayan Cherki is described as the greatest talent in Olympique Lyon’s academy. That is extremely yelling because this is also where four-time Champions League winner Karim Benzema learned his trade. There is no doubt that the 18-year-old playmaker has outstanding talent on the ball. Real Madrid has been watching his development for years.

At present, Cherki’s general impression is still problematic. He still shows deficiencies in decision-making and defensive work. As a result, there are suggestions that he spends more time on the bench than his talent would allow.

However, he has shown very strong performances in his previous appearances. These then also ensured five scorer points in the Europa League. His four goals in his first three games for France’s U21s are also clear evidence of his talent.

Devyne Rensch

Ajax is still considered one of the biggest talent hotbeds in world soccer. The latest jewel from this talent hotbed is Devyne Rensch, who has made it into both the first team and the Dutch national team. The 19-year-old established himself as a right-back under Erik ten Hag. However, experts expect him to move to the center of defense in the future.
