'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Future Stars

A nice quick, basic article describing what I, and many others consider to be the next generation of World Class footballers.

Handy during the current climate where everyone wants extortionate amounts of money for mediocre players while very few teams are willing to pay more than spare shirt button for genuine talent. Below is a list of money saving prospects that I believe Mr Levy could take a look at...

Kurt Zouma French born Centre Back with talents way beyond his 18 years. Zouma broke into the St Etienne first team at the beginning of last season and has went on to establish himself in the first team making just short of 30 appearances for the club since then. At 6' 2' with an athlete build, Zouma would draw comparisions with a young Rio Ferdinand...he's good on the ball, is lightning quick across short distances and strong in the air.

Gabriel Torje Romanian right winger who is also more than adept on the left. Torje is 23 and currently plays from Spanish club Granada on loan from Udinese. Torje, while maybe not having the outright pace of somone like Aaron Lennon, shows a far greater ability to find an end product when pushing forward. Good in front of goal and tenacious he would remind you of Luis Antonio Valencia.

James Rodriguez Probably the most well known on the list. Rodriguez is a columbian playmaker who tends to play off the striker ala Van Der Vaart but is also quick enough to perform admirably on the flanks. He's now in his 3rd season with Porto and is coming off the back of a great season in 2011/12 where he scored 14 goals in 38 matches. While Rodriguez would cost a fair sum to sign now, it would a quarter of what he'll be worth in a year or two's time.

Julian Draxler. Draxler is a 20 year old German winger who can opperate on both flanks. Although right footed, he tends to opperate almost as an inside forward for Shalke on the left hand side of their midfield. He's now in his 3rd season with Shalke, in that time reaching almost 60 Bundesliga games and with more than 20 European games under his belt. He's well experienced for someone so young.

Serge Gnabry Another young, attacking German. However at only 17, he is some way off the standard of some the names on this list. Gnabry tends to opperate just off the front man or on the right side of midfield. He's very raw as you'd imagine but his pace, technique and tenacity sets him apart from other players in his age group. The main problem we have with Gnabry though is, he's currently on the books at Arsenal.

James Ward-Prowse The only Englishman on the list is currently employeed by Southampton. Ward-Prowse has made 12 appearances for The Saints this season and has shown composure and talent far beyond his years. Admittedly at only 18, he's nowhere near ready to play at the level we do on a regular basis, butthis central/attacking midfielder looks set to become the latest in a long line of former Southampton youngsters that have gone on to set the Premier League alight.
