(Lille, Fra & IvC)
The 23-year-
old is enjoying a
sensational second
season at Lille,
lying behind only
Kylian Mbappe
in the Ligue 1
scoring charts and
attracting interest
from a host of top
clubs, including
Arsenal and
Juventus.


(Rennes, Fra & Sen)
The speedy winger
has been on many
clubs’ radar since
impressing at the
2018 World Cup.
Shone in the
Europa League
this season for
Rennes, who have
him under contract
until 2021, but this
summer may be
the right time for
the 21-year-old
to move on.

(Sampdoria,
Ita & Den)
A ball-playing
centre-back who
managed just six
Serie A games
last season
before breaking
through this
term, prompting
speculation that
he will be the
latest prospect
to be sold on
by Samp.

(Lyon & Fra)
The midfielder
extended his
contract last year
and the club are
anticipating hefty
bids for a player
who impressed in
the Champions
League and is
one of the few
additions to
France’s post
World Cup squad.

(PSV, Hol & Mex)
The 23-year-old
is two years into
a six-year contract
in Eindhoven but
could be sold.
Began his career
in Mexico with

president Jesus

that Manchester
United have been
watching the
winger “since
he was 16”.

character forged by rejection.”
Asked recently about the best piece
of advice he has received in football,
Zaniolo’s reply was instructive.
“My dad says you can reach the top
quickly, but you can fall to the bottom
even more quickly,” said Italy’s shining
new hope.
“He’s always telling me not to get
big-headed, especially now. He also
tells me to remember how I felt when
Fiorentina got rid of me.”
