I wanna talk about the man that they call the 'African Hulk'.

Can't say that I've seen mass's of him. Bits and bobs.

Not great technically, but bloody cool in front of goal.

Another up and coming gamble that would be worth taking. Unless we're still happy trying and failing to sign our world class Berbatov replacement....

I want him to play for us.....

Luis Muriel. Udinese CF.
Very few youngsters in the world today excite me as much as this lad. He's basically a mini Ronaldo and I'm talking the real Ronaldo. He's quick, but it's the power that sets him apart. Opponents bounce off him when he has the ball. He's also very skillfull. Can certainly take a man on. There's alot of work to be done on him but he could go all the way to the top.

He's one I want aswell. Was following him last season at Lecce and he impressed me. Unfortunately all the kids will jump on here also because of how he is in FIFA13

Shaktar Donetsk AM starlet Henrikh Mkhitaryan, scored 20 goals in 26 games (all competitions) this season. Looks like a real talent.
Oh and his wikipage says he's fluent in five languages which are: Armenian, Russian, English, French and Portugese (hint to André) ;)

Given Holtby's impact I really think we should be looking to Germany more often. I could be wrong but I think Holtby was a good player rather than a star, which implies there are lots more like him. So come on the Bundesliga afficianados, Thowig and others, enlighten us with other potential Holtbys.

That would require our scouts to be proactive though and that seems to be an alien concept to the Club.

The club needs to remember the policy that brought Bale and Lennon to the club but also extend it out to the rest of Europe. Sandro was a coup but Inter have wised up now. Sandro's success has added 5m on any player we sign from S America now.

Giefer
Rudiger
Ginter
Kirchhoff (just gone to Bayern though)
Sorg
Rode
Leitner
Kiyotake
Volland
Son
Szalai

That's a team for you, should look out for every one. Not the most hyped talents in general but are more than 'solid' and will come relatively cheaply generally bar a couple

Have a feeling he would be too costly. If he moves club then most probably Anzhi will snap him up as well.

Andre Carrillo - Age: 21 - RW - Sporting Lisbon

Notes: When we started to get linked to Ricky van Wolfswinkle I decided to download a few Sporting Lisbon matches. While RvW was a pretty impressive guy who played stronger than his slight frame might suggest, I must admit that the player in attack that caught my eye more was Carrillo.

Real good turn of pace but also knew how to coast into challenges and then when the moment was right flip it into a different gear creating separation. Creativity on and off the ball with his dribbling and finding of space. Surprising intelligent and appeared to always be thinking to where his next move would be instead of blindly running forward into defenders. One thing I also appreciated is that he routinely found himself filling in the space and accounting for the overlapping fullback by creating his own area to work in or providing cover. He showed a pretty developed/mature game considering he's only 21 years old.


This highlight video doesn't really do him much justice, but you can see the type of talent he has.

Pitroipa Rennes FC. Look, this lad would be a fantastic pic up. Can play on either wing and is one of the best dribblers in the world today. He'll probably be named the afcon player of the tournament so is his impact. We have to get this done asap. Used to see him play when I'd watch M'villa a couple of seasons back and he's clearly gone up a level.
Kone CB. We have to get our scouts on his case. He's a class defender. He reads the play so well and is always calm. He's really looked class in the african nations cup.
Cardozo CB Free State Stars. Look, I know that us signing south africans hasn't really gone well but this lad is the dogs bollocks. The only reason he isn't playing for the South African national team is that he doesn't play for one of the big clubs in the land. He reminds me so much of Rio Ferdinand in the sense that he knows what's going to happen before it does. He's much better than Bongani Khumalo its unreal. We should at picking him up as it could the bargain of the century. The next Lucas Radebe IMO.

I can't believe any of these players are any good, Spursking hasn't mentioned them :)

Aymerick Laporte CB athletic bilbao.
French defender with a huge future in front of him. IMO he will be the next Hummels. Very similar game, in terms of he looks to dominate the opposition. Very good in the air, reads the game well. we should pick him up because very soon the big boys will come knocking.

Next big German star made his debut for Schalke today, assisting Michel Bastos' equaliser.

Max Meyer, remember the name.
