Here at Transfertavern we’re a cutting edge bunch and we like to keep an eye of the future. We’ll take a look at some of the Prems up and coming young stars. We all know the likes of Rodwell and Sturridge already, so instead today we’ll try to point you towards some of the lesser known players that look set to become household names in the future.
I know, we’ve being saying this about Rose since Spurs first signed him in 2007 for around £1 million. Well he’s taken his time but he now finally seems to be fulfilling his potential. He was one of Spurs few bright points in their dreary match against Stevenage last week, but this was not the first time he has drawn attention. He first made a big name for himself scoring this goal against Arsenal in 2010. Since then injuries and mediocre loans do not make for a remarkable story, but Harry has recently praised Rose, and thinks he may be of use at left back with BAE injured.
Spurs recent exodus of fringe players has given Rose more chances with the first team, and he has made 9 apps for the first team this season. As the Spurs squad gets stretched more and more as they hope to compete on all fronts, Rose may find himself called upon more and more often. Hopefully Rose, still only 21, can make the most of these chances.
Has a lot of hype surrounding him right now. With Chelsea in a rebuilding phase (to put it politely) many fans as well, as the manager, have been looking to the future. When they picture this future McEachran may be anchoring the midfield.
There had been some rumours it would be this season that Josh made his break through to the first team. It wasn’t to be, but now is as good a time as any for a youngster to push his way into the team. He has a few first team appearances under his belt, but his loan to Swansea is a chance for him to gain some regular experience and show us, and AVB, what he can do.
A left-footed, creative player, McEachran has the potential to pull the strings of a game, and has drawn comparisons from everyone from Zidane, to Iniesta. Everyone that has managed him is quick to sing his praises. Hopefully soon it will be all this potential will come to fruition, Chelsea need some good news.
There are many youngsters at Arsenal waiting to break through, and with rumours of exits this summer for RVP and Walcott it seems to be Ryo Miyaichi who may get the chance.
Miyaichi has already broken into the first teams of Feyenoord and Bolton. At Feyenoord he was a popular player, and an undoubtedly a success at the club. Now he is Bolton, and Manager Coyle is full of praise for the player.
“He has more than just one strength. He has many attributes. He has pace, he has two great feet. He has football intelligence for such a young man and he’s driven to be the best he can be,” He said after Miyaichi’s goal against Millwall.
Arsenal’s faith in youth has come under fire from some fans recently, but if they stick with Miyaichi may redeem Arsene’s transfer policy.
The latest from Everton stellar youth production lie at Finch Farm. Everton are a good team for young players to grow, and limited transfer funds mean youngsters will always have a chance to break into the team, and Barkley is not far away from doing that.
A versatile box-to-box player, who can play most position (good or bad thing?). The youngster’s progress through the Everton Squad was hindered when he suffered a leg brake in 2010.
Barkley has yet to have a solid run of first team games, and some time out on loan may be beneficial for him. I’m sure plenty of clubs would jump at the chance.
Barkley has recently signed a new contract at the club and seems happy there, telling the Independent of Manager Moyes, “He’s had young players coming through before. That’s what’s great about Everton; the manager will always give young players the chance to play at the right time.”
Newcastle’s beat out other clubs, including AC to Vuckic signature. The strong, Left-footed Slovenian plays midfield, and likes to get forward. Just 19, he has already played 5 games for Newcastle this season, but has been sent out on loan to Cardiff to gain some more experiment, and is doing well there, scoring once in his three games.
Again Newcastle is the kind of club young players may get a chance to break through, and Vuckic may not have to wait long to start regularly in the Prem. Newcastle fans will be pleased to hear they have the Youngster tied up to a 5 year contract. Some have said he has failed to live up to his ‘wonderkid’ tag he had upon arrival, but at just 19 Vuckic still has time to prove them wrong.
