OPINION: 5 Young Players That Can Catch The Eyes Of Top European Clubs After The Tournament

With the African Nations Cup about to begin on the 9th of January in Cameroon, several of Europe's top clubs will be keeping an eye out for players they could recruit when the summer transfer market opens in the coming months.

There will be players who will utilize the competition as a stepping stone on their way to becoming famous. Most football fans should take note of the following players:

1. Felix Afena-Gyan

After establishing himself at club level, the young center forward will be representing Ghana in next year's competition. He will be one of the young stars to keep an eye on, as he has already proven himself at international level. When AS Roma met Genoa, he scored twice in the match.

2- Hannibal Mejbri

This competition might be the competition that propels him into the Manchester United senior team, or even into a top-tier team. Several media outlets have referred to him as "the new Paul Scholes" because of the way he plays. He will be representing the Carthage eagles of Tunisia in this competition. Earlier this season, he appeared for the Red Devils in their final encounter of the 2020/21 campaign.

3- Ismaila Sarr

The 23-year-old will be representing Senegal at the tournament, and he has also been in excellent form for his club side, Watford, in the Premier League. High-profile clubs have been vying for his signing up until now, but by the end of the tournament, his value is expected to soar as well.

4- Franck Kessié

AC Milan's Andrea Pirlo is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, and he presently represents the club. The 24-year-old has yet to sign a contract extension with the San Siro, but he could be on his way to a lucrative new club by the end of the Cameroon tournament. Manchester United and Arsenal are among the clubs who are keeping an eye on the Ivorian.

5. Emmanuel Dennis

Despite his young age, the 24-year-old Nigerian has been in outstanding form this season, earning him a place in the EPL's November player of the year award. If he is able to make an impact at the AFCON, it is almost guaranteed that he will sign a lucrative contract with one of the top European clubs in the coming months.
