With talent emerging every day all over the globe statistics has it that some of the most successful and talented players in world football come from South American countries.
While this is an unarguable fact the truth is whether it’s South American or European countries that produce some of the most talented and successful footballers, the fact is not everyone would make it to the pinnacle of their professional career either due through injury, personal challenge or laziness.
While the above statement is also a fact we’ll look at the five best young Argentinian players who are destined for greatness, having shown the potential and zeal to be as successful as their predecessors.
Julian Alvarez – (Manchester City/River Plate)
Manchester City’s new signing is undoubtedly the most talked-about Argentine right now, having come of age with River Plate before the Citizens poached him away from the South American giant in the January transfer window.
The U23 international is a well-rounded forward who can play as a center-forward or winger with an electrifying pace and feet to connect well with his teammates.
With Alvarez now arguably the face of all Argentinian youngsters, it would be interesting to how swift he would grow with his style and experience just like his predecessors who had done greats things in world football.
Lisandro Martinez – (Ajax)
Martinez is one of the most consistent Argentine players currently plying his trade in the Eredivisie since leaving his native country in 2019.
The Ajax center-back is a brilliant player who has the ability to play as a defender or defensive midfielder and has consistently shown his good at what he does playing for the Dutch giant.
His positioning, reading of the game, and understanding of differences on the pitch stand him top among his Argentine mates as one the finest players in 2022.
Nicolas Gonzalez – (Fiorentina)
Gonzalez is another brilliant Argentine player that can be likened to Di Maria due to his style of play either as a winger or central midfielder. He’s very fast and likes to make dazzling runs in behind the opposition’s half in other to score or create an opportunity for his teammates.
His brilliant characteristics as a player make him one of the respected Argentine footballers who are capable of conjuring a magic moment for his team with his vision, speed, and trickery on the ball.
Before joining Fiorentina for €23m from Stuttgart last year he was, without doubt, the German side’s best player in the Bundesliga having contributed hugely to the team’s progress.
The 2019 U17 Sudamericana Champions is regarded as a classic Argentinian number ten with silky dribbling skills, an incisive eye for passing, and the ability to conjure something special out of nothing.
With Palacios seen as the future playmaker for La Albiceleste, he must as a matter of fact live up to expectations in terms of his style of play, decision making off and on the ball, defensively and offensive wise for him to be the best of the midfielder.
The Basel midfielder is just 19 years old and still has many things to learn, but on the other hand fortunately for Argentina, they’ve found themselves a diamond that is ready to shine at the international and club levels.
Nahuel Molina – (Udinese)
Molina has been playing with highly smart and experienced defenders in Seria A since he joined Udinese on a free transfer from Boca Juniors in 2020, and he can be said to be one of the most consistent defenders in the league.
As he evolves into a more domineering right back from a very weak one, Molina has grown into his own becoming a smart and hard-to-pass defender which is a testament to how swift the former Boca Juniors player has developed.
With his future looking very bright he’s undoubtedly a future star for Argentine football, and should he continue to improve in his skills, passes, vision, and all-around play Molina would go places and achieve success.
