Every season, a group of young players takes their first major step toward becoming Premier League stars.
But who are the front-runners to be the season’s breakthrough stars?
We have identified some young players who have the potential to make an immediate impact in the English Premier League with Betway sports betting by the end of the season.
Obviously, there is some guessing involved here, and we can’t possibly cover every prospective young superstar.
Liam Delap – Manchester City
Following Sergio Aguero’s departure, Manchester City came into the season with Gabriel Jesus as their sole recognized center-forward.
Pep Guardiola has alternatives, with both Ferran Torres and Raheem Sterling capable of playing as a false nine, and may considerably increase his squad size by looking into his young players.
The son of former Stoke player Rory was signed from Derby in 2018 and scored 24 times in 20 Under-23 games last season before making his Premier League debut in a Carabao Cup third-round win against Bournemouth.
You can bet on all EPL and cup matches with Betway, and watch this young talent in action.
Folarin Balogun – Arsenal
For several seasons, Arsenal and its supporters have been waiting for one of their potential young attackers to come up and start scoring in the Premier League.
With Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah’s development halting for various reasons, there are high expectations that Folarin Balogun can outrun them both.
The 20-year-old made his first-team debut last season, appearing in six games and scoring twice in five Europa League matches, and is now poised to be a regular fixture in the first-team squad after signing a new four-year contract in April.
Billy Gilmour – Norwich, on loan from Chelsea
Billy Gilmour, a Scotland midfielder, moved this summer in order to take the next step toward becoming a Premier League regular.
Following a few encouraging appearances in the heart of Chelsea’s midfield the previous season, the 20-year-old now needs top-flight minutes to attempt and deliver on his considerable promise.
He has made a temporary transfer to newly promoted Norwich City, with elite trio Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, and Mateo Kovacic ahead of him in the Blues’ pecking order.
If Gilmour can improve on his 11 first-team appearances in 2019-20, it will be a huge win for everyone concerned. Norwich are currently favourites with Betway to drop back to the championship after a poor start of the season.
Oliver Skipp – Tottenham
Oliver Skipp returned to Tottenham this summer after a loan spell at Norwich City, with 45 games, a goal and two assists, a Championship winner’s medal, and a lengthy number of glowing evaluations.
The Canaries would have loved to keep him for another season to help them adjust to life in the Premier League. Tottenham’s refusal to authorize such a transfer says a lot.
At Spurs, there is competition in the centre of the pitch, but with a new manager in Nuno Espirito Santo, everyone has a fresh start, and Skipp has already put in an outstanding performances.
Moises Caicedo – Brighton
Brighton allegedly beat a number of other European teams to the signing of Moises Caicedo, a 19-year-old Ecuadorean midfielder, for a cheap £4 million in the past winter transfer window.
Manager Graham Potter was quick to downplay expectations, noting that the youngster needed time to acclimatize to living in England and playing in the Premier League.
The extent to which he plays will be determined by the presence and form of Yves Bissouma, who was first choice as Brighton’s defensive lynchpin last season but has been linked with a transfer away from Sussex.
