Ahead of the 38 matchday programme, here are some selected African teenagers that are expected to breakout in the league this season.
Born to Nigerian parents, but currently playing for Arsenal and the youths teams of the England national team, the young striker is expected to enjoy a debut long season under Mikel Arteta this season. With Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette all hitting their 30’s, Coach Mikel Arteta is on the look out for fresh blood in their attacking department. Although Eddie Nketiah is also on the cards to feature for the gunners, Forlan Balogun will enjoy similar game time having already made his debut last season and signing a new contract in April this year.
Also born to Nigerian parents but born in Austria, the young starlet is earning the hearts of pundits with his classic midfield prowess. Carney plays for Aston Villa and has already been compared to Paul Pogba due to their similarities in qualities and techniques when they are on the ball. With the exit of Grealish, it is expected that he gets some minutes under his belt in the first half of the season and hopefully his performance will sprout more game time in the second half of the season.
A steady rising potential, this season is set to be one of the best for Callum Hudson Odoi. Born to Ghanaian parents, it has been alleged that after his visit to the home of his parents this summer, he has been by far the best player in the Chelsea training camp during the preseason. It is yet to see how that will translate into game time for the young English talent.
