As others have mentioned AZ's Calvin Stengs is a great player, but I think their 18(!) year old striker Myron Boad is an interesting talent as well. He has already scored 6 goals in the league and 4 in the Europa League (+ 9 assists so far this season).


Scored 2 goals today in the Europa League and 1 in the league last Saturday.

Jack Lahne, 18 year old Swedish striker. Recently moved to Amiens in Ligue 1 where he is part of their youth setup. A fixture in our youth national teams as well. He will be an interesting talent to follow.

He scored this beauty tonight.

Very strong for a 21 year old and also pretty good with the ball at his feet. A lot of pace as well.
Had a good couple of brainfarts in him last night tho. That will of course be straightened out with time and experience. Same as with Sanchez's mistakes.

That would be quite the defensive duo.

Agreed, it's almost inevitable with a young centre-back, especially at such a high level.. Mattijs de Ligt has already made some huge mistakes at Juve and had the occassional brainfart at Ajax as well, but you can see that he and Upamecano will probably become world-class.

I just chuckle at people writing those mistakes off for guys like Upamecano and De Ligt but Sanchez gets a lot of abuse for it from some. If we could land Upamecano we would be set for CBs for quite a while with him, Sanchez and Foyth.
