Value Youth Players under £1 - Possible long term holds

Following on from yesterdays post on youth players.


Below are further youth players who could possibly increase in price due the reasons below.


It is important to note that many of the players below are not currently, regularly playing in PB leagues and so in the short term may not increase in price and money could possibly be used better elsewhere. However, with the growth in Football Index as a platform and the continuation of young players being IPO'd at relatively high prices, existing lower priced youth players could start to look value in the long term given their potential.


Below are 6 youth players under £1 which could possibly increase considerably throughout 2020 if they start to improve their performances and could increase considerably more in the long term if they live up to their potential and for the reasons below.

Ozan Kabak

Price: £0.94

Team: Schalke

Age: 19

Position: Defender (Center Back)

Country: Turkey


Pros:

  • Regularly starts for Schalke

  • Capable of scoring goals - 5 goals in 25 Bundesliga games is a strong record for a center back

  • Hit some fairly high PB scores already this season from center back - 158, 167, 198

  • Turkey International - EURO 2020

  • Played very well in Schalke's last game against Eintracht Frankfurt - he was solid in defence and also good on the ball, stood out to me for being strong going forward and in possession especially for a center back


Cons:

  • Currently in a non-pb league

  • Will not play at EURO 2020

Price: £0.93
