Top 3: La Liga youngsters

La Liga boasts some of the best talent in the world, so I've picked out a few superstars that have seemingly slipped under the radar of Europe's top clubs. 

Just like how Michael Laudrup found Michu for Swansea, there are many undiscovered hidden gems in La Liga. With the transfer window coming to an end in just a few days, some stressed managers will be desperate to strengthen their squads, and here are three suggestions . . .

Nelson Oliveira - Deportivo La Coruna

Oliviera had a few brief appearances for Portugal in the Euro's last year, and has since been loaned to Deportivo La Coruna, who are struggling at the bottom of the table, four points adrift from safety.

Having been loaned from SL Benefica, it looks like the Portuguese league leaders are trying to aid his development process to bolster their chances next season. 

Standing at 186cm, Oliviera is a striker who not only possesses aerial ability but also has a skilful touch on the ball. If they act fast, a host of Premier League clubs could swoop in and pick him up for a reasonable price.

Iker Munian - Athletic Club

Munian has been vital in Athletic de Bilbao's fight to stay in La Liga, playing almost every match Bilbao have faced in the league this season. 

Munian is a skilful winger with pace, and is extremely highly-rated by officials at the club.

Munian could be available for the right price having yet to fulfil his potential, and teams could do a lot worse than to recruit the Spanish playmaker.

Thibaut Courtois - Atletico Madrid

A 20-year-old goalkeeper currently on loan from Chelsea to La Liga title contenders Atletico Madrid. 

With Courtois' first-team chances at Chelsea severely restricted, the Spanish stopper is likely to be available on loan again next year. 

However, Chelsea may be tempted to part with the former Genk keeper should the offer be big enough.
