Nathaniel Chalobah

Our first bright young talent is Chalobah. He is a tall defensive midfielder who has represented England at youth level on multiple occasions. He plays for Chelsea but has spent the past three seasons out on loan to Watford, Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough.

The presence of Nemanja Matic, Ramires and John Obi Mikel in the current Chelsea squad makes it hard for the English youngster to break into the first team but he may feature in a couple of games if he is not sent out on loan once again.

Chalobah is highly-rated by all fanatical football fans who know all about his potential. The player has yet to appear for Chelsea but he could feature in this season's League Cup or in the early rounds of the FA Cup. This player is certainly one to look out for.

Adrien Rabiot

Rabiot is a French footballer who plays for Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 as a central midfielder. The 19-year-old has featured in his fair share of games in Paris but also had a loan spell out at Toulouse.

Rabiot has also featured in the Champions League, which is impressive for a player of his age. As a player reminiscent of a young Andrea Pirio, he has a lot of potential and should represent France possibly at the next World Cup or European Championships.

Wellington Silva

Silva is a Brazilian winger for Arsenal, although he is yet to make a senior appearance for the Gunners with Serge Gnabry, Joel Campbell and others ahead of him.

He has had loan spells at Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and this season will head to Almería. Arsene Wenger has tipped him to do great things throughout his career and would clearly like to keep the skilful Brazilian - hence why he has been sent out on loan for so long.

It will be hard to break into the Arsenal team with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the mix, however.

Lucas Piazon

Another Brazilian, Piazon has actually made a Premier League appearance for Chelsea. He has also spent two years on loan at Malaga and Vitesse and has been loaned out once again to Eintracht Frankfurt this summer.

We are yet to know if he will feature in Jose Mourinho's plans in the future but wherever he ends up, this player will certainly make headlines. Piazon is currently 20 and may refuse another loan after this one expires which means he will either have to be used or sold. He may go for a hefty price too as he has so much potential.

Jores Okore

Another player looking to break into a Premier League first team is centre-back Okore. He currently plays for Aston Villa and made three appearances in 2013.

Okore is considered a capable and aggressive defender, who is known for his pace and strength. A very physical defender could be just what Villa just need and he fills that role perfectly.

Okore plays for Denmark and things are looking bright for the 21-year-old. Villa won't want to let him go but his potential has a host of clubs linked to the defender. He certainly is one for the future.

Zakaria Bakkali

Bakkali is a winger for PSV and is arguably the most exciting player included in this article. He has been selected for the Belgium national team and is most famous for becoming the youngest Eredivisie player of all time to score a hat-trick, at the age of just 17.

Bakkali is the youngest player in the Belgian squad at the moment, already competing with the likes of Kevin Mirallas and Dries Mertens.

There's no doubt the player will be bought by a big name soon, whether it be from the Premier League, Liga BBVA, Ligue 1 or the Bundesliga.
