Market Value Winner
Brighton & Hove Albion secured one of South America’s greatest talents in Julio Enciso this summer. The 18-year-old has only played once this season in the EFL Cup, but the “Seagulls” seem to be convinced of the tactics on the transfer market. With Facundo Buonanotte, the next youngster is about to step into England.
The 17-year-old offensive player made his debut at CA Rosario Central in the past season of the Argentine professional league and promptly became a top performer. In 24 appearances he was directly involved in six goals and thus one of the few rays of hope in an otherwise mixed season in the 20th table.
