Talent Scout: South American Wonderkids

Continuing our Talent Scout series, this week Forebet takes a look at some of the hottest prospects in South American. This region of the world has produced some of the most iconic players in footballing history. Pele, Maradona, Messi, and Ronaldo all emanated from South American and were each dubbed wonderkids at an early age.

Here is a selection of the upcoming teenage prospects from South America that already have scouts and managers talking.

  • Federico Redondo – defensive midfielder Redondo is the son of the former Real Madrid player Fernando Redondo and plays in a very similar style to his father. Federico hasdeveloped well at Argentinos Juniors and is already training with the first-team squad.
  • Dario Sarmiento – an Argentine winger that plays for Estudiantes. Sarmiento has already been linked with a move to Manchester City, despite only making his debut for his club in October. With Messi’s career approaching its final stages, there is a lot of pressure on young Argentinians to fill his boots.
  • Bruno Goncalves – technically gifted and graced with plenty of pace, Goncalves is one of Brazil’s biggest hopes for the future. Bruno is a striker that is in good hands at Red Bull Bragantino as they will aid his development before moving him on for what is expected to be a big fee.
  • Tomas Angel – son of the ex-Aston Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel, Thomas is a goal scorer just like his father. Currently playing for Atletico Nacional, Angel is already training with the first-team squad and has scouts from around Europe keeping tabs on him.
  • Jhon Jader Duran – the Colombian striker has been likened to Romelu Lukaku due to his style of play and the fact he is 16-years old and already 6ft tall. Guran has represented Colombia at U15, U17, and U20 level. At the age of just 15 he became the youngster player to score in the Colombian Categoria Primera A. There are very high hopes in his native country as Duran came through the same academy that produced James Rodriguez.
  • Anthony Valencia – yet another Valencia that looks set to represent Ecuador at the highest level. The pacey left-winger prefers to play on the right and cut inside, as is increasingly the way with modern-day wide men. Valencia plies his trade at Independiente del Valle but hopes to follow in the footsteps of Christian Benitez, Felipe Caicedo, Antonio Valencia, and Enner Valencia, and move to the Premier League one day.
  • Kluiverth Aguilar – is a Peruvian full-back that plays mostly on the right-hand side. Aguilar is said to have idolised Brazilian full-back Dani Alves and that can been seen is his attacking mindset. Currently, Aguilar is part of the Peru Under23’s and has already signed a contract with Manchester City, but will stay with Alianza Lima until he turns 18.
  • Juan Ignacio Cabrera – the young Schalke midfielder likes to play behind the forwards, using his vision to create goalscoring opportunities. Despite living in Germany since before he was a teenager, Cabrera represents Uruguay, and growing up, his favourite player was Diego Forlan.
