Camavinga under the radar
Eduardo Camavinga will likely become one of the most exciting players on the planets if his current course of development continues.
Whilst at present, the likes of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe are taking the headlines for who could be the most exciting summer transfer of 2021, the possibility of the 18-year old moving on is maybe getting overshadowed.
101 produced a detailed breakdown of the midfielder with tactical analysis and expert insight which can be fund here.
Camavinga’s agent Jonathan Barnett backed the teenager to play in the Premier League next season.
“Camavinga can play next year in the Premier League. He is that good. Whether he will or not, I don’t know. His background has been tough if you know what he went through as a refugee and the burning of his home (in Rennes),” said Barnett.
“But his character is amazingly strong. He is not your average 18-year-old. Playing in front of 100,000 people is not going to scare him. He’s a lovely boy and I think he’s going to be a superstar.”

Rennes deal to be rejected
The possibility of the Frenchman playing in the Premier League could become a reality very soon as The Athletic reports that he is set to reject the latest offer from Rennes in favour of a move away.
His current deal runs out in 2022 meaning that he could play for another season before making the decision to leave on a free transfer.
Considering the level of quality associated with the Frenchman, it is likely that should Rennes be unable to tie him down to a new deal, the preference would be to cash in and earn as much as feasibly possible.
He has spoken of his ‘flattery’ of being linked with the likes of Real Madrid.
“Certainly when a big club is interested, it is nice. But I am not getting carried away. I took this choice with my family (to stay at Rennes),” he said.
“Today we are happy to have made this decision. I just need to focus on football and not think too much about everything else around it. Life is very good at the moment. Life is very good at the moment.”
Could he yet find himself in Spain or will his agents words of the Premier League come true?
