After last weeks bumper promotion with Bernardo Silva and Kylian Mbappé, still both trading above £1, I thought I’d take a look at the prospects of this Fridays contenders.
As with last weeks promotion from the squad list both Youri Tielemans and Mauro Icardi are young talents who have been linked with Premier League teams. Traders looking to get these talents at as low a price as possible with a view to a possible long term hold is sure to help the price today.
At 13.00 the first IPO will be for Inter Milan’s controversial forward, Mauro Icardi. The young Argentine is no stranger to media attention with his personal life a hot topic in Italy, add in his public spat with the Inter tifosi this year and he has all the ingredients for a buzz magnet should he come to the Premier League. In the past, the striker has been heavily linked with Arsenal. We’ve seen the price players can reach with some transfer speculation and Icardi is sure to be an enticing prospect for punters. Although it has to be noted that as the Inter Captain any transfer will not be easy and this has to be borne in mind with the ceiling on the price Icardi may reach.
Second up at 13.15 is the young Belgian, Youri Tielmans currently playing his trade for Anderlecht in his home country. Tielmans hit the headlines this week with two wondergoals for his club. Such performances have brought about strong links with both Everton and Tottenham, with a 15 Million price tag, reported in the media. With the current influx of Belgians in the Premier League could Youri be set to join them. Arguably the Belgian offers traders the greatest potential today with the aforementioned transfer stories being in the past few days rather than weeks like Icardi.
Best of luck traders!
