9 young players who could catch the eye in the Football League this season

League 1

Dele Alli – MK Dons

dele-alliBack in March, MK Dons manager Karl Robinson described Dele Alli as “one of the most gifted 17-year-olds this country has ever seen.” Strong words, but when reports begin to say that teams like Liverpool are closing in on the midfielder, it gets harder to dismiss them as just the gaffer boosting his confidence.

He made 33 league appearances last season whilst scoring six goals, which included a hat-trick against Notts County and a stunning 25-yard drive against Coventry. Tall with strong attacking runs, he looks more comfortable coming forward and looked to be really growing as a player as the season went on. Should he continue to have a prominent role for MK Dons in the upcoming season, it’ll be no surprise when Premier League clubs come in to snap him up.
