Bayern youngster Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg ready to fill Philipp Lahm void

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has been ruled out for three months with a broken ankle.

As a 19-year-old at one of the biggest clubs on earth, decisions can be difficult to make. On the one hand, players are normally understandably confident of their own ability to eventually make first-team level -- self-belief being a prerequisite to reach the very top level. Yet, for many, there is also a stark understanding of the realities of the challenge they face.

For Bayern Munich's Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, that time has come. Once of Brondby, the Denmark international midfielder is now in his...

Anderlecht youngster Youri Tielemans backed for the big time

Anderlecht have floundered recently in their domestic campaign after their crushing loss to Arsenal on matchday three.

Youri Tielemans

D.o.B: March 7, 1997
Club: Anderlecht
Position: Central midfield
Nationality: Belgian
Height: 176 cm
Weight: 72 kg
Estimated value: 16 million euros

A young Youri Tielemans joined Anderlecht at the age of 5 in 2002, beginning a path to the top of the club that would see him eventually make his first-team debut shortly after his 16th birthday. In the process, he became the fourth-youngest player in the Belgian club's history.

Such feats and records have become standard in his career thus far, becoming the third youngest player in the history of the Champions League just a couple of months later. Remarkably, he has never looked out of place on...

Nigerian striker Moses Simon making his name at Slovakian side AS Trencin

Moses Simon
Nigerian striker Moses Simon is attracting attention.

It is fair to say that Slovakia's AS Trencin are not the most fashionable of European clubs. Indeed, many supporters (perhaps with the exception of Hull City fans) would not even be aware of their existence.

Yet, the small club that only won promotion from the second division in 2011 have been attracting a lot of attention of late. Guided by owner and former Ajax player Tschen La Ling they have lofty ambitions and, as part of those plans, have developed a player recruitment strategy aimed at buying...

Diego Rolan delivering on his potential at Ligue 1 and Uruguay

Uruguayan forward Diego Rolan is becoming a scoring threat at Bordeaux, even if he needs to bulk up to play his favoured central striker role.

The start of the Ligue 1 season has not quite gone to script, with expected runaway champions Paris Saint-Germain currently five points off the pace set by Marseille nine games into the campaign. With Willy Sagnol's Bordeaux also sneaking in ahead of the Parisien side, the season ahead is beautifully poised at this early stage.

What is highly impressive about the French top flight is its ability to constantly replenish itself with talents as more established names move on and this year is no different....

Scouting Report: Jose Luis Gaya is the left-back of the future for Valencia

Jose Gaya is tipped for a bright future in the game.

Jose Luis Gaya

D.o.B: May 25, 1995
Club: Valencia
Position: Left-back
Nationality: Spanish
Height: 172 cm
Weight: 67 kg
Estimated value: £8 million

A local of Pedreguer, Jose Gaya has begun the season as first-choice left-back for Valencia CF under manager Nuno Espirito Santo. A product of the club's academy system, Gaya has come right through the ranks at the Mestalla and is seen as one of the best prospects to emerge in many years. Fortunately, thanks to the summer departure of Juan Bernat to join FC Bayern, a route to first-team football has emerged at the right time for his development.

A regular with Spanish youth teams from under-16...

D.o.B: March 23,1994
Club: Basel
Position: Winger
Nationality: Paraguay
Height: 172cm

Basel were roundly beaten by Real Madrid in their opening Champions League group stage fixture, but at least one of their players came away enriched by the experience. Derlis González made his Champions League debut on one of European football's grandest stages and marked the occasion with an impressive performance and a well-taken goal.

The story of González's rise begins at Rubio Ñu, a small club from the Santísima Trindad neighbourhood of the Paraguayan capital of Asunción....
