Rodrigo - Ateltico player, one of the most exciting youngsters in La Liga currently

The Spanish top tier continues to attract some of the most talented players across Europe. Let’s take a look at the wonderkids whose stars’ are on the rise and who you should be considering for your fantasy football draft. 

Rodrigo (Atletico Madrid)


He’s turned 22 which means he is barely eligible for inclusion on this list. But the Spanish midfielder hasn’t been wasting his time in Spain. He’s already played in three seasons for Villareal, before earning a €20 million to Atletico Madrid. The additional attention he has been receiving has spread to the national team, with Rodri earning his first call up in 2018. In FootballCoin he has managed 30 points after three games. Worth considering for your team? Absolutely!

Maxi Gomez (Celta Vigo)


Gomez has had a strong season start Several stats sites list him as one of the best players in the current La Liga season. He’s managed 3 goals and 2 assists for Celta Vigo, putting him just above fellow Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez in the top goalscoring list. A player certainly worth watching and taking notice of for the upcoming contests. Gomez has accumulated a whopping 102 points after the first three matches in La Liga.

Vinicius Jr (Real Madrid)

Yes, the player everyone has been talking about since his arrival at Madrid in the summer. With frequent comparisons to the Brazilian Ronaldo there is certainly a great weight of expectation on Vinicius Jr’s shoulders. But the 18 year old has shown he is hungry to prove himself at Real.

He’s been given some playing time in friendlies and has been included in the main squad for the upcoming season. Vinicius Jr has yet to start for Real in La Liga, but with plenty of fixtures on the way, things could soon change. Keep an eye on him when choosing your team.

Carlos Soler (Valencia)


Soler is only 20 years old and last year made 15 appearances for Valencia, the club where he’s come up to the ranks. Even more impressively, he’s managed more assists from open play than the likes of Alba, Guardado or Guedes.

The Bats are having to fight off considerable amount of interest for the young midfielder. For now, they’re making good use of his services. Soler has 90 points this season and only looks to be getting started.

Arthur (Barcelona)


Arthur - Barcelona

As is to be expected, Barcelona and Real Madrid usually get the pick of the litter of talented youngsters making their way to La Liga. Arthur has already been compared to Xavi and handed the #8 jersey. Arthur is being introduced steadily to football life in Spain. He’s been responsible for 29 points in this FootballCoin season, but there is likely more on the way.
