They have shined this season and proven that you don’t need experience to be good. Here are the best u23 goalscorers from the 2019/2020 season, who were born after the 1st, January 1997. Only the top 5 leagues are considered. Both club and national team goals are counted.
6. Lautaro Martínez
The Argentenian is regarded as the future of his country. After he signed for Inter Milan in December 2018, not only did he manage to raise his market value from 25,00€ million to 70,00€ million, but he also scored 21 goals in 49 games this season. This makes him the 6th best U23 goalscorer in the top 5 leagues.
5. Jadon Sancho
The Englishman is valued at 117,00€ million right now. That makes him the 8th most valuable player in the world and the 1st in Germany. This season he showed why he is worth so much, by scoring 22 goals in 50 games for club and country this season. He even assisted about the same amount.
4. Gabriel Jesus
When Manchester City bought the youngster in 2017 for 32,00€ million, which was twice his market value at that time, many said that they made a horrible deal. But now, three years later, Jesus is valued at 56,00€ million and scored 23 goals in 52 games, silencing all those who doubted him when he moved to England.
3. Marcus Rashford
Even though Rashford is only 22 years old, he has already been playing professionally for Manchester United since 2016. He came from their own academy, therefore they didn’t even have to pay a transfer fee. Nowadays the Englishman is worth 80,00€ million and he scored 25 goals in 50 games for club and country, making him the third best u23 goalscorer.
2. Kylian Mbappé
This is the most valuable player in the world right now with 180,00€ million. He is just 21 years old, but was already nominated for the Ballon d’Or last year. The Frenchman won the league 4 times in a row. He scored 33 goals in 43 games this season, making him not only the second best u23 goalscorer, but also one of the best in the world.
1. Erling Haaland
And in first place is Erling Haaland. Before he came to Dortmund last winter only few people knew him, but now, after scoring 44 goals in 42 games, the whole football world knows him. In only one year the Norwegian managed to upgrade his market value from 5,00€ million to 72,00€ million. The 2019/2020 season was his first Champions League season, but he already broke several records, for example he is the first player ever to score six goals in his first three Champions League games.
