Szabolcs Schön (8/19)

Still only 16-years-old, Hungarian playmaker Szabolcs Schön is the youngest player on this list. The midfielder, who can play on both wings as well, is a joy to watch. Schön had his skills on show during the Future Cup this year where his rapid pace and great dribbling was a joy to watch. The Hungarian U-17 international looks set to join the Under-19’s this season, which really shows how fondly he’s looked upon at Ajax.

Schön looks like an ideal winger for Ajax’s fluid system: comfortable running down the flanks or cutting inside on either flank. He’s a threat from basically anywhere in the final third. The Hungarian’s powerful left foot keeps defenders tight to him, which allows Szabolcs to drive past them with a quick dribble. Schön’s crossing is also threatnening, while his speed on and off the ball makes him a dynamic threat when Ajax has the ball.

It’s early days for Szabolcs Schön, but the player who recently transferred from Budapest Honvéd to Ajax (with fellow Hungarian youngster Olivér Horváth) is being backed by many to be the next best thing at the Johan Cruijff Arena.
