After the immense success that Barcelona have achieved with Ansu Fati this season, it seems that the Catalan club’s habit of roping in talented youngsters who can continue to shine for the team for a long time to come has not abated even a little bit. Marca are now reporting that the Cules are looking to sign Rayo Vallecano youngster Fabian Luzzi.
The youngster has been held as one of the most promising players on the circuit, and there are other contenders for the 16-year-old. Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are also monitoring the situation and would like to secure the services of him. However, the player has informed the news outlet that he would like to continue staying at Rayo and carry on with his development from there.
Who is Fabian Luzzi?
The youngster made waves across the Rayo ranks after he was invited by manager Paco Jémez to train with the first-team squad this season. Following that spell, he was also included in the first-team squad on three occasions in Cup matches, although the forward did not get the opportunity to take the field.
Being associated with the club for the past five years, he has been the top scorer for the team at every stage of the youth setup, and that has earned him numerous admirers among the Madrid based side. However, what really made the nation take notice of Luzzi has been his spectacular performances for the Spain U-16 side where he scored four goals in 5 matches.
What does he offer?
A natural goal-scorer, the starlet plays in the centre-forward position, although he has been occasionally deployed on either of the flanks. His agility and creativity have been breathtaking for a player of his age, and Luzzi has demonstrated high football IQ. At Barcelona, he would have the chance to train with some of the most exciting prospects of the country amid world-class facilities, which could further improve his skills. Already Luzzi has shown breathtaking promise, and that needs to be nurtured carefully to develop him into a world-beater someday.
Does Barcelona suit him?
If there is any club in the world which is capable of transforming talented youth prospects into great footballers, it is the Catalan side. For years the La Masia has been promoting gifted individuals and making them into prominent players.
Fabian Luzzi has all the potential in the world to break into the Barca and the Spanish team someday, but for that to happen, he must continue with his development. Moreover, throughout the years, the Cules have been known to give their academy graduates priority over high profile signings. Likewise, the Brazil born talent can someday go on to mesmerise the Camp Nou faithful.
