Born in 1991, the Colombian has unusual strength, creativity, pace, a great eye for goal, and is very versatile, as evidenced in his productive seasons with Atalanta and his national team.

Muriel is a footballer that is so underappreciated for his performances in 2021.

Danny Ings

The Southampton forward has been a standout performer at the Saint Mary’s for the past two seasons now.

At 28, the former Liverpool striker is still one of the most dangerous forwards in the Premier League.

Souček has proven to be one of the most influential Premier League signings in the past year following his scintillating performances for West Ham in the 2020/21 season.

However, the Czech Republic player has not been praised enough for his work rate.

Federico Chiesa

The Italian shone like a million stars for Juventus during the 2020/21 season and his performances have seen him earn a place in the Italian squad for Euro 2020, where he has continued with his eye-catching performances.

Domenico Berardi

26-year-old Berardi is a dazzling attacker for Serie A outfit Sassuolo and the Italian national team. He is currently representing Italy well at Euro 2020.

The tricky and fast-paced winger is the record goalscorer for Sassuolo with over 100 goals.
