20. Lucas Digne – Lille, 20
The France international was deemed so good during his early emergence at Lille that Paris Saint Germain sought to invest a chunk of their newly acquired wealth on securing his future ahead of some serious interest from the Premier League.
However, he has found first team football harder to come by this time around, but coach Laurent Blanc is a fan and Digne has spoken of his patience in waiting for the right time to come along to get into the side. With one France cap to his name already he will have a huge future in the game.
