Ian Maatsen: 21-year-old Burnley defender

The 21-year-old Dutch defender Ian Maatsen is already one of the leaders of his team Burnley. The club, which plays in the Championship, is currently leading the English second division. The team owes its success to the talent and consistency of its left back who has played 34 games out of a possible 41 since the beginning of the season for 4 goals scored and 6 assists. He also received 6 yellow cards and 1 red card.

The player has been performing well on the field but also on Sorare football with for example a score of 70 obtained during his last game against Sheffield United! On loan from Chelsea, Ian Maatsen seems to be enjoying himself at the lower level this season and his loan could be renewed if the club reaches the Premier League next season.

On the side of Chelsea, where he is under contract until June 2024, places are very expensive and it is not certain that the young player will find his place there right away. On the Sorare resale cards market, the Limited cards are selling for around 12$ at the moment. A good price for a player with great potential!

Bilal El Khannous: 18-year-old midfielder from Gent

Direction Belgium and the Jupiler League to present the second talent of this month: Bilal El Khannous. The 18 year old midfielder is also part of the starting line-up of his team currently 4th in the league and still engaged in the Conference League for the return match against West Ham this Thursday.

This season, the player has lined up high level performances during the 32 games out of 33 possible played! His value has risen to 10 million euros on the transfer market. A good deal for the club of Gent who trained the player and is bound until 2027 with him. On the resale market of Sorare, the price of his card in Limited is between 20 and 25$ at the moment.
