The Ansu Fati phenomenon is transcending borders. The Barcelona forward aged just 16 has made a huge impact in Ernesto Valverde's side this season. French newspaper L'Equipe have now included him in a list of the six most promising players in the game at the moment. Also included are Joelson Fernandes (Sporting Portugal), Sebastiano Esposito (Inter Milan), Kramoko Dembélé (Celtic Glasgow), Mohamed Ihattaren (PSV Eindhoven) and Karim Adeyemi (Red Bull Salzburg).
In his profile, L'Equipe highlight his historic debut against Real Betis at Camp Nou, his performance against Valencia and the praise which has come from Lionel Messi. They explain his background, his development and look ahead at what the future could hold for the talented teenager.
The same article includes some comments from ex-Barça player Lobo Carrasco. The former forward says that "the mental factor is 30 or 40 percent of the success. If you don't have that, you can't fight with the 'monsters' there are at Barça. In addition to his talent, he looks very mature for his age, When he gets the ball he seems calm, without doubts, like Mbappe when he debuted with Monaco."
