2. Joshua Kimmich
If we talk about one in-form most versatile player, the one name that comes to our head is Joshua Kimmich. Switching from Right back to Defensive Midfielder, the only position has changed but his form is permanent. His amazing vision and hard work make him one of the best defensive midfielders in the world right now. People often debate between Casimiro and Kimmich about who is the better midfielder. He is a key player in Bayern and Germany National Team squad.
3. Wilfred Ndidi
Wilfred Ndidi, one of those names who has been consistent for the past 2-3 years. He always gives his best and never fails to amaze us with his brilliant performance. He pockets big players in big games and is also awarded the man of the match award in important games. He is wanted by big clubs like Real Madrid, Manchester United, Barcelona, etc. Last Year, Real Madrid wanted him as a backup for Carlos Casimiro but due to some reason, this could not happen. In the coming year, more clubs will go after him.
4. Ruben Neves
One of the most underrated names in football is Ruben Neves. He doesn’t talk much or show off on social media, but he always shows who he is on the field with his brilliant performance. The main target of clubs like Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, etc. This was possible due to his brilliant gameplay and personality. He is a main free-kick taker and penalty taker for wolves and scores worldies always.
Big and Simple player. Rodri always plays the calm game. He is good at passing and intercepting the ball. When he made a move to Manchester City from Athletico Madrid, nobody believed he could succeed in Manchester City, but look at him now. He is the regular starter for the city and always impresses us with his performance. One of the most underrated defensive midfielders in the world.
Is there anyone who doesn’t love Kante? I know there is nobody. Everyone loves Kante, as a player and as a person. He won the Premier League with Leicester City and Chelsea and was a key player in both victories. Also made it to the Premier League Player of the Year and other big stages. The world cup winner made his name into the history of football with major contributions. At the moment, due to injuries, he is not playing much and not in the form but without a doubt, when he plays, he is the best player on the pitch.
