Joaquin

Club: Real Betis
Position: Midfielder

A prodigious talent who will turn 22 during the tournament and is already marked down as one of the stars of the future.

An attacking midfielder, Joaquin is comfortable in the centre or on the right flank - and can be devastating in either position.

He is at his best with the ball at his feet, can take on defenders or pick out a pass - and also possesses a venomous shot.

Real Madrid are already interested, and they will be joined by a host of clubs home and abroad if Joaquin is at his best this summer.
