Nigeria’s Isaac is Second most fielded under-21 forward in Europe

By Gilbert Alasa.
Nigeria’s Isaac Success has been named second most fielded forward under the age of 21 in the top European leagues, according to a CIES Football Observatory report.
The Granada hitman comes just behind Manchester United’s Anthony Martial and ahead of Stuttgart’s Timo Werner, Troyes’ Corentin Jean and Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman in the top five.
A former FIFA U17 World Cup winner with Nigeria, Isaac has been a regular starter with the Spanish side this season where he has made 21 starts in 23 appearances with a four goals tally.
Isaac, 20, has grabbed the attention of English Premier League side Watford where he is being touted as replacement for compatriot Odion Ighalo who is likely to depart for greener pastures at the end of the season.

In the other categories, Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin led the most-fielded full backs, Maximillian Meyer of Schalke led the attacking midfielders list while Leon Goretzka of Schalke, Niklas Sule of Hoffenheim and Gianluigi Donnarumma made the defensive midfielders, centre backs and goalkeepers lists respectively.
