#5: Ousmane Dembélé
20-year-old French international Ousmane Dembélé moved to Barcelona this summer in a record breaking €105 million move. After his breakthrough season last year at Borussia Dortmund, big things are expected of the youngster.
His Barcelona career hasn't started well though, with just 2 league appearances before he got injured and was ruled out for 2 months. Time is something the youngster has on his side and he can be expected to pay rich dividends on the €250,000 Barcelona to spend on him every week.
