We have already covered a lot about Argentina’s prospects in the Qatar World Cup. While we will continue to do so moving forward as well, in this article, we shall be talking about the Top 3 such Argentine youngsters who have shown great potential in recent days (i.e Argentine youngsters we need to keep an eye on).
3. Lucas Beltran
Lucas Beltran is one of the lesser-known Argentine prodigies. He plays for the Argentine Primera División club River Plate (one of the most famous clubs in Argentina) and has proved himself to be an elite-level footballer time and again.
He is only 21-years and old and had lots to learn and improve though. But looking at his skillsets as of now, Lucas Beltran might be the next forward that the European clubs need to keep an eye on.
He was phenomenal on his lean spell to Colon in 2021 where he scored 5 times in 13 appearances. He keeps the opposition under pressure for almost the entire match and has an unbelievable conversion rate.

2. Enzo Fernandez
Enzo Fernandez is being considered the next big thing in the Argentine football scenario. The central midfielder might not have great stats but he makes his presence felt in the midfield in every single match.
After impressing the world with his consistent performances in the Argentina Primera Division, he was swooped by Benfica in June 2022 in a big move. It is being said that after Darwin Nunez, Enzo Fernandez will be Benfica’s new €100 Million asset. In fact, he is currently estimated to be worth around £106 Million. Both Manchester United and Liverpool are interested in buying the 21-year-old.
He recently made his debut for the National team and amazed everyone with his display. Enzo Fernandez is just too good and deserves to be playing in a top-tier European club as soon as possible.

1. Julian Alvarez
Julian Alvarez shocked the world earlier this year by sealing his big-money move to Manchester City. We know how good City’s scouting team is and thus people started to learn more and more about 22-years old, only to be mesmerized by his stats.
Alvarez is one of the most clinical young finishers out there currently. He played a total of 38 matches in the Argentine league, scoring 22 goals and providing 10 assists, and seemingly has no plans to stop in the Premier League as well where he has so far scored 2 goals in 5 matches (as a substitute).
He has a phenomenal conversion rate and is a threat to any opposition. The Aguero-Esque player once scored 5 goals in a match just a few days ago. That tells a lot about how good he is.
