Three Brazilian Talents to Look Out For in Europe

Brazilian players come into the season riding high on a wave of optimism, after claiming their first ever football Gold medal at their own Olympics with a penalty shootout win over Germany.

This brings to an end a truly awful recent record, which featured one of the most stunning World Cup results in history, a 7-1 defeat to the Germans in the semi-final of their own competition.

Here, we take a look at some of the hottest Brazilian talents in Europe that will be eager to continue the nation’s feel good factor…

Gabriel Jesus

The 19-year-old recently completed his move to Manchester City, and will join the English club in January of 2017 for an initial fee of £27m.

Dubbed the next Neymar, he is pacey, creative and possesses immense dribbling ability to cause defenders real problems.

The Gold medallist has scored 19 goals for Palmeiras since his breakthrough into the first team, and will hope to emulate the success of Neymar by hitting the ground running for Pep Guardiola’s Sky Blues.


The Premier League has a great history of playing Brazilians and this year’s season is no different.

From Chelsea’s Willian to Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino, the division is brimming with talent, but it could be Philippe Coutinho who makes the biggest impact.

The creative force recorded 12 goals and seven assists last term and started his Premier League season off with a bang, in a 4-3 over Arsenal, netting twice.

Under Jurgen Klopp Liverpool have made great strides and should be lining up a Champions League place this term.


The Olympic winning superstar moved to Barcelona in 2013 and has lit up Europe ever since.

Neymar has formed one of the deadliest attacking trios in world football with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, a combination that scored 131 goals last season.

In three years playing for the Catalan club, the skillful star has already lifted two La Liga titles and a Champions League. At just 24-years-old, Neymar will only get better and is well on the way to becoming his nation’s leading scorer, hoping to lead his nation to glory in the Russian 2018 World Cup.

So there you have it, the three super Brazilian talents to watch as the European football season hots up.
