Scouting reports on unknown talent who could be on their way to the Premier League (Video)

A huge range of African and South American talent could be coming onto our shores this summer, but many names are unfamiliar to English fans. Here is my guide for five names to watch out for;

Sunday Mba- Warri Wolves

The young Nigerian is an attacking midfielder who possesses a lethal shot and ability to make clever runs. The 24-year-old would be a lively addition to any Premiership side, and speculation sees Arsenal leading the chase for Mba- who scored the winner in this year’s African Cup of Nations. Clubs in Germany are also tracking Mba, but contract disputes could see a move break down.

Stoppila Sunzu- TP Mazembe

The Zambian defender was close to moving to Reading in January, but a now resolved contractual dispute prevented the move. 23-year-old Sunzu has been a Zambian international since 2008, and played a key part of their 2012 triumph, scoring a penalty in the winning shoot-out. Quick, calm and very strong in the air, Sunzu could well be a name to watch out for this summer.

Christian Atsu- Porto

The 21-year-old left-winger has been a break-out sensation for Porto this campaign, and has recently broken into the Ghana first team.  His stock is set to rise and rise, and watching Premiership clubs may want to move fast, otherwise Atsu’s value could double by next season. Atsu is equally capable on either foot and has tormented Portuguese defences with his weaving runs, crossing and shooting capabilities.

Etienne Capoue- Tolouse

Capoue could be the perfect man to fill the defensive midfield void at Arsenal, and is also said to be being tracked by a number of leading English clubs. The 24-year-old has been capped by France at every level and played for current club Toluse since he was a youth in 2005. Capoue has become an important part for both club and country and formed a partnership with Moussa Sissoko, before the latter left for Newcastle. Could the two be re-united on Tyneside, or will Capoue become the heir to the throne of Alex Song?

Marquinhos- Roma

The Italian capital club are hardly a feeder club, but this teenage centre-back is a real revelation. The Brazilian has only just turned 19, but has been a key player in the Roma defence all season and is wanted by Barcelona, who are reportedly lining up a bid of 25 million Euro’s. One of two Marquinho’s at Roma, the defender is blessed with pace, strength and composure; skills which would help the Brazilian to stand out in the Premiership. It little surprise that the Catalan giants are being rivalled by Chelsea for his signature.
