In my humble opinion, Marco Verratti will become one of the most prominent midfielders in Europe over the next decade.
His move to Paris St Germain from Pescara largely went under the radar with the Parisians signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva at the same time, but acquiring Italy's heir apparent to Andrea Pirlo for just €12 million was arguably their shrewdest bit of business.
The comparisons between Verratti and Pirlo are inevitable if not a little misguided. Both are deep-lying playmakers used to dictate games, but whereas the Juventus skipper strolls about in a regal manner, Verratti is smaller, quicker, more dynamic and ideally suited to the Premier League tempo and tenacity.
Verratti's skill and stature reminds me of Andres Iniesta, and the 20-year-old has got everything about him to become one of the best around.
There have been suggestions Verratti could return to Italy, and although PSG won't be the easiest club to purchase from, the former Pescara ace could be bought and would be a fine fit for a reshaped Chelsea.
If you've never seen this boy play, take a few moments to watch him against Chelsea in a friendly last summer. Very nice player.
