South America's production of footballing talent is quite astounding.
With traditional powerhouses Brazil and Argentina ever more supplemented by talents from the likes of Colombia, Chile and Uruguay, it is a production line that shows little sign of abating.
With Europe's major four leagues regarded as currently being the highest standard of football available it is understandable that most talented players seek to head in that direction. Wealth and fame await anyone who succeeds on those lofty stages.

It is a flow of talent that is unlikely to halt anytime soon. South American players will continue their annual migration to Europe as they have done for many years now.
So, among all the talent that is set to arrive, who are the best 15 players yet to leave South America?
