This is the player who got Chelsea in such hot water for allegedly illegally inducing him to join them.
Although he has yet to really break out, the risk Chelsea took to sign Kakuta should serve as an indication as to how promising this player really is.
Game time is always going to be difficult for a young player to come by, especially at a club like Chelsea. Now at 20 years old, this is the year that people will expect Kakuta to begin to show some real progress.
Owen Coyle has a history of getting the best out of his players, and will likely give Kakuta plenty of games to prove himself.
His first test might come against Manchester United, and if Kakuta can hold his own against the Champions, than expect people to start taking some serious notice of the young Frenchman.
