WEEKLY SOCCER CARDS INVESTMENT OPINION – JANUARY 28, 2021 – Ryan Gravenberch

The Snake. The Contortionist. The new Paul Pogba. Or was it Zinedine Zidane? The plaudits have been nonstop over the past few months for Dutch starlet Ryan Gravenberch, leading him to be linked to some of Europe's biggest clubs, including his beloved Barcelona. Gravenberch is the latest player to come off of the talent conveyor belt that is the Ajax Academy. He broke records in September 2018 when he became the youngest debutant in the history of the club at 16 years and 130 days old. The player whose record he broke? One by the name of Clarence Seedorf…you know, the only player in the history of the world to win the Champions League with three different clubs. And this is Ajax, the club with a history of producing and breaking through young players including Cruyff, Van Basten, Bergkamp and Davids amongst others. That is some football pedigree.

 

It was Gravenberch's tall build that drew initial comparisons to Pogba, but it is really his technique and ability with the ball at his feet that have made them stick. The six foot tall midfielder has a similar languid style and a rare ability to use his extended frame to snake past players while linking together uncommon combinations with his teammates.  Gravenberch's performances have helped propel the Amsterdam club to the top of the Eredivisie in 2020/21. He even opened the scoring against arch-rivals Feyernoord in the recent 'Klassieker", which Ajax would go on to win to extend its lead at the top. He is already being linked with moves away from the Amsterdam Arena, and like Frenkie de Jong and Sergio Dest before him, it appears the admiration from the Catalan club is mutual. Given he is represented by none other than Mino Raiola, European football's super-agent, it's likely a big move in the future is in the cards.

When it comes to the hobby, now is the time to snap up a variety of cards while he is still in his rookie (trading card) season.

 

Happy hunting!
