While most sports fans in the United States gear up for football in the fall, Europeans focus on the start of another club soccer season. Below are some of the young soccer stars that are expected to have an impact in the coming year.

Pictured Card: 2019-20 Panini Chronicles Prestige #236
Raw eBay Buy It Now: $5
After scoring 3 goals in 6 appearances for the Copa América champions Argentina, Martinez heads into the 2021-22 club season with plenty of momentum. In addition, with former Inter front man, Romelu Lukaku, departing to Chelsea, Martinez will be the offensive focal point for a team that is favored to win Serie A and that should reach the knockout stage of the Champions League.
At $5, the pictured Chronicles card is well within most collecting budgets. If you are looking for something with a slightly lower print run, focus on the Xtra Points colored versions of this card. I like the blue, which can usually be found raw for under $20 on eBay.
