With John Terry on his last legs and Jose Mourinho looking to freshen things up, Omeruo is well on the path to being the next big thing from Africa. ‘The way he is going, he will captain the national team,’ Obuh predicts.

Christian Atsu, Chelsea/Ghana
It took former Chelsea and Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas 20 minutes of seeing him train to sign Christian Atsu while still in charge of Porto. And if further validation was required of his huge talent, YouTube offers some scintillating skills and goals including a fizzing effort from the top of the box after cutting infield for the last of Ghana’s six first-leg goals against Egypt in qualifying.

It was a goal that epitomized everything about Atsu: quick thinking; close control; pace; balance; and a confident, precise finish.

Ghanaian journalist Michael Oti Adjei can’t speak highly enough of the 22-year-old: ‘After he tore Malawi apart in a 2013 Nations Cup qualifier, the feeling in the whole stadium was that we had witnessed the next Abedi Pele, the next great thing in Ghana football.

‘I am convinced he is potentially not just a future Ghana great but a future African great. He is that good.’ It explains why Chelsea have moved quickly to secure his services, although like Omeruo, he has been sent out on loan, anchoring the attack for Vitesse Arnheim.

Mohammed Salah, Chelsea/Egypt
It might be coincidence that the three brightest and most promising stars of the African continent are signed up to Chelsea. Then again, it could be that the Chelsea scouting department are more than earning their keep.

While Omeruo and Atsu have yet to pull on the Chelsea blue in competition, Salah, a late recruit, has not only done so but excelled. Fast of feet and thought and blessed with the ability to finish with some ease, Salah has already announced himself to the world with some memorable European nights on the wing for former club FC Basel. Not that it was something unfamiliar to him. Hitting 16 goals in 27 international appearances, including finishing as joint top scorer in the African World Cup qualifying for 2014, speaks to the 21-year-old’s abilities.

Salah has represented Egypt at U20 and U23 levels and was voted Most Promising Talent by CAF in 2012.

Honorable Mention: Ogenyi Onazi, Lazio/Nigeria
Lazio’s Ogenyi Onazi is as tenacious as they come in midfield. His heel-snapping style would draw comparison with former Italy international Gennaro Gattuso and also provides the platform that allows John Mikel Obi to play with unrestrained freedom for Nigeria.

It is doubtful how much longer Onazi will remain with the Italian club, especially if he goes on to have a good World Cup.
