5 Indian Youngsters to Look Out for in Season 6 of the Indian Super League

The sixth season of the Indian Super League is all set to kick-off this weekend and fans are excited to witness the plethora of young talent on display in the much hyped club competition in India.


With some incredible foreign talent on display in the league, today we take a look at the top Indian youngsters this season....

5. Suresh Singh Wangjam - Bengaluru FC

Indian Super League champions Bengaluru FC signed speciality central-midfielder Suresh Singh Wangjam from Indian Arrows in order to bolster their central midfield with a mixture of experience and youth.


19-year-old Suresh has already scored three goals in three appearances for the Bengaluru B side and his performances could see him more involved in the A team for the upcoming Indian Super League campaign.

4. Narender Gahlot - Jamshedpur FC

One of the then Under-17 stars who missed out on the U-17 FIFA World Cup in India due to an injury, Narender Gehlot made his senior team debut in the Hero Intercontinental Cup.


His best performance in the Blue shirt came against Syria in the Hero Intercontinental Cup. After leading India's U-18 team to glory in the SAFF U-18 championships, Narender has been odds on favourite to be named as one of the rising star defenders of the country.


At Jamshedpur FC, the 18-year-old star will team up with the experienced Tiri in central defence and will hope to come up with impressive performances.

3. Amarjit Singh Kiyam - Jamshedpur FC

Former captain of the Indian Under-17 football team which hosted the FIFA U-17 World Cup, 18-year-old Amarjit Singh Kiyam already has a wealth of experience under his belt for this season's Indian Super League.


Amarjit will represent Jamshedpur FC in the ISL this season where he will have the opportunity to develop and add some flair to his game under the leadership of Antonio Irionda. 


Moreover, playing alongside an experienced campaigner like Memo would do a world of good to Amarjit.


Amarjit won't be able to start the season because as he is still recovering from a fractured hand that he suffered during a training session with the national team, but he is definitely one to look out for during the course of the season.

2. Rahul Kannoly Praveen - Kerala Blasters

Rahul KP has never ceased to amaze fans with his incredible footwork on the ball as well as his creativity in decision making on the field of play.


The 19-year-old is very versatile and can occupy any position in the attacking half. At Kerala Blasters, one thing is for sure, Eelco Schattorie will bring out the best from Rahul.


With teammates like Sergio Cidoncha, Sahal Abdul Samad and Bartholomew Ogbeche, Rahul will definitely flourish and will be one of the most special youngsters to look out for this season in the Indian Super League.

1. Anwar Ali - Mumbai City FC

One of the fewest top quality young defenders in Indian football at the moment, 19-year-old Anwar Ali has been making a name for himself since his appearance for the national team in the Under-17 FIFA World Cup in India.


Ali had a mixed 2018-19 season while playing for the Indian Arrows but this season he has made the move to the Indian Super League with Mumbai City FC and will hope to create an impact in his bid to make the move to the Indian national team's senior squad.
