Emre Tezgel is a product of the Stoke City youth academy. He is a member of England U-17, a very interesting team with many exciting talents such as Jobe Bellingham, Kobbie Mainoo, Josh Feeney, Tommy Setford, Amario Cozier-Duberry, and Jamie Donley. Emre has been in fantastic form for Stoke youth this season – so far he scored 7 goals in just 4 games in the Premier League U-18 and also scored his first-ever goal in the Premier League U-23.


“He’s a Harry Kane-type centre-forward. That gets bandied about but his movement is good, he can hold the ball up and he is decent in the air. His main attribute, though, is his finishing and that’s what good centre-forwards have. He plays like a seasoned pro, pulling off at an angle, giving little nudges to the centre-back and making space. It’s great to have that bank of knowledge already at his age.”

(Gareth Owen – Stoke’s academy director)
