πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡² Leicester's new fox in the box: Is the Premier League ready for Patson Daka?

Zambian hotshot Patson Daka has been scoring goals for fun in Austria and soon we'll be able to see him exhibit his considerable talents in the Premier League.

It's been a rapid rise for Chipolopolo's main man. If you consider that he's still only 22, the sky is the limit.

⚡️ Style of play

Daka's playing style revolves around his physical attributes of searing pace, acceleration over short distances and great agility. That agility and anticipation allow him to sniff out half chances and pounce on loose balls before defenders are alive to the danger. An instinctive finisher, Daka is a poacher in the true sense of the word. 

With a supply line that contains James Maddison, Youri Tielemans and even Kelechi Iheanacho behind him, Patson Daka is one to watch in 2021-22. Some sceptical fans have asked whether Patson Daka is ready for the Premier League, but perhaps they should be asking whether the Premier League is ready for Patson Daka.
