17. Lamine Yamal


A great talent from La Masia who stands out for his daring dribbling

Lamine Yamal arrived at FC Barcelona at the age of 7 from his local club CF La Torreta. At La Masia he raced through the age categories quicker than any other player of his generation. 

The forward had barely started playing for the U19s when he began training with the first team at the request of coach Xavi Hernández. In April 2023 he made his debut for the first team aged just 15 years, 9 months and 16 days in a 4-0 win against Real Betis, becoming the youngest player ever to represent Barça. 

After an excellent 2022/23 campaign, Lamine continued with first team for preseason in 2023/24 and despite being registered with the B squad, the forward has become a regular presence in the first team squad under coach Xavi Hernandez. 

Lamine Yamal stands out for his ability to take players on, create chances and for his versatility as he can play as a striker, attacking midfielder or on the right wing.
