Lucas Silva has been slapped with the 'next big thing' tag after arriving from Cruzeiro in an £11.5 million move in January. Since then, the 22-year-old has failed to make a huge dent on the first team, but his potential is certainly there. He falls into the Jese category of waiting for injuries before he can make a real mark on the first team, with so many exquisite players making it exceedingly difficult for talent to breakthrough. He's a long-term player, not an immediate starter.
