It is time! The Africa Cup of Nations is right around the corner and what better way to get in the mood than by looking at some of the most entertaining players to watch. There are a ton of stars, lots of up and coming talent and, when it's all said and done, there will almost certainly be players who will earn moves to bigger, more prominent clubs.

The superstars are already known of course. You don't need Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Edouard Mendy, Riyad Mahrez, Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang, Achraf Hakimi and the other big names explained to you. So, let's have some fun instead and look at players just below the world famous level. 

There is only but so much room for players (do not be upset if your favorite is not here) so with that said, here are fifteen players to watch at AFCON this month

1. Kamaldeen Sulemana, Ghana

The Black Stars are up! They still have the Ayew brothers, Thomas Partey is showing that he is the player Arsenal thought they signed, there is also the talented Mohammed Kudus, the ever present Daniel Amartey, Gideon Mensah and Jose Mourinho's favorite Felix Afena-Gyan. However, Kamaldeen is the one to keep your eyes on. The fleet footed Rennes winger keeps you glued to the screen. The 19 year old has superstar potential.

2. Pape Matar Sarr, Senegal

Does his name sounds familiar? It should. The Senegalese midfielder is on loan at Metz and was linked to a ton of clubs in the summer, eventually signing with Tottenham before being loaned right back to Metz. Antonio Conte will not be the only one watching with eager eyes, the 19 year old is one of the many talented players in the Senegal squad. 

3. Chidera Ejuke, Nigeria

Nigeria, what a country. They have already had drama, firing their coach, losing players to injury and fracas. Emmanuel Dennis, Victor Osimhen, Leon Balogun and Shehu Abdullahi were released from selection and replaced by Semi Ajayi, Tyronne Ebuehi, Peter Olayinka and Henry Onyekuru. In Napoli's Osimhen in particular, Nigeria boasts one of the best attacking options not just in Africa, but in the whole world. But he is missing due to injury and COVID. Despite the loss of talent though, Nigeria remain one of the favorites to win the tournament. You could pick Wilfred Ndidi, Zaidu Sanusi, Samuel Chukwueze, Kelechi Iheanacho, Joe Aribo  or Moses Simon to watch but Chidera Ejuke is the one. The fleet footed winger plays his club ball at CSKA Moscow and has an entire bag of tricks and current interim manager Augustine Eguavoen named dropped Chidera as a player with tremendous potential. This tournament is where he can announce to the world, I am here.

4. Hannibal Mejbri, Tunisia

Another talent and head scratcher of a choice but stay with me. Tunisia are another top team in the tournament and whether it's Arsenal's Omar Rekik, Koln's Ellyes Skhiri, Saint-Étienne's Wahbi Khazri, or Al Arabi Youssef Msakni there's plenty of talent to keep an eye out for, but it is the Manchester United talent that is picked. Hannibal showed what he is about in the Arab Cup, and while he is yet to fully play for United's senior team, interim manager Ralf Rangnick has spoken highly of the young talent.
