Lech Poznan are a club which can boast about their fans, which are some of the best in the world, their great former players such as Bayern Munich Star, Robert Lewandowski, their vast number of league and cup titles and their youth academy which is considered to be the best in the country. This academy has seen many players climb the youth ranks to eventually play for the senior sides and the latest name to do this is Polish wonderkid, Dawid Kownacki.
The 20 year old has been attracting attention from some of Europes elite with his performance this season for the side in which he has been at since a young boy. His return of 12 goals in 13 starts has been nothing short of remarkable and has lead him to be dubbed by many as ‘The New Robert Lewandowski’. While this could be seen as somewhat overdramatic it is easy to see why he has been labelled this with the talent he has at disposal.
Standing at over 6ft tall, just 1 inch smaller than Lewandowski, Kownacki has actually been in the Senior game for a few years. He made his professional debut at just 16 years old coming off the bench in a league game against Wisla Krakow and since then he has gone onto make a total of 86 league appearances for his side scoring just 21 but considering he has started just 41 of those games it is a tremendous return for someone who is still only 20 years old.
Kownacki is a player who is very mobile in the way he plays and for someone who is tall he is a great dribbler on the ball. To top it all off the boy knows how to finish and it clearly shows with some of the goals he has scored this year which has made clubs try and tempt him away from Lech Poznan. With so many interested it would be so hard for his side to keep hold of him for much longer so it is a case of where does the 20 year old go from here? I believe the only way is up for this young talent and with his ability he will probably go on to become a big name in the world of football.
