Jesurun Rak-Sakyi: Crystal Palace's teenage goal machine who Chelsea let go

 The 19-year-old has been starring in English youth football over the past year, with top-flight clubs from around Europe now keen to take him on loan

It is a story that has been heard time and time again among football fans: the academy player who was released because they were too small, only for them to move on and make it to the top elsewhere.

And it is a path that Crystal Palace teenager Jesurun Rak-Sakyi is hoping to follow, with the early signs encouraging for the forward as he aims for his true first-team breakout.

One of the stars of English youth football over the past two seasons, Rak-Sakyi has racked up 35 direct goal contributions (20 goals, 15 assists) in 39 appearances across age-groups ranging from Under-18s to U23s.
