Scout report: Highly sought after Talleres striker Nahuel Bustos

By Tom Robinson

Arsene Wenger once asserted that “South America is the only continent to develop strikers today”, and the Argentinian Primera has always proved to be a great testing ground for young forwards, be it local prospects or highly-rated talents from across the region.

Arguably the best young striker in the division last season was Nahuel Bustos, who scored 9 goals in 20 league appearances for Talleres. Unsurprisingly, this has caught the attention of a number of top clubs looking for the next potential striking sensation to emerge from Argentina.

The Cordoba-born forward made his debut way back in 2016, in a brief cameo against Chacarita, but started making waves when he scored 4 goals in 3 games at the 2018 U20 Libertadores. Bustos continued that momentum with an impressive 5 goals in 11 appearances for the Talleres senior side that season.
