Zeki Celik – Lille
Started from the bottom now he’s a first-choice full back for Lille. You couldn’t make this story up. Celik was playing in the Turkish second tier last term. He’s now one of the most in-form fullbacks in Ligue 1. The 21-year-old provided an assist in the 2-2 draw against Lyon and put on an impressive display in the 1-0 away win over Montpellier on Tuesday. The Turkey international has started every single game for the French outfit this season.
Ilkay Gundogan – Manchester City
Gundogan has been in impressive form since returning from injury. He put on a man of the match display and scored in the 3-1 win over Bournemouth over the weekend.
Enes Unal – Valladolid
It was great to see Enes get his name back on the scoresheet after a barren patch. Unfortunately, his loan side ended up losing 4-2. Hopefully, it will be the first of many more for the young Turk. The 21-year-old has three goals in 10 appearances for the La Liga outfit this term.
Cengiz Under – Roma
The boy wonder struck again over the weekend. Another long range goal to add to a growing collection of stunning shots from outside the box. The ball was struck so cleanly it did not even give Inter keeper Handanovic time to move. The game ended in a 2-2 draw. Cengiz now has five goals and four assists in all competitions this season. The 21-year-old is starting to attract interest from across Europe. It looks like the Giallorossi will have a fight on their hands to keep him on at the club.

Okay Yokuslu – Celta Vigo
Okay is starting to make a name for himself at Celta. He was excellent in the 2-0 win over Huesca over the weekend. The 24-year-old won seven aerial balls, made five interceptions, three clearances and two tackles. The Turkey international bossed the midfield and also helped keep possession making the highest number of passes (63) at an 84 percent accuracy.
