After the exits of Maciej Rybus, Ariel Borysiuk, Karol Linetty, and Bartłomiej Drągowski last summer, David Kownacki has risen to the title of best Polish prospect in the Ekstraklasa. He seems to have finally put his injury woes besides him, and he’s fit and firing in Poland. Injuries have hurt his development, but he’s still only 19, and part of Poland’s recent crop of center forwards. The next step is a developmental league like Eredivisie or the Jupiler League, where fellow Polish strikers Arkadiusz Milik and Łukasz Teodorczyk have announced themselves to the world. If he stays injury free, he could be a key figure for the Biało-czerwoni.
