All managers crave finding that needle in the haystack; a player no one has heard of but becomes something special. On PES 2019 Master League they are very difficult to find, with a lot of unlicensed and made-up teams giving you no idea where to start. RealSport is on hand to take you through the best hidden gems on the game.
What is a hidden gem?
These are players you may not be familiar with as they are all aged in their teens. They all have an OPR (overall points rating) of at least 74, and the potential to become useful talents on Master League. We have also marked their estimated development (DEV), which is their expected growth over the next three years. Be sure to play these youngsters as much as possible and regularly use them in training to maximise their potential.

The right midfielder was a regular for Trabzonspor last season, racking up 32 appearances with six assists and three goals. If and when he makes his bow for the national team, he will have played at every age group from U14 to senior team.
On PES 2019, Omur’s qualities of 90 unwavering balance, 84 dribbling and 83 speed give him a 76 OPR. This should rise to 81 in the next three years, so you should look to spend around £10 million on bringing him to your club with a salary of £1.1 million.
