    Derrick Kakooza

    The Police FC youngster made his name in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Mauritania, where he emerged as the top scorer with five goals.
     
    Despite Uganda debuting in the competition, Kakooza was always a dependable goalscorer for his side that eventually lost in the final and his performances at club level and at the national level, should convince him to move for a new challenge.
  3. Yunus Ssentamu of Vipers SC.

    The right-footed star emerged as the Premier League's top scorer with 16 goals and four assists, and his performances suggest he is a player who is ready to test his ability in a different environment.
     
    The former AS Vita star could choose to remain in Uganda by signing for either Express FC or Kampala Capital City Authority {KCCA FC], or he could choose to move to a foreign league after an outstanding season with Vipers SC.

    Mucureezi and Sentamu scored a combined 27 goals for the Venoms in the season that was canceled, and even though he did not win the Premier League title, the Ugandan star had a good individual campaign.
     
    Since he has played for Vipers' local rivals KCCA and Mbarara City, a move abroad is what the attacking midfielder should consider in order to have a taste of a different league.
  5. Vipers SC midfielder Bobosi Byaruhanga.

    The Vipers midfielder was among the key players for the Premier League side, and was part of the U20 Afcon contingent. He made his senior national team debut against South Africa in a recent friendly.
     
    Given his great passing abilities, leadership skills despite his age, and individual hard work on the pitch, Byaruhanga is seen as one of the greatest talents expected to shine in the future, and a move is advisable at this stage.
  6. Gavin Kizito of SC Villa vs BUL FC.

    The SC Villa shone with Uganda in the Mauritania U21 Afcon finals and is part of the team in the Cecafa U23 Championship in Ethiopia.
     
    His inclusion for national duty and his performances for the Jogoos mean the coaches have trust in his abilities. Since he has made a name at both levels, he should consider a move to a bigger Ugandan club or venture into a foreign league next season.
