Albania

Having initially joined the development squad in September 2020, creative midfielder Mehmeti has since burst into the first-team picture where he featured 29 times in the Championship last term.

With time at Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur youth teams, Anis joined Norwich City in July 2017 where he was a regular in their under-18 squad. 18 appearances in his debut season led to under-23 appearances, playing alongside the likes of Max Aarons, before he scored three in 14 in 2018/19.

Following this, he joined non-league Woodford Town where he scored twice in 14 in the Essex Senior League during the 2019/20 season.

The 20-year-old made his Chairboys debut as a substitute against Millwall in October 2020, earning his first start shortly after against former European Champions Nottingham Forest. His first goal came with the late equaliser against Queens Park Rangers in December, before scoring the first in the 3-2 win away at Huddersfield Town. Emerging as a regular, he dispatched the first-half penalty against Luton Town as this breakthrough season warranted the Young Player of the Year award.

Posing an exciting threat from a typically-advanced midfield role, he has also gained international recognition where he represented Albania’s under-19s in 2019 and earned a call up to the under-21 side in May 2021 where he scored a penalty in a 3-0 European Under-21 Championship qualifier win over Andorra.
