Alphonso Davies

40

Alphonso Davies

Club: Bayern Munich
Country: Canada
Age: 18
Position: Forward

With Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben now retired, this could be the year Alphonso adds some buzz back to Bayern’s attack!

39

Ferran Torres

Club: Valencia
Country: Spain
Age: 19
Position: Forward

A firm fixture in Valencia’s frontline, it won’t be long before this zippy winger’s flying up the flank for Spain on the regs!

Ferran Torres

38

Christopher Nkunku

Club: RB Leipzig
Country: France
Age: 21
Position: Midfielder

Leipzig’s new signing is a driver. No, we’re not talking Lewis Hamilton. We’re talking a box-to-box midfield motor on the ball!

37

Christian Fruchtl

Club: Bayern Munich
Country: Germany
Age: 19
Position: Keeper

Yeah, Manuel Neuer is great, but trust us when we say there is life after him – Fruchtl is 6ft 4in and their homegrown hero!

Christian Fruchtl
Dominik Szoboszlai

36

Dominik Szoboszlai

Club: RB Salzburg
Country: Hungary
Age: 18
Position: Midfielder

The big clubs have been circling and it’s no surprise –midfield dynamo Dom could be Hungary’s best player since ledge goalscorer Ferenc Puskás!

35

Alban Lafont

Club: Nantes (on loan from Fiorentina)
Country: France
Age: 20
Position: Keeper

Look young and hard, readers, because you may be looking at France’s next No.1. Lafont is a shot-stopping sweeper keeper with ace distribution!

Ibrahima Konaté

34

Ibrahima Konaté

Club: RB Leipzig
Country: France
Age: 20
Position: Centre-back

Leipzig think so much of Konaté, they offered him a new long-term deal last season – and he signed. He’s a tactically switched-on centre-back like VVD!

33

Morgan Gibbs-White

Club: Wolves
Country: England
Age: 19
Position: Attacking midfielder

MGW has represented England at every youth level and played more than 50 senior games for Wolves – and he’s still a teenager. He’s heading for the very top!

Morgan Gibbs-White

32

Carles Alena

Club: Barcelona
Country: Spain
Age: 21
Position: Midfielder

Learning his trade at Barca’s famous La Masia academy, Alena is the Catalan giants’ next-best thing, so much so that they slapped a £75m release clause on his name!

31

Federico Chiesa

Club: Fiorentina
Country: Italy
Age: 21
Position: Forward

Feds is one of the first names on Fiorentina’s team sheets these days – he played 34 games last season, scoring six and grabbing three assists. A decent start for a youngster!
