England Jersey

We take a look at three players Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea could look at as their scouts ascend on an elite international U17 tournament.

England U17s managed by esteemed coach John Peacock are currently away in Portugal taking part in a competition designed for the top countries as a warm-up prior to the Elite Round Qualifiers starting in March.

England have already beaten a highly-rated Dutch side, and play Portugal today and then lastly Germany.

The top clubs in England have sent their scouts, report The Mail to watch the tournament to hopefully spot some young talent which could go on to bear fruit in the future.

We take a look at three players in particular the big Premier League trio should keep an eye out for in the upcoming games.

Taylor Moore - RC Lens - England

The outstanding inclusion in the England under-17 side due to the fact, he is the only player in the squad currently plying his trade outside of the England. And in fact will become the first ever player to be solely abroad and win a cap for the England youth side.

A central-midfielder by trade, he is renowned for his athleticism, hard-working attitude and flawless passing ability. He is marked for a big future in France and with Lens becoming one of the fastest growing French domestic sides thanks to their rich owner, it's an exciting place to be.

He will be one to keep an eye on, especially as he is relatively unknown and will be looking to impress onlookers.

Timo Werner - Stuttgart - Germany

If you don't know who Werner is now, then you won't need to wait long because this kid is the real deal. Already an integral part of Bundesliga side Stuttgart's first-team, he has been a shining light in an otherwise poor season.

He has scored four, and created four goals this season in 20 appearances, which is a staggering return for such a young winger.

He is learning all the time, however, Premier League clubs would be best advised to move quickly on this talent before his price tag becomes eye-watering.

Idrisa Sambu - FC Porto - Portugal

15-year-old Idrisa is one of the youngest players from the four major countries taking part, and incredibly one of the more dangerous players to look out for.

He was hailed as one of the best players at the Nike Tournament 2013, where he bagged three goals, showing off his lightening pace and deft touch. He made the controversial move from Sporting Lisbon to FC Porto last season, leaving the two clubs locked in an off the pitch rage.

Despite the recent move, Premier League clubs are still likely to be tracking the young attacking player due to his exciting and frightening potential.
