The shortlist for the Golden Boy award for European football's best young player has been announced, as reported by The Guardian.
The award, first set up by Italian paper Tuttosport, has now become the recognised crowning of Europe's top young talent and in the past Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney and Sergio Aguero have all won the accolade.
Last year it was given to then Liverpool star Raheem Sterling but despite being eligible he is no longer on the shortlist.
But there is still plenty of Premier League interest. Thirteen Premier League talents have been shortlisted including those from Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Aston Villa.
Meanwhile Mario Pasalic of Monaco, Adnan Januzaj of Borussia Dortmund and Jason Denayer of Galatasaray are also nominated and are currently on loan from Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City respectively.
