CaughtOffside guesses who the Premier League’s best young player will be.
The CaughtOffside team discuss who the best young player in the Premier League will be.
James Ward-Prowse ought to receive more opportunities given the astonishing exodus at Southampton, while Calum Chambers at Arsenal has looked a similarly excellent Saints’ youth product. If I’m ignoring the established young stars such as Raheem Sterling and Luke Shaw, I think John Stones at Everton will go on to become a top class centre back after a hugely encouraging debut season.
Harry Kane. At 21-years-old the striker is on the cusp of still being considered a young player and although relatively well known, has never truly proven himself at Tottenham Hotspur – but I believe this will be the Englishman’s time to shine.
Raheem Sterling – Has improved massively year after year so far. If he does so again he will rank among the league’s best players.
James Ward-Prowse. Following Southampton’s mass exodus, the 19-year-old will step up and become the next English starlet to shine at St Mary’s. He has an excellent range of passing and his whipped set-pieces are potentially deadly.
Calum Chambers – The former Southampton man looks the part and if Arsene Wenger fails to secure a back-up centre-back or a defensively minded midfielder than I can see the Arsenal signing coming to the fore.
Jack Grealish. He’s Aston Villa’s new bright hope and is set for a big future in the game. A confident dribbler and raw talent, he spent the previous campaign on loan with Notts County where he played a pivotal role in keeping them up in League One, and he will be expected to play a role in Paul Lambert’s plans this term.
Arsenal’s Serge Gnabry made a few appearances last season and looked a very exciting talent. If he goes out on loan to another Premier League club, I’d expect him to make a big impact playing regularly this year.
Ben Davies will do well at Spurs, and think Bruno Zuculini might get more chances than assumed at City. Raheem Sterling though is probably the best teenager on the planet, and he’ll continue his meteoric rise.
