Arsenal and Man United starlets named on Golden Boy 2015 shortlist

The shortlist for the 2015 Golden Boy award has been released with Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Manchester United’s Anthony Martial prominently featured in the race to crown Europe’s best player under the age of 21.

Having started in 2003, the winner is voted for by a wide reaching panel of journalists from several leading news outlets, including The Times.

And it seems that this year’s list has a few Premier League entries as Bellerin and Martial are joined by the likes of Tottenham’s Dele Alli, Jordon Ibe of Liverpool, Aston Villa’s Adama Traore and Man United full-back Luke Shaw.
