Liverpool pair Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho are among the most eye-catching names on the Golden Boy 2022 shortlist.
The annual award is given to a top-tier player in Europe under the age of 21 for their performances over a calendar year.
There were 10 nominees to the 100-man shortlist from the Premier League, with Manchester United duo Anthony Elanga and Amad Diallo also making the cut.

10 Prem stars on the list
Harvey Elliott, Fabio Carvalho (Liverpool), Anthony Elanga, Amad Diallo (Manchester United), Fabio Silva, Ki-Jana Hoever (Wolves), Pape Sarr (Tottenham), Yan Couto (Manchester City), Kacper Kozlowski (Brighton), Joe Gelhardt (Leeds).
But there was no representation from traditional English heavyweights Arsenal or Chelsea.
Wolves had two players nominated, with £35m signing Fabio Silva and Dutch defender Ki-Jana Hoever on the list.
Promising talents in Tottenham’s Pape Matar Sarr and Manchester City’s Yan Couto, who spent last season on loan at Metz and Braga respectively, were named as well.
Teenage Brighton midfielder Kacper Kozlowski and Leeds forward Joe Gelhardt completed the English-based players on the list.
Barcelona wonderkid Pedri won the award last year after an astonishing 12 months for club and country.
Although Pedri was nominated again, traditionally a new winner is named every year.
A trio of midfielders in Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, Real Madrid’s Eduardo Camavinga and new Bayern Munich signing from Ajax, Ryan Gravenberch are among the favourites for this year’s gong.
