  • The 10 Best Premier League Wonderkids to Watch Out for in 2017

The Premier League attracts some of the best talent the world has to offer. Many legends have started their careers off in the Premier League as relatively unknown newcomers; Beckham, Ronaldo, Pique and Pogba to name a few... But, who's on the path to world class status this year?

Have a read of our 10 Best Premier League Wonderkids to keep your eye on for the rest of 2017, who are destined for big things:

10. Axel Tuanzebe (Manchester United)

Already the Captain of the Under-18 squad, Tuanzebe has the skills to go all the way to the top. The last player to be made Captain of the Under-18s in their first season was none other that your favourite SkySports pundit Gary Neville.

Currently playing for the England Under-19s, but born in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Keep your eye on him this season as the Centre Back may just break into the first team at some stage.

9. Marcus Edwards (Tottenham Hotspur)

The 18 year old Attacking Midfielder has already had one appearance for Spurs' first team, coming on as a sub against Gillingham for the last 15 minutes.

Pochettino compared Edwards to a young Lionel Messi due to his low centre of gravity and ability to beat a man. But, can he live up to these expectations? 2017 sure will be an interesting one for him.

8. Ola Aina (Chelsea)

Already finding himself on the bench regularly under Conte, the 20 year old Right Back is waiting for a good chance to prove himself.

He has represented England since the Under-16 squad, and has aspirations for becoming one of the big stars of the league.

7. Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Arsenal)

Already proven in playing Arsenal's fast paced attacking style football, Matland-Niles is one to look out for.

He was loaned out last season to Ipswich for some much needed experience, and now back with the first squad is waiting for his moment to shine. Given the chance be Wenger, that is...

6. Thibaud Verlinden (Stoke City)

Perhaps one of the less well-known players on the list, the Belgian national is touted to break into Stoke's first team this year.

The Left Winger came in from Standard Liege a couple of years back and has been going from strength to strength since.

Free bet with Betfair

5. Tom Davies (Everton)

Merseyside born and raised, Davies is destined for big things with Everton. He has already said he wants to be the driving force behind Everton's midfield.

A permanent fixture in the England Youth set up, Davies could really add to an already strong Everton midfield.

4. Ben Woodburn (Liverpool)

Woodburn got off to the best possible start with Liverpool first squad, scoring in the League Cup against Leeds. He became Liverpool's youngest ever scorer, piping Michael Owen who held it previously.

Klopp seems to be a manager who likes to give young blood a chance, so expect to see a lot more of young Strike this year.

3. Phil Foden (Manchester City)

A naturally gifted playmaker, who is comfortable playing anywhere in midfield. Foden is going to be a key player at City in years to come.

The 17 year old is already City's youngest Champions League player after facing Celtic last year.

2. Angel Gomes (Manchester United)

angel-gomes

The Manchester United Academy have "massive hopes" for the English Striker. He consistently plays a few years ahead of himself in their youth sides.

His father was a professional footballer, but never quite made it to stardom. The experts reckon Gomes will be an entirely different kettle of fish.

1. Harry Wilson (Liverpool)

harry-wilson

Already the youngest player ever to play for Wales, Wilson is one of the most skilful young players on this list. Equally good with both feet, and a natural eye for goal, he could soon be sticking them in for the first team week in, week out.

The Striker has just signed a new contract with Liverpool, and is hoping to follow in the footsteps of previous greats who came up through the Melwood Academy.
