THERE are ten representatives from the Premier League on the 100 player Golden Boy 2022 shortlist.
The award is handed out to Europe's brightest prospect and last year was scooped up by Barcelona wonderkid Pedri.
And this time round there are ten Prem wonderkids going for the award, representing seven clubs.
Liverpool pair Harvey Elliott and new signing Fabio Carvalho – both of whom came through the ranks at Fulham – are in contention.
Carvalho scored ten goals and produced eight assists to help Fulham into the Premier League while Elliott's promising-looking season was curtailed by a nasty ankle injury.
Another who has impressed away from the Premier League is Tottenham's Pape Matar Sarr.

Sarr is one of two Premier League African players on the shortlist with Manchester United's Amad Diallo the other.
The youngster failed to break into the first-team at Old Trafford this year but did impress on loan at Rangers – helping Giovani van Bronkhorst's side win the Scottish Cup.
