first_img Chris Willock (Benfica, England U19 European Championship winner) – Another English youngster who, like Sancho, gained headlines in the summer by his decision to move abroad. A product of the Arsenal youth academy – his brother Joe is still part of the Gunners setup – the 19-year-old moved to Portuguese giants Benfica in the transfer window, signing a five-year deal. 16 16 Ademola Lookman (Everton, England U20 World Cup winner) – Another World Cup winner turning out for Everton, the pacey wide man was signed from Charlton Athletic for a fee rising to £11million in January 2017. His opportunities have been limited thus far but the promise is undoubtedly there. Lewis Cook (Bournemouth, England U20 World Cup-winning captain) – Cook was the man to captain the England Under-20s to World Cup victory in the summer – a sweet end to a campaign, which hadn’t gone well for the youngster. A product of the Leeds United academy the midfielder sealed a transfer last year to Premier League Bournemouth but he rarely featured through a combination of injury and poor form. This season he has made three appearances in the Premier League. Phil Foden (Manchester City, England U17 Euros runner up and U17 World Cup finalist) – This kid looks special and has earned rave reviews from onlookers. City manager Pep Guardiola is a huge admirer of the 17-year-old midfielder and, if he continues as he is, the future will be very bright for the midfielder. 16 16 16 Marcus Edwards (Tottenham, England U19 European Championship winner) – The 18-year-old midfielder is another Tottenham prospect with a bright future and – should Mauricio Pochettino stick around – he will likely end up as a first team member. So far the England youngster has been handed a few EFL Cup appearances but the hopes are very high. 16 16 16 Josh Onomah (Aston Villa on loan from Tottenham, England U20 World Cup winner) – Another star of the Under-20 World Cup winning team Josh Onomah joined Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa for the season to gain valuable experience. The midfielder has made six starts in the Championship and has gained plenty of plaudits. Angel Gomes (Manchester United, current England U17 and U18 international) – Capped at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-18 level the Manchester United attacking midfielder has plenty of promise. He made his Red Devils debut in the final game of last season when he came on for Wayne Rooney against Crystal Palace. He is also part of the current England U-17 World Cup. It’s an exciting time to be an England fan (as long as you completely ignore the senior team).While Gareth Southgate’s side may be sending people to sleep the youth teams are prospering.The England Under-17s have just made it to the World Cup final, fresh from finishing as runners-up in the European Championships in the summer.Additionally during the summer months the Under-21s managed to make it through to the semi-finals of the European Championships and, of course, the Under-20s beat Venezuela to win the World Cup.There are undoubtedly some remarkably talented individuals emerging through the ranks and it is hoped they can all make an impact for the senior team, and at club level, in the future.Here, talkSPORT have put together a list of some of the most exciting English prospects right now.Scroll through the gallery above to check them out. Reece Oxford (Borussia Monchengladbach on loan from West Ham, captained England at 2015 U17 Euros) – Burst onto the scene with his performance for West Ham against Arsenal as a 16-year-old but the youngster’s progress has stalled somewhat. The potential and ability is undoubtedly still there – with Oxford drawing comparisons with another West Ham youth product Rio Ferdinand – and it his hoped he will return from Germany with a far more rounded game. Tom Davies (Everton, England U21) – click right to see more – The 19-year-old central midfielder is one of the country’s brightest young stars – in part thanks to his ability to break into the Everton first team. Though things have gone slightly sour at Goodison Park this season, Ronald Koeman’s departure could kick-start Everton’s – and Davies’ – 2017/18 season. Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund, England U17 Euros finalist) – A name that suddenly came to the forefront during the summer transfer window, when he was signed by Bundesliga giants Dortmund from Manchester City, and instantly handed the number seven shirt. The 17-year-old was part of the Under-17 World Cup squad but he was recalled by his club and made his debut against Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend. 16 Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham, England U19 European Championship winner) – One of the breakout stars from last season was the Fulham youngster who made 30 appearances in all competitions – and he only turned 17 in May. Capable at left-back or left-midfield and, unsurprisingly, much is expected of the young man. Coincidentally he has a twin brother, Steven, who is also at Fulham and is part of the current England Under-17 squad who have made it to the World Cup. 16 Rhian Brewster (Liverpool, England U17 World Cup finalist) – The star of England’s semi-final win against Brazil after he bagged a hat-trick, the striker has suddenly been thrown into the spotlight. A former Chelsea academy member, the Reds’ manager Jurgen Klopp is said to have taken an instant interest in 17-year-old Brewster. Can he do the same thing in the upcoming final? Dominic Solanke (Liverpool, England U20 World Cup winner) – The star for England during their Under-20 World Cup win, the striker was named player of the tournament. Solanke then made further headlines as he decided to leave Chelsea for Liverpool in the summer. He has made a handful of appearances for Klopp’s first team primarily from the bench. Ronaldo Vieira (Leeds United, 2017 Toulon Tournament winner with England) – With a name like that, he’d better be good. The midfielder was born in Guinea-Bissau, and raised in Portugal, but he moved to England in 2011 and joined Leeds United in 2015. Now 19, the midfielder decided to play for his adopted country after being selected in the England Under-20 team that appeared at the 2017 Toulon Tournament. He has made 47 appearances for the Leeds first team. 16 16 16 Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton, England U20 World Cup winner) – The man who grabbed the winning goal in the World Cup final, the Everton youngster continues to get first team minutes for the Blues. Now turning out for the England Under-21 side big things are expected from the Toffees forward. 16 16 16 Tammy Abraham (Swansea on loan from Chelsea, reached last four of 2017 Euro U21s with England) – A striker with the world at his feet. Following a stunning season banging in goals left, right and centre for Bristol City the Chelsea youngster sealed a season-long loan to Swansea City to gain Premier League experience this season. So far the 20-year-old has grabbed four goals in nine league outings for Paul Clement’s side.last_img
