From Arsenal’s Hale End to Chelsea’s Cobham, Premier League academies from across the country continue to produce some of the brightest talents in world football. Players such as Mason Mount, Phil Foden and Trent Alexander-Arnold have all emerged into superstardom in recent years, and today we are looking at the 5 young players you should watch out for in the new Premier League season.

The youngest player to ever play in the Premier League at 16 years and 30 days – Harvey Elliott – is one of the most exciting talents to watch out for this season. The left-footed winger enjoyed a stellar loan spell at Blackburn last year, where he finished with 7 goals and 11 assists, and the 18-year-old could play a massive role for Liverpool this season in their bid to reclaim the Premier League title.

4. Emile Smith Rowe (Arsenal)

One of the few – if not only – bright sparks in Arsenal’s opening day defeat to Brentford was Emile Smith Rowe. The dynamic midfielder was the only player looking to constantly push the Gunners up the pitch with the ball and finished the game with 12 progressive passes and 5 progressive carries. Smith Rowe was the catalyst for Arsenal’s upturn in form last season, and after being awarded a new contract and the fabled number 10 shirt over the summer, the Englishman could be one of the breakout stars of the new Premier League season.

3. Billy Gilmour (Norwich City)

After winning the Champions League in May and putting in a Man of the Match performance against England in Euro 2020, Billy Gilmour joins Norwich City on loan from Chelsea for the new season. Despite his slight frame, Gilmour is already one of the best young midfielders in the league due to his excellent passing range and ability on the ball, and playing in a possession-based system at Carrow Road could be the perfect place for his development.

2. Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)

Ever since becoming the youngest player to feature for Manchester United in the Champions League, Mason Greenwood has always been billed as the next big thing at Old Trafford. The 19-year-old has immense pace and power, can play anywhere across the front three and, crucially, is one of the fiercest ball-strikers in world football. Greenwood has already scored 30 goals for the club in all competitions, and this could be the season where the 19-year-old bursts onto the scene to become one of the best young players in the world.
