Top 10 youngsters in world ranked by L’Equipe includes two Premier League stars

Mason Greenwood and Bukayo Saka are the only Premier League stars in the top ten world youngsters, ranked by L’Equipe.

The French outlet’s views are highly-regarded, and few can disagree with Barcelona gem Ansu Fati coming out on top.

All players born in 2001 or after are considered with Liverpool ace Curtis Jones, Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli and Wolves star Fabio Silva also in the top 50.

Rennes ace Eduardo Camavinga is second while Ryan Gravenberch of Ajax is ranked in third place.

Manchester United star Greenwood is down in eighth, one spot ahead of Saka, who has shone for Arsenal this year.

Many believe Greenwood is the best finisher at Old Trafford with the youngster impressing in his debut season last year.

During the summer, Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "Mason is one of the best if not the best finisher I have worked with and seen.

“He is so calm. He knows where to finish if it is on the training ground, here or in his garden at home.”

Saka’s versatility has been a bonus for Gunners boss Mikel Arteta, though the man himself wants to play permanently out wide.

He previously said: “I feel like my dream was always to be a winger, to affect games, score goals and get assists. For now I’ll do the job the manager asks me to.”
