Obviously still extremely early in their careers, but who has impressed you so far?
Belardi Everyone else is wrong.
Seriously though you're asking 2 questions here who is your favourite and who has impressed you the most. I like Torres from Valencia from the little I've seen of him. Although I'm sure there are plenty of better prospects.
Also Piggy Ruig is my favourite Barca prospect right now.
Jadon Sancho has been living up to the hype so far.
For french players, clearly the choice is Amine Gouiri, fantastic striker. Injured for the year though so maybe he's lost a year of development in capital years. We'll see how he comes back from it.
Maxence Caqueret (Lyon as well) is an amazing DM prospect.
Internationally, Vinicius Jr seems like quite a player. Jadon Sancho, Moise Kean, Ryan Sessegnon are the most advanced prospects. A lot can change both ways though.
All my favorite prospects are Americans, so I'd only be naming American players.
Of non-Americans, Jadon Sancho. I've watched him play a lot, so I feel like I could comment well on his game. I don't think he has eventual Ballon D'Or talent, but he's really good already and a smart footballer. I could see him being in the 5-15 range of world footballers for 10 years. I haven't seen that much of Sergio Gomez. I would've liked to see him play more, but I don't think he's the same level of talent as Sancho. I think he should be good enough to play for a big team, but more as a complimentary player.
Of non-Americans and non-Dortmund players, most of those high-profile English kids are really good. A year ago they played us in the QF's at the Sub17 World Cup and I thought we were the second best team in the tournament, but England destroyed us. It wasn't even close. They went on to win the final.
Favourite : Alphonso Davies
Impressed: Don't watch enough of the other leagues for a truly educated opinion , but Sandro Tonali is gunna be pretty damn good , I think. Hope Roma gets him.
