#40 Marcus Edwards
Club: Tottenham Hotspur
Position: Attacking midfielder
Mauricio Pochettino is already in awe of the ability of Marcus Edwards, comparing him to the legendary Lionel Messi.
The 18-year-old prodigy has been playing for the London-based outfit since an age of eight. He debuted as a professional footballer in September 2016, after impressing his coaches during the pre-season.
The Englishman has been turning heads with his prolific dribbling. His low centre of gravity is a crucial reason why he can beat defenders with ease. Deployed as an attacking midfielder, Edwards can also operate on the flanks or in a more forward role.
It will be a tough test for Tottenham to cling on to Edwards with a host of top-notch clubs eyeing the youngster. Regardless of his decision to stay or leave, Edwards will certainly be a player who makes a difference in the future.
