The list of candidates for Europe’s Golden Boy award, given to the best European player under the age of 21, was released on Monday. Some already well-known players are on this year’s list of 39 contenders, including: Thibaut Courtois (Atletico Madrid), Coutinho (Inter), Julian Draxler (Schalke 04), Stephan El Shaarawy (AC Milan), Christian Eriksen (Ajax), Isco (Malaga), Erik Lamela (AS Roma), Iker Muniain (Athletic Bilbao), Alex Oxlade Chamberlain (Arsenal), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Raphael Varane (Real Madrid), Paul Pogba (Juventus), Marco Verratti (PSG), and last year’s winner, Mario Gotze (Borussia Dortmund).
