Barcelona forward Ansu Fati has been included on the 20-man shortlist for the 2019 Golden Boy award.

The 16-year-old has made an impact for the Spanish champions this season, coming into the team and breaking records left, right and centre.

His performances have also seen him called into the Spain Under-21 squad for their Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro on Tuesday.

Ansu is on the list along with other young stars such as 2018 winner Matthijs de Ligt, Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix and Real Madrid’s Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr.

The award is handed out to the best Under-21 player and is due to be announced on December 16 in Turin.
