Fifty Hottest Prospects In English Football: Chelsea's Anjorin, Arsenal's Saka, Norwich's Idah Make List
Respected football magazine Four Four Two has compiled a list of the top fifty most exciting teenagers in England and three players of Nigerian descent have been picked.

They are Arsenal superkid Bukayo Saka, Norwich City striking sensation Adam Idah and Chelsea midfielder Faustino Anjorin.

Saka was the top ranked player of Nigerian descent at 24 while Anjorin and Idah ranked 41st and 44th respectively.

On Saka, they wrote : ''The first 2001-born player to feature in the Premier League, Saka is in as much of a hurry to the top as he is to make an impact when crossing the white lines into battle.

''The 17-year-old Londoner is comfortable at full-back or on the wing, like so many of today’s teenage widemen, and Unai Emery has already found ways to use his youthful exuberance. Saka is the latest in a long line of very promising players produced at Hale End recently.''

Anjorin : ''England Under-18 midfielder Anjorin, reminiscent of Michael Ballack when he’s at his dominant best, has already scored in six different youth competitions this season as well as for his country, and seems on course for a breakthrough into senior football before his teenage years are out.''

Idah : ''Adam Idah is yet to join them in making a senior appearance, but the Irish forward’s goalscoring form over the last two years has earned him fluttering eyelashes from some of English football’s biggest clubs. He will likely get his chance under Farke before long.''
