Dolberg has scored 22 goals in 45 matches in all competitions this season, contributing seven assists. However, was he the best young striker in European football this campaign?
Here are the best youngsters this season:
He broke into the first team at the age of 16 in 2015. He made his debut for Italy a year later, becoming the Azzurri’s youngest shot-stopper.
Christensen has been a major part of Die Fohlen’s push for Europa League qualification this campaign. His efforts haven’t escaped the notice of Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, who has expressed his desire to use him in the Premier League champions’ first-team squad next season.
Dele Alli was deservedly voted as the PFA Young Player of the Year after scoring 17 league goals so far for Mauricio Pochettino’s exciting Tottenham side.
Alli has been linked with moves to Europe’s elite clubs this summer after being compared to Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.
In his breakthrough season, the 18 year-old has scored 25 goals in all competitions including six in 9 games as Monaco reached the Champions League semi finals.
Mbappe was rewarded with his international debut for France against Spain in March, becoming his country’s second youngest player in their illustrious history. The future is certainly bright.
