The 2014-15 Premier League season is just around the corner, and clubs up and down the country are finalising their squads; assessing where they remain weak and judging the transfer market to see who could come in and make a big impact.
For some lucky managers, though, putting their faith in the club's academy system can yield big rewards, saving money on new signings and finding the next big thing for the fans to fawn over, for big clubs to sniff following three impressive sub appearances and, just maybe, somebody who can go on and establish himself as a first-team player.
Here we've selected one youngster from each Premier League team who could be that young pretender.
To qualify, players have to be aged 21 or under and, wherever possible (there are one or two reasonable exceptions), not have made more than 25 top-flight league appearances for the team already.
Otherwise, we can probably rest assured they are part of the plans anyway going into the season and capable of holding their own in the Premier League, rather than a youngster looking to make the breakthrough this time around.
