There are many young players in the world who want to achieve something big in their careers and want to play for top clubs.

But this dream remains a dream for some, while others achieve great heights like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney - who were all young starlets once.

But now all these players are approaching their late 20s - and now there's a chance for the young guns to take over.

The English Premier League is well known for nurturing young talents and developing them into players. Many of today's teams have stunning talents from around the world including Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley and Wilfried Zaha.

All of these players have some potential in them, while there are others who are waiting for their time in the limelight.

1.Philippe Coutinho | Liverpool

The 21-year-old Brazilian has been a crucial addition to the Liverpool squad since January.

He can score goals and can also take up the playmaking job by chipping in with some assists, too.

He was a key player in the Brazilian squad that won the 2009 South American Under-17 Championship, scoring three goals. Coutinho made his first senior appearance in a Brazil shirt on 7 October 2010, starting in a friendly match against Iran. He has also scored three goals for Liverpool in a total of 15 appearances.

He has been the one who creates the goals for Luis Suarez and others as well. A product of Inter Milan's youth system, the Brazilian can be the one for the future if he is handed playing time for the side.

This guy can be called as "the next Kaka" for Brazil if his current form and luck remains with him.

2. Kevin de Bruyne | Chelsea

The 22-year-old Belgian is set to get more starts for Jose Mourinho's Chelsea this season.

The attacking midfielder has acquired experience from Racing Genk, Werder Bremen and of course his current club Chelsea.

He was loaned out to Bremen last season and scored 10 goals in 32 appearances for the German club. The young star has also scored three goals in 11 appearances for the senior Belgian side.

Mourinho has shown faith in De Bruyne, who could be a player to watch out for in the coming years. He can even operate as a winger and fire in crosses from out wide. After he came back to Chelsea from the season-long loan, there were rumors surrounding the fact that De Bruyne might move to Borussia Dortmund or Bayer Leverkusen

Mourinho, however, assured De Bruyne he was a part of Chelsea's plan for the future, and the player officially was returned to Chelsea. This guy can threaten the positions of Juan Mata and Eden Hazard in the coming 2-3 years.

3. Adnan Januzaj | Manchester United

The 18-year-old Belgian had impressed United manager David Moyes intensely in the pre-season friendlies.

He played as a winger and played a huge role in building up the team's play. He scored one goal against Hong Kong side Kitchee FC. He even chipped in with assists to create goals for the likes of Danny Welbeck and Jesse Lingaard.

The youngster also came on as a substitute in United's Community Shield game against Wigan. The starlet was bought by United from Anderlecht by pipping Real Madrid and Barcelona. He has reportedly signed a new contract with the Red Devils and can become a long-term investment for them.

Januzaj has played with confidence and authority of a player who precisely knows how good he is and knows where he belongs. He loves to keep the ball close to his body and can frighten any defence with his ability and agility.The youngster has got loads of potential and will surely emerge out as a great player in the coming years.

4.John Guidetti | Manchester City

The Swede had an astonishing tally of 20 goals in 23 matches for Feyenoord to his name. The Man City youngster was loaned to the Dutch side last season and to Burnley in the 2010/11 season.

The 21-year-old began his career at Swedish club BP's youth system in 1998. In April 2008, at the age of sixteen, Guidetti signed a three-year deal with Manchester City.

Guidetti enjoyed a fine first season with the Manchester City under-18 team, scoring 13 times in 13 appearances. He hasn't played for the Manchester City senior side in the league but he can become a force to be scared of if used properly.
