The Premier League has built a reputation as a hotbed of young talent, and this season is no different. 

GMS Contributor Matthew Wall gives us his top 5 youngsters to watch out for in the Premier League this season.

5. Serge Gnabry, 18 (Arsenal)

Gnabry is Arsene Wenger's latest protégé in a long-line of foreign imports at the club. 

The German under-21 international has been compared to Theo Walcott and similarly could have been a professional athlete had he not made it as a footballer.

Having made three first team appearances for the club already, expect to see him make some game-changing moments from the bench for the Gunners this season.

4. Calum Chambers, 18 (Southampton)

Chambers will be looking to follow in the footsteps of his Saints Academy predecessors, such as Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Adam Lallana, in breaking into the first team fold this season.

Impressive in pre-season, Chambers has started all three of Southampton's opening Premier League games. But with Nathaniel Clyne waiting in the wings, this young full back will have to take his chances well if he is to stay in the team.

Southampton do like to blood their homegrown talent, which is promising for Chambers and the rest of the academy graduates.

3. Jordan Ibe, 17 (Liverpool)

Ibe made his Premier League debut for Liverpool in the final game of last season, coincidentally Jamie Carragher's last ever game for the club.

Ibe wasn't fazed by the occasion, dazzling Anfield fans with his pace and directness, and even managed to provide an assist.

Could it be time for a new homegrown legend to take his place in the hearts of the Anfield faithful?

2. Adnan Januzaj, 18 (Manchester United)

The creative young Belgian midfielder has been attracting all sorts of attention with his displays throughout Man United's pre-season. 

Considering Manchester United's failure in the transfer window, we could well see Januzaj in action for the first-team more often than expected. 

He appeared as a sub in United's Community Shield win over Wigan last month and will be eager to take any chances that come his way in the Premier League.

1. Ross Barkley, 19 (Everton)

Barkley is probably the biggest name from the above list, having become familiar with Championship fans last year during his loan spell with Sheffield Wednesday.

He announced his return to the Everton first-team fold with a superb goal on the opening day of this season against Norwich and will be really hoping this is his breakthrough year.

With the void left by Marouane Fellaini's move to United, it's certainly the right time for this young Evertonian to make his mark.
