2. Ross Barkley | Everton
No wonder Ross Barkley is currently being linked to the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.
The 19-year-old has cemented his status as a first-team regular at Goodison Park after a series of exceptional performances at the start of the current campaign under new manager Roberto Martinez.
Barkley has been compared to star names of past and present, including Wayne Rooney and Paul Gascoigne, for his ability to dribble with both pace and power.
He won his first England cap in September's World Cup qualifier against Moldova.
