Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been nominated for the 2017 Golden Boy award alongside the likes of Marcus Rashford, Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele.
Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters and Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus is on the list as well.
The award is organized by the Italian newspaper Tuttosport and the title is given out to the most impressive footballer under the age of 21, playing in Europe.
While the likes of Rashford and Jesus have been in the limelight for a while now, players like Calvert-Lewin have gone under the radar. The Everton forward is very highly rated by the coaches at Goodison Park and he has been impressing Ronald Koeman for a while.
3 – Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been directly involved in all three of Everton’s domestic goals this season, with 1 goal and 2 assists. Busy.

Calvert-Lewin showed everyone exactly why he is on that list last night against Sunderland. The young Everton attacker looked sharp and he was lethal in front of the goal.
