There’s not much doubt that 2017 belonged to Kylian Mbappé. At the start of last year, no-one had heard of the teenage forward.

But, by the end of it, he was the star man having shone for Monaco in their Ligue 1 title win and sealed a loan move to home-town club Paris Saint-Germain. With a £166million deal agreed for this summer, he will become the world’s second-most expensive player after team-mate Neymar.

So who will be the next breakout star?

We’re barely two months into 2018 but there are a number of hot prospects who could take off this year and reach the stratospheric levels of success that saw Mbappé become the most exciting teenager in the world in 2017.

We’ve picked out 11 wonderkids you should be keeping your eye on throughout this year; from a Chelsea teenager who’s already been capped by Wales to a young striker making waves in the Bundesliga.

Watch the video above to find out who we’ve chosen.
