Former Super Eagles target Bukayo Saka to battle five Premier League stars & 14 others for the 2020 Golden Boy Award.
The 19-year-old was coveted by NFF officials to play for the three-time African Champions but Arsenal made a decision to pledge his international future to England after featuring in the 3-0 win over Wales 3-0 at Wembley last Thursday.
Saka is among the list of nominations with five Premier League players Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, Manchester City duo Phil Foden, Ferran Torres, Wolves recruit Fabio Silva, and Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi.

This time last year, Matteo Guendouzi reached the same stage but to date, the only Arsenal to win the prize is Cesc Fabregas; he did so in 2006.
