Federico Chiesa has been named among the nominees for the European Golden Boy 2017 award.

The Viola winger joins the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Borja Mayoral, Ousmane Dembele and Marcus Rashford on the 25-man shortlist. AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is the only other Italian included.

The winner will be presented with the prize in Monaco on 23 October 2017.

Chiesa's nomination for the prestigious Under-21 accolade is recognition for his impressive breakout season with the Viola last term, when he made 34 appearances in all competitions and scored four goals.

The 19-year-old opened his Viola account this season with a stunning strike against Bologna at the weekend, having scored his first goal for Italy U21s a few weeks ago.
