Everton’s hidden jewel The Guardian has picked George Morgan as one of the finest Premier League teenagers born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007.
Morgan was named as Everton’s representative on the newspaper’s list, which was published on October 10th. The description mentioned his speed and strength, as well as his eye for goal.
It is claimed Morgan models his game on legendary Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski, and his consistent goalscoring touch throughout his time in the Toffees youth ranks point towards his hard work to meet that demand.
A promising future prospect
Despite being the son of former Wales international Craig Morgan, the Everton gem has opted to represent both England and Wales at youth level, although he remains eligible for both sides internationally should he emerge as an option in the future.
The Guardian shared that the striker had suffered from injury issues last year, but is back to full fitness and has had a flying start to the under-18s campaign. According to Transfermarkt, he has played 124 minutes across four appearances so far this season.
It is always good for fans and the club to see players performing well and catching the eye at academy level, with the attention on the club’s young players always an intriguing subject.
While it’s important not to get carried away, Morgan will have aspirations of representing Everton at the highest level in the future, and as he has been named on the list of the Premier League’s best young stars, you would think he has a chance.
