Manchester City and Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus is named in the final three for the Golden Boy award alongside Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele.

Previous winners of the Golden Boy include Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, Paul Pogba, Isco, Sergio Aguero and, erm, Anderson.

The 18-year-old Paris Saint-Germain striker has become the latest recipient of the prestigious Golden Boy award, bestowed annually upon the most impressive young player in world football. The first ever victor was Rafael van der Vaart.

Gemma Collins said that the fall made her feel a bit like the fictional accident-prone Bridget Jones. "When I tell you I'm Bridget Jones in an Essex girl it's finally confirmed".

The prize is voted on by journalists from across the world, with Italian newspaper Tuttosport confirming the victor on Monday.

Mbappe burst onto the scene at Monaco last season, before earning a big-money move - initially on loan - to PSG, where he has formed a prolific understanding with Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

Dembele, who turns 21 next May, also completed a huge transfer before the season, relocating from Borussia Dortmund to Barcelona, but is now out with a serious thigh injury, which came in his third appearance for the Catalan giants.

The victor, who will follow in the footsteps of Renato Sanches, who is now on loan at Swansea from Bayern Munich, will be revealed on October 23, 2017.

So far this season, the Brazilian worldwide has registered eight goals across 11 appearances under Pep Guardiola.
