The 19 biggest u20 talents of De Toekomst

An in-depth look at the players poised to make an impact in Amsterdam

If you are a supporter of Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam you are much luckier than the average footy fan. Not only do we get to see our team succeed (for the most part) at the domestic and, occasionally, continental level, but the Amsterdammers also provide viewers with a constant flow of new talent from it’s acclaimed youth academy.

We are so lucky, in fact, that it is not very difficult to compile a long list of young players that show superb potential. These rankings are not based solely on current ability; instead, mostly on how good of a player I think he will become. Without further ado, here are the 19 biggest under 20 talents of De Toekomst.

Honorable mentions: Teun Bijleveld, Danilho Doekhi, Azor Matusiwa, Zian Flemming

All players were under the age of 20 as of August 1, 2017. Player statistics provided by
