1. Adam Wharton (England/Crystal Palace)

Adam Wharton was an undiscovered gem in the Championship, plying his trade for Blackburn Rovers. That all changed when Crystal Palace signed him for £6M last January. Since then, he's bossed the midfield, becoming Oliver Glasner's first name on the teamsheet. His performances earned him a call-up to England's squad for the Euros. Will he become England's breakout star? Whether Gareth Southgate trusts him enough remains to be seen, but Wharton has shown he has all the talent to succeed.

2. Kai Havertz (Germany/Arsenal)

When Arsenal signed him for £65M, social media was awash with accusations that Arsenal overpaid for midfielder/striker Kai Havertz. To say he hadn't set the world alight at Chelsea was an understatement. But Mikel Arteta clearly saw something in him, and despite a rocky start, Havertz became Arsenal's most in-form player during the run-in, netting 13 goals and assisting 7. With his striker credentials proven, can Havertz kick on and bring the trophy back to Germany?

3. Rodri (Spain/Manchester City)

Never bet against Rodri. Nobody goes 70 games unbeaten based on luck alone. He is an imperious midfielder with trophies and accolades abound. One thing thats missing is an international trophy. He came close with Spain in 2021, reaching the semi final stage. If Spain are to go one step further and claim the top prize, Rodri will have to be at the top of his game. And really, would you bet against that?

4. Pedro Neto (Portugal/Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Pedro Neto became the player every top 6 club wanted to sign when he produced a 5-star performance against Manchester City, earning Wolves a hard-fought 2-1 win over the eventual champions. He struggled with injuries for most of the season, but his quality was proven beyond doubt. With Portugal as the dark horse of the Euros, Pedro Neto has every chance of making a name for himself on the international stage. With superstars like Bruno Fernandes to help him, he has every chance to do just that.

5. Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium/Manchester City)

Kevin De Bruyne is a magician. There's nothing more to say. He missed more than half of the 2023/24 Premier League season yet he nearly got the most assists. He's been playing at a high level for nearly a decade. What better way to crown his illustrious career than bringing home the trophy for Belgium? The big question is, can he stay fit? One thing is certain, if he does, Belgium have a chance.
