Lucas Gourna-Douath among Golden Boy Finalists

16th place in index ranking

Every year Tuttosport honours the best U21 talents in Europe with their Golden Boy vote. Four of our boys managed to make it into the Top 100 this year, with no other team having more youngsters nominated than us in 2023.

The Italian newspaper has now named the 20 finalists (along with five further wildcard spots) based on their Index Ranking. Along with stars like Real Madrid's Jude Bellingham and Bayern Munich's Jamal Musiala, our French midfield maestro Lucas Gourna-Douath has made the cut!

The decision of the winner among the 25 finalists will now be made by 50 international sports journalists. Maurits Kjaergaard was 34th in the index ranking, Petar Ratkov was 40th and Oscar Gloukh also made the top 50 in 45th place. Parallel to the main contest, there is also a fan vote for the Golden Boy Web Award running. You can vote on that here:
