Of course, Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt isn't included as he currently plies his trade in the Netherlands.
But if he was playing in Europe's top five leagues, he would've been near the top. Maybe even No.1.
The budding centre-back is one of the most sought-after players with Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Liverpool, among others, keeping tabs on him ahead of the summer transfer window.
