Jamal Musiala is one of five Bundesliga players - and two from Bayern Munich - on the shortlist for this year's Golden Boy award.
Watch: All of Musiala's goals and assists last season
Jude Bellingham, among the betting favourites, is another former Dortmund man who has scored 10 goals in 10 games since his summer switch to Real Madrid.
Musiala was Bayern's most potent attacking force last season with 12 goals and 10 assists in the Bundesliga, and scored the winner to give Bayern the title with victory over Cologne on the final day.
Xavi has perhaps been the most impressive of the five this season, with three goals and four assists since he joined Leipzig on loan from Paris Saint-Germain. He also won September's Goal of the Month.
