Stewart Robson shares his thoughts on the best young players under 21 years of age, identifying the ones he believes will become superstars.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Timothy Weah has said he wants to establish himself with the French champions next season after returning from a loan spell at Celtic.

United States international Weah, who spent the second half of the campaign in Scotland, told RMC it was his dream to establish himself alongside Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.

“I just need to go back to PSG and hopefully I can fulfil everything that the coaches and the club needs from me,” the 19-year-old said. “My ambition was always to be a player for PSG.

“Coming up from the academy, that was my dream. It was always my dream to be at that level, to play for such a high-class team with amazing players, and that is going to continue to be my objective.

“I love the club and I have been there for four years — why not make it more?”

Sources have told ESPN FC that PSG will listen to offers for Weah in the summer but will not actively look to sell him.

He is under contract until 2021, and the sources said Strasbourg had revived their interest from last summer while there are other suitors in Ligue 1 and the Premier League.

Weah, who scored four goals in 16 appearances for Celtic, said it had been important to exit his “comfort zone” by making the move to Glasgow.

“It was a challenge,” he said. “Being at PSG, everyone knows my last name, and my father [George Weah], so it was a challenge.

“I think that it is really important for footballers to get out of their comfort zone at a young age and see a different environment — Scotland was that step.”

Weah said he wanted to become a big name in U.S. football but added: “That is 50-50. America is really big, and to be a star in that country you have to do a lot.

“You have to score goals, you have to work. I think that I am getting there. The fans, they love me, and they love when I am on the field. I love playing for them and I love playing for my country. It is a complete honour.

“I feel like, some time, I will be a big player.”
