England manager Gareth Southgate is set to omit Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood from his squad.
The 19-year-old has been billed to be a future prospect for his national team but a dip in form at club level means that he might have to be contented with a place in the England youth ranks.
The Mirror reports that England's glut of attacking talent means Greenwood will likely compete for the U21s for their European Championships with Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane considered automatic selections by Southgate.
Other options in attack for the national team are Danny Ings and Dominic Calvert-Lewin who have had strong seasons with their clubs while Jadon Sancho has returned to form for Borussia Dortmund.
Greenwood has not been able to play consistently for United this season, which could cost him a place with the senior England team this summer but he has an outside chance should he re-invent his season and his competitors drop their levels.
Gareth Southgate is set to allow Reece James, Mason Greenwood and Callum Hudson-Odoi all to be included in England's u21 squad for the EURO's next month.— Football Tweet (@Football__Tweet) February 23, 2021
