The “Future 50” list, compiled by a number of UEFA correspondents, names the top 50 prospects in European football, with Scotland international Tierney included alongside the likes of Borussia Dortmund’s English-born starlet Jadon Sancho, new Roma signing Malcom and the €100m-rated Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
A host of World Cup stars including Arsenal new boy Lucas Torreira, France defender Benjamin Pavard and Hirving Lozano of Mexico also make the list.
Other UK-based players include Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon, Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu and Manchester City’s Phil Foden.
The 21-year-old Tierney continues to impress for the Hoops, and has been linked with a host of top clubs thanks to his rapid rise at Parkhead.
A £25 million move to Everton was mooted earlier this summer, while Juventus and Manchester United are also reportedly keeping a close eye on the left back.
