Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge wants the club to give youth their chance.
The England Under-21 striker is determined to lead the charge as the London outfit's young guns battle to make an impact next term.
He told The Sun: "I want to stay at Chelsea and fight for my place. Next season I want a starting place and maybe to get into the full England side as well.
"From there, I just want to try and win as many trophies as I can."
And Sturridge has highlighted midfielder McEachran, 18, as someone who can deliver for both club and country.
He added: "McEachran will be a huge player for Chelsea because he's got everything a midfielder needs in his game.
"He's very young but I don't think his age has anything to do with what he can do on the pitch.
"He'll be playing first-team football next season as he's ready for it now."
