The Portuguese has recently joined up with his club teammates after competing with Portugal at Euro 2020.
Asked about the young players who have caught the eye, Fernandes said: "I think we know some of them already. Jimmy Garner, I think is a really good player, I really like him and the way he kicks the ball. He's really aggressive off the ball too.
"[Anthony] Elanga was already playing with us and this pre-season he has been brilliant. He's a nice kid, works hard and is really humble and I think he's deserving of everything that's happening to him.
"I see a brilliant future for him and Jimmy too, and also for all the other kids."
