The youngster has seen his stock rise throughout the season after producing a series of eye-catching displays in the heart of the Toffees' midfield.
Wenger's side travel to Goodison Park in the Premier League today, and the Frenchman is convinced that the 20-year-old has the necessary qualities to make it in modern football.
"From a young hope, he has suddenly convinced everybody he has a huge potential and talent and can have huge impact in big games," he told The Mirror.
"He has a combination of technical qualities and power, which are very difficult to combine in midfield, and what is demanded from a modern midfielder.
"For me, he has had a big impact this season. He is one of the best I have seen."
This afternoon's clash on Merseyside is scheduled to kick off at 1.30pm.
