It has been an excellent season so far for a number of young English players in the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.
Not only may they have done enough to persuade England manager Gareth Southgate to include them in the next England squad, they could also be on the radar of some major clubs in the next transfer window.
We’ve taken a look at three players who are most likely to bag a move once the transfer window reopens as there are sure to be a number of clubs queuing for their services.
Jack Grealish has proved this season that he has the potential to be one of the stars of the Premier League in the near future. Aston Villa have had a difficult campaign on their return to the top-flight but Grealish has produced some excellent performances. Without those, they would be in a far worse position than they are now.
The Villains remain odds-on to be relegated this season but it is tight at the bottom end of the table.
Grealish has been linked with a move to Manchester United in the last two transfer windows. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may see the 24-year-old as a great addition to his squad as they aim to close the gap on their title rivals.
Leicester have been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season. The Foxes are on course for a top four spot at the end of the campaign, which will see them qualify into the Champions League.
One of their standout players has been James Maddison who they signed from Norwich in June 2018. The creative midfielder is very much at home in the Premier League and the number of games he has played for Leicester over the last couple of years indicates how important he is to them.
Brendan Rodgers will be desperate to keep hold of the 23-year-old in the next transfer window. If the England international does decide to leave, it could take upwards of £100 million to release him from the club.
It is hard to believe that Declan Rice is only 21. The West Ham midfielder looks like he has over 300 league appearances under his belt, so assured have his performances been for the Hammers this season. Rice was West Ham’s Players’ Player of the Year in the 2018/19 campaign and he is on course for more accolades at the end of this season.
The 21-year-old has featured seven times for England and is set for many more appearances. He will be doing his best to help the Hammers maintain their Premier League status this season. Even if West Ham do stay up, they will have a big job keeping hold of their talented midfielder in the next transfer window.
Regardless of where their future lies, all three players have the potential to reach the very top in the sport, which bodes well for the England national team.
