Making the Move: 12 Top Talents We'd Love to See Playing in the Premier League Next Season

With the Premier League's attraction at an all time high, it'll be interesting to see what players will opt for the gruelling challenge of competing in the English top tier next season. 


For now, we can speculate and dream of some of the top talents we'd love to see gracing our clubs turf when the new campaign starts in August.


Messi? Ronaldo? It's highly unlikely. However, with incredible performers stretching from the Championship to Serie A, we'll in no doubt be treated to some new and exciting footballing brains to feast our eyes on.


So without further ado, here's a list of 12 top talents we'd love to see playing in the Premier League next season: 

12. James Maddison (Norwich)

We'll start off the list with some homegrown and exciting talent. James Maddison has been lighting up the Championship this season, and the 21-year-old has a posse of Premier League teams after his signature.


His current side Norwich won't be securing promotion to the Premier League this time around, so it looks likely Maddison will be heading to the top flight alone in the search for a new challenge.


It remains to be seen who will persuade the talented midfielder into their ranks, however, after a stellar FA Cup display against Chelsea this season, Maddison all but proved he could mix it with the best.

11. Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund)

One of Europe's wonderkids, Christian Pulisic has long been touted with a move to the Premier League, and the 19-year-old USA international isn't short of potential suitors in the top flight of English football.


Currently working his trade at German giants Borussia Dortmund, Pulisic has become a household name in the Bundesliga, but a big money move to England seems a certainty for the youngster.


Will it come in time for the 2018/19 season? Well, with the USA not qualifying for the World Cup this summer, the youngster certainly has some time on his hands to weigh up his options. 

10. Timo Werner (RB Leipzig)

Timo Werner's attacking style of play is something every Premier League team would want in their arsenal. 


Fast, reliable and lethal in front of the goal, Werner has all the attributes to be one of the Premier League's best strikers.


The German internationals current side RB Leipzig are on course to miss out on Champions League football next season, and a man of Werner's talents needs to be mixing it with the best.


Expect to see him lining up for a Premier League side come August. 

9. Jorginho (Napoli)

Jorginho has been an integral part of Maurizio Sarri's Neapolitan revolution, and the holding midfielder has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs.


The Italian is a rare commodity in football, and his Kante-esque style of play is hard to find in the modern era of the beautiful game.


A shoe in to be part of the 2018/19 Premier League season; If you are a betting man, Jorginho's a money back guarantee.    

8. Sergej Milinković-Savić (Lazio)

Sergej Milinković-Savić is the type of player you'd always pay to go and watch. Physically the Serbian is outstanding, but along with that, he has the agility and skills to go box to box for the full 90 minutes.


Lazio will in no doubt do all they can to keep their star man in Rome, but a player with the kind of ability Savic possesses can only move onto bigger and better things.


Watch a few highlight reels of this man on YouTube, and you'll see what all the fuss is about. The Premier League would be his perfect playground.

7. Kieran Tierney (Celtic)

At 20 years old, Tierney has already captained his country, alongside winning multiple league and cup titles with his boyhood club Celtic.


Surely he is now ready to take a step up and make a move to the Premier League. It's always nice to see young British talent doing so well, but to be the very best, a move up in class is the obvious next step in Tierney's career.


Would Brendan Rodgers be willing to let Celtic's prized asset go? For the right price and the promise of first-team football, there's a strong chance.

6. Alisson Becker (Roma)

Top goalkeeping talents are few and far between in Europe at the moment, and with David de Gea sitting firmly on top of his throne as the Premier Leagues best man between the sticks, some competition against the Spaniard wouldn't go amiss.


Welcome to the mix, Alisson Becker. The Brazilian international has shone for Roma this season and is attracting interest from some of the biggest sides in Europe; Specifically his Champions League semi-final opponents Liverpool.


He wouldn't come on the cheap though, and whether or not a Premier League side would like to dish out a massive lump sum on him is yet to be seen; what we do know, however, is that Becker is a top keeper who would only make the Premier League better.

5. Nabil Fekir (Lyon)

See above Nabil Fekir making his best impression of Lionel Messi. The French international and Lyon captain has come of age this season taking over the reigns from Alexandre Lacazette as the French side's leading man.


The midfielder's style of play is ideally suited to the fast-paced nature of the top tier of English football, and his free kick taking prowess would be a weapon welcomed by any Premier League side.


Fekir has undoubtedly proved this season that his future lies outside of Ligue 1, but does this mean he'll end up in England? For the sake of every Premier League fan, we hope so.

4. Leon Bailey (Bayer Leverkusen)

Arguably the most exciting talent on the list, Leon Bailey has exhibited his thrilling style of play in the Bundesliga this season for Bayer Leverkusen.


At the tender age of 20, Bailey is already being tipped for big things in the future, and this is something the Jamaican seems to be taking in his stride.


12 goals and six assists in all competitions so far this season have put Bailey on the map, who wouldn't want to see this guy in the Premier League?

3. Malcom (Bordeaux)

Pacey and tricky, Malcom has been a joy to watch in Ligue 1 this season, and attention from some of the Premier League's biggest teams is deserved for the Brazilian.


There will in no doubt be a race for his signature once the transfer window reopens, but where Malcom will be playing his trade next season is still a mystery.


One thing that is for sure is that it won't be at Bordeaux, with the Brazilian already stating he's ready for a new challenge.

2. Mauro Icardi (Internazionale)

Mauro Icardi's goal-scoring abilities have been on display for a few seasons now in Serie A, and the Argentine is never short of transfer speculation and rumours surrounding his name.


The question is could he do it on a cold winter's day in Burnley? His goals to games ratio would suggest he can. 


Champions League hopes for next season look all but gone for Inter, and it might finally be the time for Icardi to part ways with the Italian giants. A move to one of the Premier League's top teams? Why not.

1. Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham)

If you don't know who Ryan Sessegnon is by now, then you've presumably been living under a rock for the past season.


At 17, Sessegnon has took the Championship by storm, scoring 15 times and assisting six in all competition's so far this season.


His performances have earned him many accolades including a PFA young player of the year nomination; the first player to do so outside of the Premier League. 


His current side Fulham are still well on course for promotion to the Premier League following a win over Sunderland on Friday night.
