As the Premier League reaches its close, we’re going to see some shakeup on various teams. New players are going to be scouted, some are going to be transferred, and others may be ending their careers. Fans of the English Football League who follow the teams in the Premier League are likely anxious to see how their favorite team fares in transfers and finding new players. Depending who leaves, stays, or joins a team, the tone can be set for that team’s entire upcoming season. So much of a team’s success hangs on how these transfers happen over the summer, so it’s important to pay attention if you want to have an idea of how teams will do in the upcoming season and what players to pay special attention to this year. For some teams, it can be beneficial to transfer some of their players. Here are the top players that could head to a new team.
It seems likely that the Spurs may have been trying to move Trippier out of the starting lineup when they got Serge Aurier, but Aurier proved to not be as reliable as many would have hoped. It’s time to review this teams starting players and see if there are ways the lineup could be improved in a way that sets the team up for a much stronger season this year.
At one time, Jose Mourinho referred to Valencia as “the best right-back,” but that’s no longer the case. Valencia’s playing has slowly begun to wane and his great performances are much less frequent than they once were. It’s time to focus on other players who can provide the assistance the team needs.
For his age and career length, Kouyate should be at his peak playing time. However, over the last season, Kouyate performed worse than he has before. He wasn’t nearly as accurate as he once was and his overall performance has suffered. West Ham needs to evaluate their training and players and aim to do better.
For a long time, Williams was at the height of his career and played incredibly well. He moved throughout football easily and was successfully anywhere he played. Now, his playing has been nothing like it once was. As newer players show him up and highlight his weaknesses, it’s becoming apparent he’s not the player he used to be.
It’s time for Liverpool to evaluate their entire team and make some changes. Solanke is by no means a bad player, but Liverpool has drastically improved in the past season and they need players that reflect that new position. When Gareth Bale substituted for Solanke, he scored more goals than Solanke had throughout the past season. It’s likely Solanke will become an even more incredible player with time and training, but Liverpool needs great players now.
