Five players from EFL who could move to Premier League

Championship playoffs for Premier League qualification

The transfer window of the Premier League concluded on Monday however there is room for many transfers to happen.

To be clear, the Premier League can still sign players from EFL, whose market is still active.

Here are the five possible players from EFL who could end up playing in the Premier league League.

Ismaila Sarr

Sarr had been a top target for both Liverpool and Manchester United in the transfer window, with the latter trying to sign him on the deadline day. However, Watford declined the offer straightaway as it turned out to be a loan move. Liverpool also looked at the possibility of signing the 22-year-old but put down by Watford’s fee of 40m pounds. The Reds, instead, ended up signing Diogo Jota. Nonetheless, Sarr is an exciting prospect and a return to the Premier League could be still on.

Said Benrahma

Benrahma was one of the whispered names among many top clubs in the transfer window following his excellent season in the Championship. While his team-mate Ollie Watkins from Brentford moved to Aston Villa, Benrahma failed to make the cut. Crystal Palace came close to signing him while Arsenal and Chelsea had also registered their interest. Leeds and West Ham could also be a possible destination for the Algerian winger.

Todd Cantwell

Todd Cantwell’s name emerged on the transfer radar of Leeds United following Marcelo Bielsa’s request for a creative midfielder – which also saw them get linked with a bunch of players from La Liga and Serie A. 

Having regressed from the Premier League last season, Norwich City are considering Cantwell important for their project. But a tempting offer couldn’t prevent the English youngster from making his return to the top-flight. Furthermore, he was impressive in the Canaries’ dreadful season last term.

David Brooks 

The highly-talented Bournemouth midfielder has been considered by Manchester United as one of the alternatives for Jadon Sancho. However, Man Utd failed to sign any right-wingers on the deadline day. However, there is no shortage of suitors for the 23-year-old as Leicester City, Leeds United and Sheffield United are all interested in signing him. Brooks has recently recovered his injury issues and could return to the Premier League.

Joshua King

Bournemouth striker Josh King had been linked with a move to Manchester United and Tottenham before they opted to sign Edinson Cavani and Carlos Vinicius respectively. However, Aston Villa and West Brom have entered the race for the Norwegian striker.
