5 players to watch in the Premier League next season

Ones to watch, 2019-20

With the new Premier League campaign just over a month away, each of the 20 teams to feature in next season's competition have now began to start their pre-season preparations.

Training has either started or will be beginning very shortly, with player comings and goings now firmly in the swing of things.

There's still plenty of business to be done, of course, with the majority of clubs just getting rid of their unwanted personnel - new arrivals will start to pick up in the coming weeks.

We've seen some exciting new players move to the top-flight already during this window, though, the most recent being striker Che Adams, who has joined Southampton from Birmingham City.

Having scored 22 goals for the Blues last term, there's plenty of expectation that the Midlands-born forward can help guide Saints to a top 10 finish in the Premier League next term.

We're excited to track his progress next season, just like we are these other four players, some of whom will be making their debut in the English top-flight.

Who are you most looking forward to watch in next season's Premier League? Let us know on Twitter: @FootyAccums!

Tammy Abraham - Chelsea

After enjoying a prolific spell in front of goal last season, as Aston Villa earned promotion back to the Premier League following a three season absence, England nder-21 forward Tammy Abraham will be looking to impress for his parent club Chelsea next term.

Abraham finished the campaign as the Championship's second top goalscorer after finding the net an impressive 26 times, demonstrating his quality in a hugely competitive league. Abraham has it all; he's good with the ball at his feet and in the air, strong, quick, agile and has a great understanding of the game. A natural goalscorer, the 21-year-old looks to have a promising future ahead of him, he just needs a chance to show what he can in the top-flight.

TA

With Maurizio Sarri now gone, it looks increasingly likely that club legend Frank Lampard will be taking the reins at Stamford Bridge. The 40-year-old would give youth a chance in west London, something very few managers have been prepared to do in the past.

Lampard's proposed arrival, partnered with the fact that the Blues are currently under a transfer ban and can't bring in any new signings next term means that Abraham should be given a fair crack of the whip at the Bridge next season. Gonzalo Higuain has now also returned to parent club Juventus as Chelsea decided not to offer him a permanent deal, which leaves Olivier Giroud as the only out-and-out striker at the club; we're predicting a big season for the young forward.

Teemu Pukki - Norwich City

Last season's top goalscorer in the Championship, Teemu Pukki, is vital for Norwich and their progression in the Premier League next term. The Finland international netted 29 league goals last time out and was the main reason the Canaries won the league ahead of the likes of Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Leeds.

pukki

The former Celtic front man was ruthless in front of goal as Daniel Farke's men destroyed almost everything in their path last season, and will now be looking to continue with his destructive form in the world's toughest league.

Norwich have struggled to cope with the demands of the Premier League in the past, developing the reputation of a yo-yo team in recent years. They'll be hoping to shrug off that unwanted title, though, and with Pukki at their disposal up front, could well do just that. There is however a massive jump in quality between the two leagues, so it'll be extremely interesting to see whether or not he can perform as well against the big boys.

Daniel James - Manchester United

Manchester United have been forced into trying something different following a disappointing season which saw the club finish 6th and miss out on Champions League football last term. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is evidently fed up of his beloved club shelling out ridiculous transfer fees for money-hungry mercenaries who don't really care about who they play for, not mentioning any names *cough* Alexis Sanchez *cough*.

Daniel James Swansea City

It was time for a different approach, enter Daniel James: the young welsh pace merchant who has it all to prove in the Premier League. The lightening-quick winger - who joined United from Swansea for a reported £15million last month - has bags of ability and last season demonstrated his talents by scoring five goals and registering ten assists in all competitions for the Swans.

It remains to be seen how much of an opportunity James will be presented with at Old Trafford, he could well just be one for the future, though after witnessing their capitulation last season, we think a fresh injection of youth and, well, pace, will serve the club well. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James on one flank.. scary thought.

Che Adams - Southampton

Southampton have finally got a deal across the line for striker Che Adams. The 22-year-old joins from Championship side Birmingham City, having previously turned out for Sheffield United in the second-tier. He'll bring an injection of pace and excitement to an injury-prone frontline on the south coast; Danny Ings is a terrific player on his day and will always get you 10+ goals in a season, but simply cannot remain fit for the duration of a whole campaign, which isn't ideal.

adams

Shane Long works hard but is far from prolific, while manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has made it clear that Charlie Austin is now on borrowed time at St Mary's. Having scored 22 league goals for Birmingham last term - in a side nowhere near as capable as Southampton - the future looks bright for Adams and his new club. One for your Fantasy Football teams, perhaps?

Jack Grealish - Aston Villa

Aston Villa's Jack Grealish is the player we're most looking forward to seeing in next season's Premier League. The creative midfielder featured a little for his boyhood club the last time they found themselves in the top-flight four years ago, but has come on leaps and bounds since then. Grealish is a much more mature player now, who has also developed physically so it'll be extremely interesting to see how he fares against some of the world's greatest players next term.

Jack Grealish Aston Villa

England boss Gareth Southgate has already said that he needs to prove himself in the Premier League before he would consider selecting him for the senior side, so Grealish has it all to prove. With six goals and six assists to his name last time out, Grealish was an integral part of Villa's squad and one of the main reasons they succeeded last season.

He proved that he could handle moments of pressure, too, notably scoring the winning goal against fierce rivals Birmingham after being punched by a fan earlier on in the match. Grealish could be one of the very best in years to come, with this forthcoming season absolutely vital for his progression as a player, we're expecting big things..
