Young Championship players good enough to play in the Premier League

Published

on

With the January transfer window opening shortly, Premier League clubs will be considering whether they need to strengthen their squads. Whilst many will be shopping abroad, especially for stars that may have caught their eye during the World Cup, there is no shortage of talent closer to home in the Championship.

 

Here are some of the young players from that league who may be ready for the step up.

 

Max Aarons (Norwich City)

 

Still just 22 years old, Aarons has already played for Norwich City 177 times. Capped 20 times by England at under-21 international; he is versatile – although primarily a right back, he can play on the opposite flank as well.

 

In the past he has been linked with the likes of Everton, with foreign clubs like Wolfsburg and Marseille also tracking his progress.

Whilst Norwich may want to keep him as they look to mount another promotion campaign, it seems a matter of time before he is playing at a higher level.

 

Ben Brereton Diaz (Blackburn Rovers)

It is only a matter of time before Ben Brereton Diaz is a Premier League player, with both Leeds United and West Ham United linked with the Chilean international in the past (he qualifies for the South American country through his mother).

Diaz, a striker, does what all teams want and need – he scores goals, having scored 41 in 145 games for Blackburn Rovers. He is out of contract at the end of the season, and having refused to sign a new deal, may be sold in January whilst some value can be acquired for him.

Alex Scott (Bristol City)

19 year old Alex Scott has already played for Bristol City, but with Premier League clubs already tracking him, it remains to be seen how long they can hold on to him.

He impressed playing for England under-19s at the European Championship in Slovakia, starting in the final which his side eventually won, and has the ability to play in a variety of midfield roles. His combative nature is illustrated by the fact he has already picked up eight yellow cards this season.

 

Tyrese Campbell (Stoke City)

Campbell certainly has striker pedigree running through his blood – he is the son of former Arsenal and Everton frontman Kevin.

He made his debut for Stoke back in 2018, but his career was derailed for a while by a serious knee injury. However, he is now back to full fitness and showing signs of the promise that earned him England under-21 honours. Still just 22 years old, he has time on his side when it comes to making an impact at a higher level.

 

Sorba Thomas (Huddersfield Town)

23 year old Thomas spent six years playing in the National League with Boreham Wood, but he managed the transition to the Championship and Huddersfield Town with ease. He was part of the side that reached the play-off final at Wembley last season, he finished his first season with 6 assists.

A Welsh international he was part of their squad at the Qatar World Cup.
