These three players urgently need a move away from the Premier League to rekindle their faltering careers – Agreed?

These 3 players are most likely to find new clubs during the winter

We have witnessed the rise and fall of various superstars in the premier league era. Some have gone into English football legend while some have been forgotten. When some players reach a certain age, the pace of the Premier League becomes too much to handle. For others, the Premier League just might not be the right place.

With the recent transfer market boom, acquiring new players has become a more stressful and expensive affair. With the recent transfers of players like Kepa Arizzabalaga, Ousmane Dembele and Neymar, the trend for transfers has been set.

Let’s take a look at 3 players who are in urgent need of a move away from their current clubs to reignite their careers.

Cesc Fabregas – Chelsea FC

Fabregas has slowly been sidelined from the Chelsea side – first by Antonio Conte and further by Maurizio Sarri. He has had an extremely illustrious club and international career, winning just about everything he could have and missing out on just the Champions League.

He was crucial in the Euro and World Cup-winning Spain squads and has developed into arguably the best passer in the continent. His services would still be a mouthwatering prospect for various clubs around the globe. The player bid adieu to the fans during what is being touted his last game in Chelsea colours and now, it looks like the world could be his oyster.

Callum Hudson-Odoi – Chelsea FC

Surprisingly, another Chelsea player is also included in this rather short list. Callum Hudson-Odoi is widely regarded as one of Europe’s hottest young properties at the moment. Players of that ability and calibre are usually brought into the first team at the earliest possible opportunity for development purposes.

A pacy winger who possesses an unreal arsenal of skills, tricks and flicks, he is exciting to watch and can be a game changer in the future. As he has received extremely limited game time at Chelsea, reports from Goal.com are suggesting that Bayern Munich are interested in signing the youngster.

While a loan move would be the best option for his development, if he is convinced that his career at Chelsea is over, there is no better time to move to a club like Bayern Munich than now.

Jermaine Defoe – AFC Bournemouth

With just 4 substitute appearances in the Premier League all season, Jermaine Defoe has gradually fallen out of favour at Bournemouth. He now sees Josh King, Callum Wilson and Lys Mousset ahead of him in the pecking order for the striker’s role.

The 36-year-old former England international has been an excellent servant to a multitude of Premier League clubs and has had an excellent career. He is still capable of the odd goal although he has lost that poacher’s instinct that he once possessed. While a move to a Premier League team is not out of the equation, he would be better off moving to a lower league to ensure game time.

Newcastle United Opinion: Magpies must sign these 3 vital players 

Newcastle United started the Premier League season with a lot of lofty ambitions and dreams. But as it turned out, the harsh reality of the English game didn’t let them get anywhere near their pre-season targets and this was mainly because of the wave of injuries they suffered along the course of the season.

A variety of their star players including the likes of Jonjo Shelley, Mo Diame, Kenedy and Paul Dummett spent prolonged spells on the sideline which certainly didn’t help Rafa Benitez’s cause and managed to put him under a bit of added pressure as well. 

With most of the season now behind us, a quick look back at their season and it could well be branded a successful one considering the apparent inability they showed to score goals in the first part of the season, despite the presence of Salomon Rondon. 

The winter signing of Paraguayan star Miguel Almiron has certainly been a massive success and considering all of this, it’s quite silly to see that Newcastle haven’t been targeting to reach greater heights. With young players like Ayoze Perez and Christian Atsu to push the team forward, there is a bright future ahead. 

The purchase of a couple of high quality players is definitely going to be necessary considering the toll that the injury wave took on them earlier in the season. According to exclusive reports from the Daily Star, Newcastle managed Rafa Benitez has created a shortlist of three players that he wishes to lure to St.James’ Park at the end of the season. 

Dwight McNeil

As suggested by reports, Rafa has added Burnley’s young sensation Dwight McNeil to wish list of summer signing which already included the names of Bournemouth stars Ryan Fraser and David Brooks. With such a massive overhaul planned at the Toon, Rafa could be taking Newcastle into the next phase of the long history. 

Here are the 3 Premier League stars that Newcastle are looking to sign in the summer: 

Dwight McNeil 

The Burnley youngster has been a sensation since bursting onto the Premier League scene earlier in the season and since then, his stock has been skyrocketing.

Still only 19, the Clarets’ prized possession has been showing off his amazing talents off late and it’s no surprise that the bigger teams have begun to ask questions about the 3-goal star.

David Brooks and Ryan Fraser

Ryan Fraser 

Fraser’s season has been one to behold as it seems like he just keeps going from strength to strength. Yet to miss a game in the league this season, Fraser’s contribution to Eddie Howe’s side have been commendable while his numbers which read 7 goals and 11 assists are the stuff of dreams for a young Scot as well.

David Brooks 

Another young talent being nurtured and developed by Eddie Howe at the Vitality Stadium, Brooks has been a revelation since coming to the fore when the Cherries needed him most earlier in the season.

Since making the starting role his own, his performance levels have gone up and his record of 7 goals and 5 assists means that the 21-year-old’s value is on the up as well.

Newcastle United Opinion: Magpies should sign David Brooks this summer

According to the Daily Star, Newcastle United are interested in signing Bournemouth attacker David Brooks, with manager Rafael Benitez understood to be keen on bringing the Welsh starlet to Tyneside in the summer.

The same report claims that Newcastle also want to bring in Brooks’ teammate Ryan Fraser in a bid to add more depth and firepower to their attacking ranks.

David Brooks has been a revelation in the Premier League this season for Bournemouth and has emerged as one of the breakout stars in the top-flight following his £11.5 million move from Sheffield United last summer.

The 21-year-old Welsh international has caught the eye of several top clubs with his consistently impressive displays for the Cherries, netting 7 goals and assisting a further 5 in just 28 appearances.

Newcastle’s links with Brooks and Fraser should be a piece of welcome news to the fans at Tyneside, who would be hoping for some young and exciting talent to arrive in the summer.

The Magpies currently sit 15th in the Premier League standings and Benitez has been instrumental in guiding the club to safety following a dismal start to the campaign. Salomon Rondon has been a key contributor with his goals and assists up front but it remains to be seen whether both the manager and the player stay at the club beyond the end of the season.

In all honesty, David Brooks would be a wonderful signing for the Magpies both in terms of quality and resale value. He is still a very young player with loads of potential who would command a huge fee in the future if the club decides to cash in on him, though Bournemouth would not let him depart on the cheap after an impressive first season.

Mike Ashley will have to loosen his purse strings and beat off competition from a number of top clubs if he is really serious about the player.

The deal, if it materializes, would be a perfect start to the summer for Newcastle and certainly a huge coup for the Magpies. Brooks has the talent to emulate the success of his fellow countrymen Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale and Newcastle will have a real gem in their hands if they do manage to strike a deal for the youngster.

Brooks is a technically-gifted versatile attacking midfielder who is capable of playing through the centre in a No.10 role and also out wide on the right, owing to his left-footed nature.

Noted for his sharpness, agility, pace and acceleration, Brooks not only uses his trickery on the ball and quick feet to leave the opposition flat-footed but he is equally adept at creating chances with his creative passing and vision.

Adept at linking up with his teammates and a powerful striker of the ball with his left foot, Brooks would be the perfect man to a different dimension to Newcastle’s attack.

The Magpies need to get rid of some of their lacklustre attackers like Robert Kenedy, Christian Atsu, Rolando Aarons, Jacob Murphy and a few others to raise some valuable funds and free up space for someone like Brooks to come in.

Ayoze Perez has hit good form late in the season while January club-record signing Miguel Almiron is set to make a big impression. In the circumstances, the acquisition of a proven Premier talent like Brooks could work wonders for Benitez.

Bournemouth should complete a £25million double raid on Leeds for two supremely talented stars

Bournemouth Opinion: Cherries should sign Phillips and Clarke from Leeds

According to a report from Football Insider, Bournemouth are keen on bringing Leeds United duo Kalvin Phillips and Jack Clarke to the south coast in the summer, as manager Eddie Howe plots a sensational £25 million double raid on the Whites.

The same report claims that Phillips would cost around £15 million while Clarke might come in the £10 million bracket after breaking into the first team picture at Elland Road this season.

Football Insider also understands that the Cherries are interested in the duo irrespective of whether Leeds get promoted to the Premier League or stay in the Championship.

While Phillips has been one of the mainstays of Marcelo Bielsa’s first team playing in that holding midfield role in front of the backline, Clarke has emerged as one of the breakout stars of the Championship with some eye-catching displays down the flanks, though he is still not a first-team regular for the league games.

The 18-year-old has accumulated 2 goals and 2 assists from just 4 starts in the league, which has put him on the radar of several top Premier League clubs.

Bournemouth have fearlessly splashed the cash on promising young British talents in the transfer market and manager Eddie Howe has been able to extract the best out of them, with the likes of Lewis Cook, Chris Mepham, David Brooks, Jordon Ibe and Dominic Solanke being amongst those to have arrived at the south coast in recent times.

Their policy of building a strong core of young English players has worked wonders for them in the Premier League and Phillips and Clarke are exactly the sorts of players that Bournemouth need to look at.

To put things into perspective, Clarke and Phillips would be excellent additions to Bournemouth’s ranks as the Cherries do need to add depth and quality to their central midfield and attacking options.

Clarke is a player in the same mould as David Brooks and given that the Welshman has been linked with moves to bigger clubs in the summer, the 18-year-old might prove to be a useful squad player for the club next season, though it is unlikely that he would get too many first-team opportunities in the Premier League.

Clarke is a technically-gifted winger with decent pace, flair and quality on the ball, who can develop into a fine player in the days to come and push the likes of Ibe and Lys Mousset for a first-team role.

Phillips, on the other hand, is another academy graduate at Elland Road who has taken his game to a new level under Bielsa this season and has played a key role in the club’s surge for promotion.

Primarily a defensive midfielder by trade, the 23-year-old has also showcased his versatility to play at centre-back, which might be one of the reasons behind Bournemouth’s interest in the player.

He excels with his tackling and interception skills in the middle of the park and uses his strength and game awareness to shield the backline. To add to that, the youngster is a good passer who likes to dictate the tempo of the game by moving the ball around and holding things together.

Phillips would be the ideal man to partner Jefferson Lerma in the midfield and he is more than capable of ousting ageing players like Dan Gosling and Andrew Surman. Also, his presence might just put a little bit more pressure on Lewis Cook to start delivering the goods more consistently.

Bournemouth should continue their hunt for young British talents in the transfer market and the acquisition of Clarke and Phillips would certainly be a step in the right direction for the club, as they look to consolidate in the Premier League in the years to come.
