Five relegated Premier League players who might be back with other teams next season

Five relegated Premier League players who might be back with other teams next season

After an extraordinarily long season, the curtains came down on the English Premier League campaign last week with Liverpool lifting the title. 

On the other end of the table, three sides were relegated, creating space for new teams to be promoted ahead of the 2019/20 season. 

Norwich faced the chop after just a single season in the top-flight, while Bournemouth and Watford's stay in the top division came to an end as well.

West Bromwich and Leeds took their places, with either Fulham or Brentford set to complete the list when they face off on Tuesday night in the Championship play-off final. 

Despite their relegation, the three sides had a number of players who shone through the campaign, attracting attention from a number of Premier League sides. 

Which players might be back next season in different shirts?

Todd Cantwell

The Norwich winger was one of the electric performers for Daniel Farke's side. It's no surprise then that the 22-year-old has a number of suitors. Tottenham have maintained an interest for long, and have been joined by Leicester City and Newcastle United. 

Cantwell enjoyed an impressive campaign, scoring seven goals and providing a pair of assists in the 39 matches he played for his boyhood club, whom he joined in 2008. 

Ismaila Sarr

Watford were really unlucky to be relegated and will now have to contend with losing a number of their key players. 

Sarr is one of the players, with Wolves and Crystal Palace showing interest. In both cases, he is expected to replace departing players, with Palace in particular keen in case Wilfried Zaha leaves. 

He has also been earmarked as a possible Adama Traore replacement at Wolves, with Nuno Espirito expecting bids for the explosive winger.

 Abdoulaye Doucoure

Another Watford player who might be on the move. Everton came close to signing him last summer, but the deal fell through. 

But with the Hornets now relegated and needing some financial boost, the Toffees might land their £40million-rated man. 

Nathan Ake

The former Chelsea youngster is a target for Manchester City, with reports indicating the former champions had reached an agreement over his sale. 

Chelsea have an option to buy him thanks to a buy-back clause they inserted in the deal that took him to Bournemouth, but it seems Frank Lampard is not interested in activating it. 

He was one of the bright spots for the Cherries in a surprisingly disappointing season. 

Teemu Pukki

Pukki lit the Premier League from the first match for Norwich, and even though the fire fizzled out at some point, he still remains a tried and tested striker in the Premier League. 

His  11 goals for the season are a good return, and the likes of Brighton and Newcastle could do with such a talent.
