#3 Ismaila Sarr (Watford)

After making his professional debut with Metz in Ligue 1, Ismaila Sarr also turned out for Rennes before reportedly becoming newly-promoted Premier League club Watford's club-record signing in the summer of 2019.

The Senegalese winger failed to live up to the hype as his five goals in 27 games couldn't keep his club afloat in the English top division. However, two of those goals came in a win over Premier League champions Liverpool that caught the attention of the big boys in the competition.

With Watford intent on making a swift return to the Premier League, Sarr is seen as someone who could play a key role in the club gaining an immediate promotion.

Despite Premier League giants Liverpool and Manchester United reportedly interested in the services of the Senegal international, Watford have managed to keep the striker at the club. However, that could change in the next few days if either club matches or betters Watford's asking price of £40 million.

#4 Joshua King (Bournemouth)

Norwegian striker Joshua King has been a key player for Bournemouth as he scored 48 Premier League goals in the club's five-season stay in the English top-flight that ended last season.

King, a Manchester United reject, scored only six times in 26 games last campaign as goal-shy Bournemouth endured Premier League relegation.

Despite having a year left in his contract with the Championship club, King is unlikely to ply his trade in the second division for too long as he is reportedly the subject of interest from Premier League clubs Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

The striker may have endured a lean campaign last season but his ability to score goals and create opportunities for teammates could benefit a lot of clubs in the English top division.

#5 Joe Rodon (Swansea)

Joe Rodon is a ball-playing centre-back who plies his trade for Championship side Swansea.

The 22-year-old Welshman has impressed in his two seasons in the English Second Division, drawing admiration from Sky Sports EFL pundit Andy Hinchcliffe, who compared his game-style with that of Rio Ferdinand and John Terry.

"You look at Rio Ferdinand and John Terry, and there are elements of both in Rodon's game."

Rodon is reportedly being pursued by Premier League clubs Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham. Spurs are apparently ready to part with anything between £7m and £18m for the services of the player after missing out on some key targets that have left them short-staffed in the centre of defence.
