Fans hope their clubs can hold on to local heroes Wilfried Zaha, Declan Rice and Jack Grealish

With the ongoing discussions on how the Premier League season might end, the discussion of the next transfer window has inevitably slipped onto the football agenda.

One consequence of the coronavirus pandemic is that we don’t know exactly when – or if – this season will end and when the clubs will be able to sign players.

The summer transfer window is a key time for managers looking to shape their squads, and over time planning will continue despite the lack of games.

If we look at the age and playing time of each player this season, we can see the makeup of each squad and see where clubs might want to be strengthened and where gaps can appear as they try to replace players who are no longer there are contract and ready to leave this summer.

We have already rated the top 10 teams, Now let’s look at the ones in the lower half of the table.

Crystal Palace: New blood needed

With seven first-team players aged 30 and over and the oldest average starting position XI in the Premier League overall, Roy Hodgson has recently saidexternal link he wants to “inject some new blood” into the squad.

Eagles fans might be concerned that no player under the age of 27 is a regular starter.

At the age of 27, the talisman attacker Wilfried Zaha is in the peak years of his career and like him could push for a change last summer, what she would leave with huge boots to fill.

The Eagles will likely have to sign a new center-back as well. Scott Dann will leave after his contract expires and Gary Cahill will be 35 in December.

Everton: building for success

Rented As a manager who “knows how to build a team to win the trophy”, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to be busy in his first summer transfer window.

With Leighton Baines out of contract and a decision has not yet been made on loan player Djibril Sidibe to be signed on a permanent basis, Everton will likely be looking for full-backs although Jonjoe Kenny is set to return after a season on loan at Schalke.

Midfield could also be a priority with only Gylfi Sigurdsson playing regularly on the first team this season, but in Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ancelotti already has two of the best prospects in the league.

Newcastle: Any changes to the Tyne?

With the talk of a potential of 300 million pounds take From a consortium backed by Saudi Arabia, Newcastle could have the busiest transfer window in years.

But even if it doesn’t, the roster will likely still look very different next season. Currently, seven players will be eliminated after Ki Sung-yueng is eliminated in January.

Steve Bruce, who is considered the Premier League’s lowest scorer, will no doubt try to add to his attacking options £ 40m striker Joelinton after scoring just one Premier League goal all season.

Southampton: Signatures on both ends

After both Maya Yoshida and Cedric Soares were loaned out in January and their contracts expire this summer, Southampton needs to be strengthened defensively.

Despite the club’s loan of two young prospects to cover their departures, the Saints reportedly only have the option to buy center-back Kevin Danso while full-back Kyle Walker-Peters will return to Tottenham.

A striker could also be on Ralph Hasenhuttl’s shopping list as Shane Long’s departure leaves him only with Danny Ings, teenage Michael Obafemi and 23-year-old Che Adams, who has yet to score a goal for the club.

Brighton: attacking alternatives

Graham Potter is likely to look to improve his attacking options as Premier League top scorer Glenn Murray turns 37th in September.

And while the club spends more than £ 36million on the attacking trio of Florin Andone, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Jurgen Locadia, none have established themselves despite the fact that academician Aaron Connolly has impressed and Jose Izquierdo is set to return after a long-term injury.

At the back, the club is strengthened by the return of well ratedexternal link Academy prospect Ben White after the 22-year-old central defender’s impressive loan game in Leeds this season.

West Ham: Out with the old ones?

With 10 players ages 32 and up through the end of June, West Ham seems to have a busy window ahead of them, although it’s not quite as bad as it seems.

Now that Javier Hernandez has already left, two of them out of contract and four goalkeepers, the main worry will be how long captain Mark Noble and Robert Snodgrass can continue at the highest level.

Keeping the hot perspective will also be a priority for David Moyes. In addition, Sebastian Haller has the only real striker to play more than 10% of the minutes this season.

Watford: Who’s on target?

Ben Foster and Heurelho Gomes will leave when their contracts end from today’s perspective. The goalkeepers will be Watford’s primary target (pun intended) while some seasoned defenders will have to be replaced.

The club could also start planning their life after their talisman captain Troy Deeney, who will turn 32 next month – an unenviable task given his importance over the past decade.

With only Crystal Palace playing an older XI average this season, Nigel Pearson could try adding some young players to the roster, with Ismaila Sarr the only young prospect close to the first team at the moment.

Bournemouth: Occupied window ahead

Regardless of whether Bournemouth stays up or down, they’ll likely be one of the busiest clubs, with seven players set to leave.

The loss of wingers Ryan Fraser and Harry Wilson will have the biggest impact on the starting XI, while the departure of some of the old guards who promoted the club in 2015 will leave a void in the squad as a whole.

While the Cherries have many talented young prospects, it will be interesting to see if Eddie Howe continues to rely on them so heavily to provide the depth and cover for the first team.

Aston Villa: Experience wanted

After I have to sign “many players with potential”external link Last summer, Dean Smith will be looking to gain some top notch experience this time around to lead a first team approaching the peak of his career.

Keeping star man Jack Grealish, with whom the midfielder is regularly linked, will obviously be the club’s biggest challenge a stepexternal link to Manchester United.

After long-standing injuries on New Year’s Day, the return of first-choice goalkeeper Tom Heaton and striker Wesley will reduce the need for major reinforcements in these positions.

Norwich: Keep the children

With relegation likely, the Canaries’ main role in the transfer window will be to prevent their crop of exciting young prospects from being torn away by bigger clubs.

Like Aston Villa counterpart Smith, Daniel Farke may choose to add some experience to capitalize on that potential. Only midfielder Kenny McLean plays more than 50% of the minutes among the players at their peak.

After eleven goals in the Premier League so far this season, striker Teemu Pukki should also be in demand, although only Josip Drmic and 19-year-old youth player Adam Idah would remain as options if he was eliminated.
