Five Under-21 players in the Championship who have Premier League potential

Brentford Griffin Park

There are some very talented young Championship players who are destined to play regular Premier League football one day. Here are five of the best.

Will Hughes

The Derby County midfielder goes about his job quietly at the base of their midfield but he has been one of their most important players this season and is a prolific chance creator (40). Hughes will surely be playing in the top flight sooner rather than later and has attracted interest from Liverpool in the past, per the Independent.

Nathan Redmond

Like Hughes, Redmond is an England Under-21 regular and has chosen a sensible career path, as he continues to receive regular game-time at Norwich. The winger is a very exciting prospect who has completed the third most dribbles (77) in the Championship this season.

Alex Pritchard

The on-loan Tottenham youngster is proving in this exciting promotion-chasing Brentford side that he is nearly ready to become a regular at White Hart Lane. Pritchard is the heartbeat of the Bees’ side and has created a staggering 90 chances for his teammates and scored eight times himself this season.

Alex Mowatt

Although Lewis Cook is regarded as Leeds United’s best prospect, Alex Mowatt has stolen all the headlines in recent weeks. Mowatt has scored three goals in five games from midfield, taking his season’s tally up to seven. He has also overtaken Cook (34) in the chance creation charts, with his total of 35, the highest of any player at Elland Road.

Jon Toral

Another promising Brentford loanee is Arsenal youngster Jon Toral, who is a product of Barcelona’s famed youth academy. The midfielder can play in a central or a wide area and his recent hat-trick against Blackpool showed off his undoubted potential.
