Transfer news: Nine players who could leave relegated Premier League clubs, including Ryan Sessegnon and Aaron Mooy
When a side suffers relegation from the Premier League, they are expected to battle their way through the Championship and back into the top-flight minus their best players.
Teams that get relegated are usually deserving of being demoted to the second-tier, but that is not always the case for certain players, who have either given their all to the cause or are simply better than playing a level below.
Huddersfield and Fulham have both endured abject seasons and their descent has been confirmed in the last few days.
Here, talkSPORT.com takes a look at the 10 best players who could get moves this summer.
LATEST PREMIER LEAGUE NEWS
Terence Kongolo – Huddersfield
The former Feyenord and Monaco defender has been one of the club’s most consistent performers despite their difficult campaign.
The Dutch international cost the Terriers a club-record £17.5million and has been linked with a move to Fenerbahce.
Andre Schurrle – Fulham
Back in February, the German international denied claims he would leave the club if they went down, but two months on and his mindset could very well be a different one.
He signed a two-year loan deal away from Borussia Dortmund but the ex-Chelsea attacker is better than the Championship and could even be sent back early by the Cottagers.
Aaron Mooy – Huddersfield
In his two seasons in the Premier League, Mooy has shown he is capable of cutting it in the top-flight and the rumours have already started to circulate as to where the Australian could end up next.
Newcastle and West Ham are both reportedly interested in the midfielder who, while quieter this campaign, is able to be a game-changer.
Ryan Sessegnon – Fulham
Tottenham are long-term admirers of the 18-year-old and could very well come back for him this summer. It has been something of a reality check season for Sessegnon, who had a fantastic 2017/18 season to get Fulham promoted, but has found life in the Premier League more challenging.
Karlan Grant – Huddersfield
While he may have only joined the club back in January, the former Charlton forward has already netted three times in just seven appearances and looks to have adapted well to life in the Premier League.
His brace against West Ham was impressive and Huddersfield would be better off had Grant arrived earlier in the season.
Aleksandar Mitrovic – Fulham
Two relegations with two different clubs, Mitrovic, understandably, may not want another season of Championship football.
His 10 goals in the Premier League is not a bad return considering he is playing in such a poor side and the Serbian is being considered by Liverpool, who see him as cover, while Everton want an upgrade on Cenk Tosun.
Mitrovic has scored 10 times this season
Calum Chambers – Fulham
The on-loan Arsenal man has thrived this season as a defensive midfielder and looks a class above some of the players around him.
Signed a new long-term deal with the Gunners last year and is set to head back to the Emirates but could have done well enough to grab a transfer to another top-flight side.
Ryan Babel – Fulham
Signed a short term deal with the club and has looked sharp in spells, but it has not been enough.
The Dutchman scored on Tuesday night against Watford in the 4-1 defeat and it is certain he will be at another club in the summer with Championship football not on his radar.
Alfie Mawson – Fulham
It has been an injury hit season for the former Swansea defender, who is a very capable operator at the back on his day and showed this in the last couple of years.
This is his second relegation in as many campaigns and while he could very well remain at the club, there is every chance Mawson could move on this summer.
