England’s Future Number 10s

England’s future number 10’s

Jack Grealish

Even though Aston villa are in 17th place in the Premier League, Jack Grealish is in the form of his life. With fewer than half of the season still to play, the young England U21 is trying to save his boyhood club from relegation for a second time whilst he has been at the club.

With 7 goals and 5 assists so far this season, it’s hard to see him not in Gareth Southgate’s squad at the Euros with the form that he is in. With that form, many transfer rumours have been going around with Manchester United apparently wanting the midfielder.

Since getting Aston villa promoted in 2019, his transfer value has risen from 22 million to 32 million. He is still only 24 so he still has a lot of time to improve.

Graelish’s international career started with Ireland. He looked to be a great player in the future for Irelands u21 and 17 teams. After 13 appearances he moved on into England’s set up having had 7 appearances and 2 goals for England’s u21 team. he has not being given the opportunity to continue his England career ever since his first relegation with Aston Villa, however. Now that he is back in the Premier League and playing well, he should figure into the England set up.

James Maddison

In 2016 Leicester City surprisingly won the Premier League. While there is nothing sembling a challenge to Liverpool who has all but won the league, there is a debate that the team this year is actually better than the one that won. The main part of that is because of James Maddison.

Joining the club from Norwich City in 2018 after 14 goals and 8 assists in the Championship, he looked like a Premier League player ever since. This year so far he has racked up 6 goals and 3 assists, leading his team to 3rd in the table.

Already having played for the England senior team once and nine times for England u21, it seems likely to call him up. And being just 23, he seems definitely one that could improve in the future.

Mason Mount

Mason Mount has had one of the best season starts in his career after his switch to Chelsea. He is only 21 and already showing the league his capability.

Going through Chelsea’s academy was hard for Mount. He was sent out on loan twice, first to Holland team Vitesse and then to Derby County where he linked up with Chelsea legend Frank Lampard. This meeting changed his career when he came to manage Chelsea in 2019 when the Chelsea legend gave him a chance in the first team.

He started to show his skills from the start and his form has been consistent halfway through the season. Mount has bagged 5 goals and 4 assists. He is one to watch and has a bright England career ahead of him. Having played the most England football out of the lot, he has featured in six senior games, four u21 games, seventeen u19 games, five u18 games, and nine u17 games. Having scored 14 times for his country, he is one for the future.
