What If The Premier League Had A Draft Day

With the NFL draft just a day away, what would the English Premier League be like if teams had the chance to draft any player they wish.

Cardiff: Luis Suarez

Undoubtedly the most in-form player in the league at the moment and with Cardiff the second lowest scoring side this year, the Bluebirds would definitely snap up the Uruguayan with the first pick.

Fulham: Vincent Kompany

Not all teams are built around superstar centre forwards and with a defence which has given up a whopping 83 goals in 37 games this year, Fulham would look to boost their defence with the addition of the Belgian defensive rock.

Norwich: Sergio Aguero

If Aguero had a fully-fit season this year he might be contending with Suarez for the No.1 pick. He’s still probably the second best striker in the Prem and has many more prolific years ahead of him.

Sunderland: Eden Hazard

The main attraction to Hazard for Sunderland this early in a draft, aside from his rapid pace and flair, is his age. At just 23 the relegation battlers would benefit for years from the in-form winger.

West Brom: Yaya Toure

Would have gone earlier in the draft if he was a few years younger, but never-the-less he would get the job done and transform a team which has struggled near the relegation zone in recent years.

Hull: Romelu Lukaku

The Yorkshire outfit’s top scorer this season has accrued just six goals! While a sturdy defence has kept Hull’s head above the relegation zone the presence of Lukaku on the team’s front line would make all the difference.

Aston Villa: Mezut Ozil

Villa have pace on the wings and a competent forward in Benteke but a player of Ozil’s talent spreading the play in the midfield would be a great addition.

Crystal Palace: Christian Benteke

Tony Pulis has built a strong defence at Palace but the club is missing a force up top, Benteke would fit in well as a player who can be a target man and produce much-needed goals.

Stoke: Wayne Rooney

Rooney and Crouch up front could be a formidable partnership up front for Stoke, 20-something goals from the England forward could boost Stoke to Europa League contention.

Southampton: Gary Cahill

The Saints already boast a young defence, and with a good selection of players further up the field, a young John Terry-like centre half would help Southampton compete with the best of them.

Manchester United: Steven Gerrard

Since the loss of Scholes, there has been a gap in United’s central midfield and with Vidic and Rio on the way out, they could do with a real leader to get them back to the top.

Tottenham: Daniel Sturridge

With Soldado a first-year flop, Spurs will be looking for a different kind of forward to join them and Sturridge brings pace and clinical finishing to the table.

Everton: Alvaro Negredo

Via telegraph.co.uk

Lukaku has been in fine form for Everton, but beyond the Belgian striker who else do they have up top? Negredo would be a fine player to have in front of Everton’s strong midfield.

Manchester City: John Terry

He may be nearing the end of his career but for City to line up with Terry and Kompany at the back would give them a defence to match the rest of their team.

Liverpool: Branislav Ivanovic

Liverpool have arguably the best strikeforce in the Premiership, but with a defence in need of an addition, Ivanovic could help protect those valuable three-goal leads.
