Best players in the Premier League outside the top six

talkSPORT takes a look at the most talented footballers who do not play for Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea or Arsenal

This transfer window is utterly bonkers.

Is Watford winger Richarlison a £50m player? No, of course not.

Everton are close to signing Richarlison for a huge fee

However, there are some players outside the top six who would be slightly more worthy of a big-money move.

talkSPORT takes a look at the best Premier League players who do not play for Man City, Man United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea or Arsenal.

Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)

Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)

Now, here’s a player who lives up to his price tag.

Crystal Palace value the winger at £70m and it’s easy to see why.

Zaha is statistically among Lionel Messi, Neymar and Eden Hazard as one of Europe’s elite dribblers.

Managers make entire game-plans around how to stop the flying Ivorian. Imagine if he was surrounded by players of his quality…

Marko Arnautovic (West Ham)

Marko Arnautovic (West Ham)

Another man who would fit into any top-six side.

Arnautovic can make things happen on his own, as he was often forced to at West Ham last season.

What’s more, he does it against the big teams. The Austrian’s first Hammers goal was a brilliant winner against Chelsea.

No wonder Manchester United are interested.

Harry Maguire (Leicester City)

Harry Maguire (Leicester City)

Preferred to Red Devils regulars Phil Jones and Chris Smalling for the Three Lions, England’s national treasure would stroll into Jose Mourinho’s defence.

His meteoric rise will surely carry him to a top-six club eventually and the 25-year-old’s composure on the ball is something United lack.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton)

Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton)

The Iceland international has already proved he can make it at the top. He was always superb for Tottenham but unfortunately for him, they have Christian Eriksen.

Sigurdsson should thrive under the style of Marco Silva next season because he certainly has the quality to justify his £45m price tag.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (Watford)

Abdoulaye Doucoure (Watford)

If someone told you there was a £50m player at Watford, your thoughts would probably turn to this man rather than Richarlison.

The central midfielder is as comfortable leading a counter attack from deep as he is scrapping to regain possession. He can do it all.

Pascal Gross (Brighton)

Pascal Gross (Brighton)

King of the assist. He created as many goals as Mesut Ozil last season.

The German’s creative brain and sensational right foot largely helped keep Brighton in the Premier League and had everyone wondering: why did no one else spot this guy?

Jamie Vardy (Leicester)

Jamie Vardy (Leicester)

The best centre-forward outside the top six? Almost certainly.

Vardy scored more goals than Romelu Lukaku, Roberto Firmino, Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata last season.

Ruben Neves (Wolves)

Ruben Neves (Wolves)

Neves playing in the Championship last season will forever be one of football’s great mysteries.

Porto’s youngest ever captain has a habit of scoring screamers and he could play in central midfield for most teams. In fact, he’s already done it in the Champions League.
