Euro 2016: 3 Frenchmen we need to see in the Premier League

With France making the final of Euro 2016 in their home country, I thought I'd take a look of 3 of their most valuable players who don't play in the Premier League at the moment that we would love to see. The French team is of course full of talent so we will be taking a look at some of those who would fair well in the Premier League.

1. Antoinne Griezmann.
Star of the show with regards to goals so far, he looks certain to win the golden boot of Euro 2016, and is in inspired form. His goal scoring has hugely helped France get to the stage they are at in the competition. His pace and work rate are his best attributes and it certainly looks like he would be able to adapt his talents to the Premier League. I think he'd suit Arsenal best out of the Premier League clubs, maybe Tottenham if they were looking. No matter what side he goes to he is certainly a player who needs to at some point be playing in the Premier League, just so we can all see what he is capable of. He would be a fantastic addition as he would be immediately competing to be one of the best players in the League, which would improve the performances of other contenders as they put their heart and soul into being the best.

2.Paul Pogba
A move which may well be happening. Paul Pogba's move from Juventus to the Premier League has been long awaited and this summer could finally be on the cards. A fantastic young talented midfielder with many skills under his belt. He is linked with Manchester United and would certainly liven up their particularly dull midfield. His ability to pick out a pass as well as having an incredible shot is something he can adapt to the Premier League to meet the fast pace. Although he hasn't really hit his full potential yet and with the Premier League being highly competitive, he may not be as good as everyone thinks he would be. There is no doubt however that he has talent and a move to the Premier League could be the best way to adapt that talent and build on his potential.

3 Blaise Matuidi.
Another incredible midfielder who would be marvellous in the Premier League, is PSG's Matuidi. The defensive midfielder is particularly strong with his high work rate making him one of the most energetic midfielders in the France side. The reason he needs to come to the Premier League is to build on this and be breaking down some of the best players in the world who are playing in the Premier League. With the potential exit of Nemanja Matic at Chelsea I feel Matuidi would be the perfect replacement and would fit in well at Chelsea. His ability to breakdown play and find key passes would be essential next to a more creative Cesc Fabregas and the pairing could be a great one.

France look favourites to win this years European Championships, but looking on from that it would be great to see some of their squad gracing the Premier League next season or in seasons to come. Hopefully some moves go through which improve the Premier League, as it needs a return to former glory, and some of the players coming in could aid towards that.
