Well, this next linked player certainly fits that bill at the least.
Joachim Andersen joined Fulham on loan this season and he has been absolutely colossal at the back for them, even being named club captain. He has excellent commanding abilities and leadership.
The on loan Lyon defender is a wanted man, according to Danish publication BT Sporten, and Chelsea are named alongside Tottenham, Leicester City, and Manchester United as the four Premier League clubs interested in signing him this summer.
The Danish international reportedly wants to leave France this summer and stay in the Premier League.
