Alan Judge has been one of the best players in the Championship this year, and has been instrumental in Brentford’s recovery under manager Lee Carsley.
The Bees had an incredibly successful season last year under Mark Warburton, and finished in the play-offs before losing to Middlesbrough in the semi-finals.
Instrumental to that success was their fast-flowing attacking football which ripped defences to shreds, with the likes of Judge, Jota, Alex Pritchard, and Andre Gray the primary tormentors.
Sadly, Warburton left the club after a disagreement with chairman Matthew Benham, and the club also lost some of their key attacking players, with Pritchard going back to Tottenham Hotspur, and Gray moving north to Burnley in a big money move. Jota has also been injured for a large chunk of this season.
At the start of the season under new boss Marinus Dijkhuizen, the Bees struggled and he subsequently lost his job.
But since the appointment of Carsley, Brentford have strung together a decent run of results, and look like genuine play-off contenders again.
Judge’s form was integral to this, scoring a handful of goals and getting plenty of assists.
He won the Player of the Month award for October and has been touted for a Premier League move. Renowned for his wicked shot and excellent pace and control of the ball, he could be an excellent addition to any struggling Premier League team, but Brentford are unlikely to let there star man go.
Here, FootballLeagueWorld writer Michael Hasan takes a look at five Premier League clubs who could sign Judge in January.
