Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31874088 A maker's mark A+maker%27s+mark Premier League

While we’re not quite sure whether Gareth Bale will be in the Barclays Premier League next season, you can be sure that the next ten footballers will and provide further excitement that we're accustomed to seeing from England's top-flight. Join us as FOX Soccer highlights the ten players to watch during the upcoming Premier League campaign:

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31874091 Luis Suarez, Liverpool Luis+Suarez%2C+Liverpool+ Premier League

Suarez is undeniably one of the most talented forwards in international soccer. His antics on and off the field, unfortunately, manage to steal headlines and overshadow his gifts. At just 26, Suarez managed to score 23 goals for Liverpool in 33 appearances last season. Powerful, pacey, technically gifted, and entering his prime, his quality enhances any team he plays for. The only question, then, is who will we play for?

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31878308 Wilfried Zaha, Manchester United Wilfried+Zaha%2C+Manchester+United Premier League

For years, rumors have circulated around potential signings by Manchester United. For the most part, the gossip has not materialized into much, with the club slowly becoming notorious for ignoring problem areas of the club. New signing Wilfried Zaha, could provide an offensive spark to a United side that sorely needs it. While most pundits agree that he’ll be slowly fazed into the first team, he has impressed during summer friendlies and seems as though he could establish himself into the first team. Expect Zaha to enter into David Moyes' immediate plans as the Red Devils seek to repeat as Premier League champions.

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31878307 Roberto Soldado, Tottenham Roberto+Soldado%2C+Tottenham+ Premier League

Roberto Soldado is a grinder; a tough, strong forward who will battle for 90 minutes without any sort of hesitation. His instinctive eye for goal led him to score 24 goals in 35 La Liga games for Valencia last season. With Gareth Bale's potential move aware from White Hart Lane, Tottenham will undoubtedly turn to the Spanish striker for reference and leadership in the final third. And let's not forget, Tottenham has lacked a quality forward for quite some time. Soldado could be the player to take them to the next level.

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31874096 Wilfried Bony, Swansea City Wilfried+Bony%2C+Swansea+City Premier League

Despite just coming off of a historic season in which they won the League Cup and qualified for the Europa League, Swansea City did not choose to sit on their laurels during the off-season. Rather, the Swans paid a club-record £12m to bring in the Ivorian international. Expectations are high for Bony, who scored 32 goals in 32 games for Eredivisie club Vitesse last season. With a potential partnership with last year's relevation Michu, Bony could prove the force that drives Swansea further up the table, and into regular contention for the Europa League.

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31874095 Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea Romelu+Lukaku%2C+Chelsea Premier League

While Chelsea were floundering in their search for a consistent striker to replace club legend Didier Drogba last season, one of their own products, Lukaku, was busy thrashing the Premier League while on loan with West Bromwich Albion. Only 20, Lukaku tallied 17 goals in 35 appearances for West Brom and seems like the prototypical forward Jose Mourinho absolutely adores in attack. If the Belgian starlet can notch that many goals with West Brom, how many will he score with Chelsea? Premier League defenders beware!

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31874094 Philippe Coutinho, Liverpool Philippe+Coutinho%2C+Liverpool Premier League

Joining Liverpool from Inter Milan during last winter's transfer window, most outside observers expected Coutinho to be a long-term project, a prospect for the future. But in just 13 matches with the Anfield club, Coutinho was a revelation, playing central in the success of Lvierpool’s second half surge. With three goals and seven assists in just 13 games last season, there’s no telling how well he could do given a full season as the Brazilian hopes to win Luiz Felipe Scolari's attention for next year's World Cup.

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31874093 Edin Dzeko, Manchester City Edin+Dzeko%2C+Manchester+City Premier League

Since joining Manchester City, Dzeko has played a secondary role behind much vaunted forwards Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli. With their departures from Etihad, however, and the introduction of a manager who seems to prefer his style in Manuel Pellegrini, this could be the season that Dzeko takes the Premier League by storm to become the striker that tortured defenses at VfL Wolfsburg seasons ago.

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31874090 Gerard Deulofeu, Everton Gerard+Deulofeu%2C+Everton Premier League

A product of Barcelona’s La Masia academy, Everton fans should consider themselves lucky to have the opportunity to watch Deulofeu next season, a player tipped by many to be a future star for the Spanish national team. He may not play often, taken on loan to increase Everton’s depth, but should he impress in his first few outings, there’s no telling how quickly he could fulfill his potential and seal a future full time move at or away from Barcelona.

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31874089 Jozy Altidore, Sunderland Jozy+Altidore%2C+Sunderland Premier League

The prodigal son of American soccer, this season will make or break Jozy Altidore’s career. Will he rise to the challenge of one of the world’s most competitive leagues, or fall back into bad habits that saw him flee Hull City in 2010? Recent successes with AZ Alkmaar suggest the former, but anything less than a successful season could prove disastrous for his new club Sunderland and USA mananger Jugen Klinsmann to say the very least.

Premier League 433 43 Premier League 2013-14: Players to watch 31878306 Wayne Rooney, Manchester United Wayne+Rooney%2C+Manchester+United Premier League

OK, so rumors are still circulating as to where Rooney will end up, but without question, expectations will be high no matter what colors he wears. Will he be able to replicate the form that had many labeling him as one of the most complete forwards in the world, or will being disgruntled hamper his talents? Whatever the outcome, we expect Rooney to remain in England and continue to punish Premier League defenses.
