Most of the Premier League teams have been working tirelessly to improve their squads ahead of next season. We are likely to watch some of the best defenders in Europe next season playing in the English top flight league.

The 2022/23 season is likely to have some of the best centrebacks who will be the toughest to beat for every forward they face. Here are three tough English Premier League defenders to watch next season.

Virgil van Dijk

The 31-year-old has been one of the best central defenders in European football since he joined Liverpool. He has also been the best in the Premier League and has contributed to Liverpool's success in recent seasons.

Van Dijk has been a tough defender to beat for the forwards and strikers which has seen the Reds concede fewer goals in matches. He will still thrive next season and he has shown no signs of slowing down.

Ruben Dias

The 25-year-old gifted Portuguese center-back has emerged as an important player for Pep Guardiola at Manchester City in the last three seasons. He keeps on getting better at defending and has been the best defender at Manchester City.

Dias has not been an easy center-back to beat in the Premier League and he will continue doing well during the 2022-23 season.

Kalidou Koulibaly

The new Chelsea signing is one of the big names to join the Premier League this summer. There are a lot of expectations from Koulibaly this summer and he will restore Chelsea's defensive strength next season.

The 31-year-old Senegalese international has been one of the best defenders in football for years and has been dominating Serie A. He will be one of the toughest defenders to beat in England next season.
