Consecutive promotions and Hollywood star power could make Wrexham an attractive destination for Premier League players looking for a final flourish.

Wrexham’s promotion to League One continues their march up the divisions under the ownership of Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

Now many Premier League players could follow in the footsteps of Ben Foster, James McClean and Steven Fletcher to the Racecourse Ground.

Football finance expert Dr Rob Wilson told BonusCodeBets: “Wrexham could target Premier League players when they’re in League One, especially players who are nearing retirement, but it will come down to Profit and Sustainability Rules.”

With the new 15,000-seat stadium being built and the money being brought in by Welcome to Wrexham documentary, along with other big sponsorship deals, it would not be a surprise to see some household names heading to north Wales to join the stardust-laden revolution.

Here are a few potential targets for the Red Dragons....

James Tomkins

With almost 300 Premier League appearances to his name, Tomkins would certainly provide experience to bolster the Wrexham backline.

With only three substitute turnouts in the league for Crystal Palace this season, he seemingly has no place in Oliver Glasner’s future plans.

At 35 Tomkins perhaps only has a few years left playing and it seems unlikely that another top-flight club will snap him up, meaning that an EFL team like Wrexham could come in for him.

Jay Rodriguez

Rodriguez would certainly be a marquee signing for the Red Dragons, having scored 46 goals in the Premier League and 64 in the Championship during a prolific career.

With Burnley’s potential relegation from the top flight they may mean they have to sell some of their players and, at 34, Rodriguez’s future seems uncertain.

He has made 20 league appearances this season, scoring two goals, so is still a viable option for a struggling Clarets side and may consider the short journey from Lancashire to north Wales.

England international Rodriguez was born in Burnley, so prising him away from Turf Moor may prove an issue.

Scott Carson

England international Carson has found his place as Manchester City’s third-choice goalkeeper and has become one of the most decorated players in England.

Bringing the two-time Champions League winner to the Racecourse Ground may give him the opportunity to follow in Foster’s footsteps and have one final playing season.

Carson has not played regularly since the 2018/19 season for Derby County, but his experience would certainly help the Wrexham backline.

Daniel Jebbison

With Sheffield United seemingly on the brink of relegation they may have to sell one of their star assets. Canada international Jebbison’s career has stalled this year after a blood clot stopped him playing all season.

Dropping down a division to League One may prove to be Jebbison’s way back into regular football, if he can sort his health out first.

Signing the Premier League’s youngest-ever debutant goalscorer would be a coup for Phil Parkinson’s men.

Arthur Okonkwo

Perhaps the most likely signing is taking goalkeeper Okonkwo back from Arsenal, either on loan or permanently.

The 6ft 6ins shot stopper has been a star for Wrexham this term, recently being named in the League Two team of the season.

At 22 years old he still has a long way to go to become a top goalkeeper, but his time will be limited at the Emirates and another loan may seem the best option.

Could Reynolds and McElhenney persuade him to return to the Racecourse Ground?
