The Premier League has the potential to attract talent from all over the world. Many players travel to England to showcase their skills in front of the Premier League's global audience. Since the Premier League's inception, audiences have been spoiled with world-class stars from both the UK and abroad.
It's difficult to say who the best international player in the Premier League. There are a variety of candidates to consider, and everyone's preference would be different. I've decided to compile a list of my top 7 international imports who have appeared in the Premier League, the best foreign talent to grace England's hallowed turf.
7. Sergio Aguero
Man City and the Premier League have benefited greatly from the Argentine's presence. Aguero has 181 goals in 271 Premier League appearances. Since joining Atletico Madrid, he has built a track record that demonstrates his lethal ability.
Sergio will go down in history as a Manchester City legend and one of the best strikers in the Premier League's history. Aguero scored a landmark goal for the People, capturing the Premier League title for the first time, and going on to collect four Premier League winners medals. Aguero has one golden boot, seven players of the month honors, and five seasons of scoring 20 goals or more. Unfortunately for City, Aguero has been plagued by injuries this season, holding him out of the lineup. Regardless, Aguero will go down as one of the best Premier League players of all time.
6. Kevin De Bruyne
The next character is a city slicker. De Bruyne spent time at Chelsea but has made a name for himself at City. He is known as one of the best playmakers in the game, with an uncanny eye for a pass at times.
Kevin has 77 assists and 41 goals in 178 Premier League games. The Belgians will be in charge of the majority of the attacks in the city. De Bruyne is a two-time Premier League champion with City, as well as the 2019/20 season's Player of the Year. De Bruyne will be key if City also wins the quadruple this season, which would cement his place in history even further.
5. Didier Drogba
Drogba is one of the best African players to ever play in the Premier League. He is, in my view, the best African player we have seen in the English Premier League. He knew where he needed to be as he moved forward, and he had speed and power. Most notably, he played with a smile on his face during the game.
Drogba was taken to England by Jose Mourinho when he joined Chelsea. When Mourinho joined Chelsea, he had a plethora of transfer options, but he simply told the board, "I want Drogba." Jose put his faith in Drogba, and it paid off. Drogba won four Premier League titles and two Golden Boot awards during his career. In 254 Premier League appearances, he scored 104 goals. Drogba's goals-per-match ratio isn't the best in the world. But he is among the best in the premier league.
4. Vicent Kompany
If one man can be said to embody a club's age, Kompany is that man for Man City's 2010-2020 squad. Kompany began his career as a midfielder, but he quickly switched to center back and has never looked back. Kompany was a leader on and off the field for a team that was beginning to dominate English football.
Kompany left City as a four-time Premier League champion and the 2011/12 season's player of the year winner. The fact that a defender won the Player of the Season award speaks volumes about Kompany's impact on this City squad. Even in his later years, when injuries limited his playing time, his presence on the field would often drag City to crucial wins.
3. Eden Hazard
Hazard's arrival was a significant coup for Chelsea, demonstrating the club's clout in Europe. Eden had some options when he left Lille, but he ultimately chose Chelsea. During his time at Chelsea, Hazard lit up the Premier League. The Belgian scored 85 goals in 245 appearances for Chelsea. Hazard was so important to Chelsea's 2014/15 title win that he was named player of the year for that season.
Eden won two Premier League titles, one Player of the Season trophy, and two Player of the Month awards during his time at Chelsea. During his time at Stamford Bridge, Hazard also scored some memorable goals.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo
It's difficult to leave CR7 off the list. Some might argue that he was still developing at United, but he was unplayable in the final years. When he first arrived in the 2003/04 season, there were a lot of concerns about him. He was a very different player by the 2006/07 season. To contend with the physicality of the English game, Ronaldo had bulked up. That season, he scored 17 goals, and the following season, he scored 31 goals.
His time at United was gilded with honors, as it had been for the majority of his career. One Golden Boot, two Player of the Season awards, three Premier League titles, and four Player of the Month awards. In 196 Premier League appearances, Ronaldo scored 84 goals and added 34 assists.
1. Theirry Henry
Arsenal's French revolution has produced yet another player. Thierry Henry was a winger who later became a striker who called Highbury home. Henry, like his French counterpart Vieira, has won the World Cup and the European Championship. Henry was a member of Arsenal's invincible squad, winning four golden boots, two players of the season trophies, two Premier League titles, and two Golden Boots. Henry was the driving force behind Arsenal's success in the Premier League, scoring 175 goals in 258 appearances for the Gunners.
Henry is regarded as one of the greatest strikers in Premier League history. He is one of the best foreign players in Premier League history because of his influence on Arsenal.
This list will change in the coming years. The effect De Bruyne has had on Man City could propel him even higher on the list. If Liverpool's success continues in the coming years, players like Virgil Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah could break into the top 7. In the coming years, there will undoubtedly be another influx of foreign talent to the Premier League.
