We have endeavoured to compile a list of the world’s most talked-about players – the most newsworthy players who, by definition, are the most important. We started by drawing up a list of the key players by league – starting with 50 each for the leading leagues in Europe (England, Germany, Spain), 40 for France and Italy, between 15 and 25 for middle-ranking leagues, and ending with between five and 10 for smaller leagues. We then added players who were important figures for their national sides and in their respective regions.

TAGS:
Erik LAMELA – Tottenham/Argentina/04/03/1992

Scorer of spectacular “rabona” goals and seen as one of Argentina’s brightest hopes, despite his lack of starts for Spurs.

Ezequiel LAVEZZI – PSG/Argentina/03/05/1985

Right-sided forward who has not had the best of seasons at PSG but could attract huge attention if he comes on the transfer market.
