That Cristiano Ronaldo, eh? Not only is he a very good footballer… he's Premier League proven. 

Those three little words seem to pop up for every new signing who's managed to cut the mustard before. Arsenal's splurge on English talent this summer has come with rubber stamp of these players having cut it in the Prem - well, Aaron Ramsdale's been relegated from it twice - while Manchester City opted to spent nine figures on a guy who's been arguably the league's most exciting playmaker. 

And then there are those players who step up from lower leagues. They might not have proven themselves at the very top of football on these shores but they've faced the rough and tumble of good old fashioned English football.

Well, what about those who haven't? We've listed out the top 20 stars according to Transfermarkt to have joined the Premier League this season, who have never played in England before - so that excludes Jadon Sancho, who's been at an English club, despite never getting first-team minutes.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
