Published 13 Comments

Having enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence following its creation back in 1992, the Premier League has developed into arguably the best football division in the world.

Although it is often renowned across the globe for its quick pace and uncompromising physicality, the English top-flight has also boasted a number of mesmerising and highly-accomplished attacking talents.

Yet, despite the Premier League's lofty reputation, an enormous proportion of players generally considered to have been some of football's very best stars over recent years have never played a single fixture within it.

Here, GMS counts down - in order - the 10 best players never to have flashed their considerable brilliance in the Premier League.

Please feel free to leave your thoughts on our selections. Do you agree with the order? Are these the best players never to have played in the English top-flight?
