While it may not still be the undisputed best division in world football, the English Premier League still offers a unique brand of grace, technique and unremitting pace and physicality - a combination difficult to find elsewhere.
On the final day of this summer's transfer window, Arsenal - who currently sit proudly atop of the Premier League after a period of immensely strong form - shocked the footballing fraternity by completing a deal to sign German playmaker Mesut Ozil from La Liga giants Real Madrid.
Such a move was largely unprecedented, given that it signified one of the very first occasions that a genuinely world-class player had seemingly decided to come to this country from abroad whilst at the very height of their considerable powers.
Ozil's important contribution to the Gunners' recent success story got us thinking here at GMS - which other players should follow suit and fearlessly attempt to cement a legacy in the Premier League.
With that in mind, here GMS looks at eight players who really should come and test themselves in the fast and delightfully furious world of Premier League football at some point during their careers - for different reasons.
