The French National Football League, Ligue 1 might not be as popular as the Premier League or La Liga but it has always been a host of some amazing talents and promising players in the world of football.

Players like Eden Hazard, N'Golo Kante, and Hugo Lloris have all started off with the Ligue 1 before getting the limelight in the Premier League. In fact, one of the biggest stars in football, Neymar Jr. also plays in the Ligue 1 with his club, Paris Saint-Germain.

As such, there are a whole bunch of players playing in the Ligue 1 who could become big assets to the Premier League clubs and lead them towards victory. Here is a list of five such Ligue 1 stars who could be proven brilliant signings for the PL clubs

#5 Florian Thuvian

SSC Napoli v Olympique de Marseille - UEFA Champions League
Florian Thuvian failed to impress during his spell at Newcastle United

One of the best Ligue 1 players this season, Florian Thuvian is the only player on this list to have a prior PL experience.

He joined Newcastle United from Marseille in 2015 but had failed to impress at the St. James Park and was sent back to Marseille on loan just after a year. He regained his lost form at his former club and they opted to sign him permanently in 2017.

Florian Thuvian is enjoying the best season of his career this term and has scored 16 goals along with 10 assists in just 29 Ligue 1 games.

His brilliant performances have caught the attention of many big clubs and with some big TV sponsorship deals and foreign investments inflating the transfer prices, we may see many big PL clubs bidding intensively for him in the summer.
