Ghoulam’s performances for Napoli have attracted the interest of Premier League clubs

The second name on the list is Algerian left-back Faouzi Ghoulam. Despite making a move to Napoli in the winter of 2014, Ghoulam is an unrecognisable name for many. However, the left-back has gained interest from teams such as Arsenal, Tottenham and even Bayern Munich after some of his performances for the Italian side.

The Algerian has assisted seven goals this season, with three of those being in just eight Champions League appearances, an impressive amount for a full-back. What this mainly shows is how much of a threat Ghoulam is on the attack despite only being a full-back. It also shows why Premier League clubs are interested in the Algerian.

Ghoulam is a rather tall full-back at 6ft 2, yet he is very agile and quick, making him extremely dangerous for opposition full-backs to deal with. Additionally, the 26-year-old is also very capable of doing his job defensively, suggesting his ability as a full-back is up there with the best in the world.
