Right wing: Sanju Pradhan
Pradhan has already played under Habas at Kolkata and they now reunite at Pune City after Pradhan's spell with NorthEast United last season. The 27-year-old is a versatile player and can play in midfield and also on the wings as Habas will look to deploy him on the flanks with the Stallions having many options in midfield.
Left wing: Jesus Tato
The former Barcelona academy player can be said as one of the most exciting signing for this edition of the ISL. Tato is another versatile player who can play anywhere behind the striker and also as a striker when needed. Habas is expected to start him on the wing with Gudjohnsen and Zurdo expected to be the strikers for this season. Tato and Ralte can form a deadly partnership for the Stallions on the left flank.
Striker: Eidur Gudjohnsen
The 38-year-old is expected to provide firepower and much-needed goals for Pune City. Expectations will be high from the former Chelsea and Barcelona man as he and Diego Forlan are expected to go head to head for the golden boot. He featured for Iceland in the Euros and though he missed Pune's practice game last week, Gudjohnsen is expected to start against Mumbai City FC in the first game.
