1 France

Ladies and gentlemen the country that has exported the highest number of players besides, of course England is France. The Frenchmen love the premier league. That is not the only reason,France produces one of the best football talents on the planet hence why clubs in England buy them.

Like I said, France has graced the premier league with numerous top talent but for me the most outstanding ones are Henry(Arsenal), Cantona(Man United), Makelele(Chelsea), and Vieira(Arsenal).

Mine is Eric Cantona. Let me know who is your best foreign player ever to play in the EPL as it celebrates its 30th birthday.
