TEN ‘Ligue 1 transfers’ Liverpool and Newcastle should sign

The French domestic league has become a hotbed for potential Premier League talent over the past few years, with Ligue 1’s athletic style providing physical players in the mould of the English top-flight, available at much cheaper prices in comparison to those already plying their trade in the Premiership.

While Arsene Wenger’s love of French players has always been well known, and indeed Arsenal‘s successes have been forged out of a crucial element of members of the France national team in their starting XI, Newcastle have more recently undergone a French revolution in the transfer market, bringing in the likes of Demba Ba, Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa and Moussa Sissoko to bolster the ranks at St. James’ Park.

No doubt, in the summer, the Premier League will once again look across the Channel in a bid to find some cheap talent that can improve their teams. We’ve compiled a Top Ten of Ligue 1 stars who would be a success should they arrive on English shores, with full details of any potential future transfer.
