4) Florian Thauvin
The former Newcastle man has once again found his best form after a more than disappointing season with the Toons, which threatened his career. Signed from Marseille, Thauvin failed to find the net for Newcastle in thirteen Premier league appearances. He was sent back to Marseille on loan for the next two years, one of which coincided with Newcastle’s relegation from the Premier league. At Marseille though, Thauvin has had the two best years of his football particularly the last one where he ended the campaign with 25 goals and 13 assists, a return which has rightly earned him a place in Les Blues squad for Russia.
