Internationals stars

The biggest name on our list is without a doubt Fabio Coentrao. The former Real Madrid and Portugal international was once considered as one of the leading left full-backs in the world. At the age of 31 he has left Rio Ave after he only joined them last year. Coentrao will be – without a doubt – one of the more interesting targets in FM20.

Another interesting player is former AC Milan and Croatian international Ivan Strinic. He even participated in the 2018 World Cup final, which was lost to France (4-2). He left the Rossoneri this summer after joining them from Sampdoria on a free transfer in 2018. Strinic will be a player who is good enough to play in one of the bigger leagues and could become an ideal experienced back-up player.

Former Premier League stars

The list also shows several former Premier League stars. Swedish international Martin Olsson is the highest player on the list, making 197 Premier League appearances. We also have Alan Hutton (151), Johan Djourou (99), Alexander Buttner (13) and several former Chelsea players: Wallace and Slobodan Rajkovic.
