The 2019/20 Golden Ball winner, Hugo Boumous has without doubt been one of the best foreign players in the history of ISL, with the Frenchman leading Mumbai City FC to the league title last season.

It came as a surprise that they let the midfielder leave and their loss has been the ATK Mohun Bagan's gain as he is a difference maker in the center of the park.

2. Igor Angulo (Mumbai City FC) - 9.05 rating

Igor Angulo was brilliant for FC Goa last season, scoring 14 goals in just 21 appearances for them, with the 37-year-old moving to Mumbai City FC for the 2021/22 campaign.

Having played for Athletic Bilbao in the past, the Spaniard will no doubt add extra firepower to Mumbai's attack.

3. Vladimir Koman (Chennaiyin FC) - 8.49 rating

Vladimir Koman was signed by Chennaiyin FC earlier in the season and he has already proved his worth to them by scoring the winner in their opening game against Hyderabad FC.

The Hungarian who can play both as an attacking midfielder and a winger, is an experienced professional - having represented the Hungarian national squad in the past.

4. Vishal Kaith (Chennaiyin FC) - 8.37 rating

A goalkeeper who is seen as the future of Indian football, Vishal Kaith was signed by Chennaiyin FC this season after spending three years at Pune City FC.

The 25-year-old is a key proponent of the sweeper-keeper style of play, and is considered by many to be the best goalkeeper in the country.

5. Adrian Luna (Kerala Blasters FC) - 8.29 rating

Signed on a two-year deal by Kerala Blasters FC, Adrian Luna has already showed glimpses of his talent by becoming the club's first ever goalscorer in the Durand Cup and providing an assist for their second goal in their 4-2 loss to ATK Mohun Bagan in their opening game.

Capped by Uruguay at the Under-20 level, the 29-year-old could well be the key for Blasters as the season progresses.
