Euro 2020 will feature players from clubs all over Europe this summer. How many players a club sends to a major international tournament is a bragging right, especially if that number is north of 10.

Players here are classed as being at the club they finished the 2020/21 club season with, so any player one loan is counted for that club, rather than their parent club. Any player who has already pre-emptively agreed a summer transfer - for example, David Alaba to Real Madrid, or will be leaving as a free agent - is listed with the club where they still have a contract until 30 June.

Here's a look at which clubs have the most players going to Euro 2020 this summer.


16. Napoli - 8 players
