In his prime, at Juan Manuel Olivera, Al Wasl, striker. This was the first guy pursued by Diego Maradona when he became the coach of the Dubai-based club. Not as flashy as some others on this list, but all the tall Uruguayan, 30, has done throughout his career is score goals.

If he has someone to bring him the ball, he will score. Matias Delgado, Al Jazira, midfielder. Great football brain, and at 29 still in his prime, as more and more of the imports here are. Ricardo Oliveira, Al Jazira, striker.

Great speed and a nose for the net. He is 31, so he needs a good season to get another big contract. David Trezeguet, Baniyas, striker.
