5. Gonzalo Higuain – Inter Miami CF
Gonzalo Higuain may be one of the most famous strikers in modern Serie A and La Liga history. This is why his decision to join David Beckham’s Inter Miami FC is a significant one. The transfer is also a signal of the club’s ambition.
The 33-year-old Higuain still has a market value of 10 million euros. He arrived at Inter Miami on a free deal. So far he has scored 3 goals in 12 games for his team and has certainly helped grow interest in the MLS as a whole.
4. Alejandro Pozuelo – Toronto FC
Alejandro Pozuelo joined Toronto FC in 2019 after a respectable career in Europe. The 29-year-old Spaniard previously played for the likes of Betis Sevilla, Swansea, Rayo Vallecano, and Genk.

Josef Martinez is one of the famous players in South American football. He has been playing for Atlanta United since 2017. During this time he has managed a remarkable 73 goals in 86 matches.

Carlos Vela has been the face of MLS football for years now. A superstar in the U.S.A., the 32-year-old has managed 52 goals in 68 appearances for Los Angeles FC.
