Some of them on that list were dung in the PL.
Julio Cesar was some keeper, forgot he went to QPR, Oscar was also a player before he went to China in his early 20's

Coutinho or Firminho for me though

Not one serious top-class Brazilian is quoted here.

Ronaldinho, Ronaldo (the real Ronaldo), Rivaldo, Romario is on this list.

For such a top league, it seems they have never had the top Brazilians.

When you look at the best players from that neck of the woods none of these guys will be near it.

I really like Fernandinho - was central to much of Man City's success... having said that, Firmino is an absolute class act too!

Arsenal seemed to get the best out of their Brazilians in the early '00s Sylvinho and Edu were smashing players but Gilberto Silva outshone everyone, his commitment and consistency in the middle of the park was superb, In today's game hands down Fabinho at Liverpool, guy is rock solid.

of all the players in their prime there i'd go with Maicon, he was better than Dani Alves at both their peaks, but players to have actually performed in the PL its close between Fernandiho and Coutinho imo
