The Bundesliga may be well known for the large crop of young talent emerging from its youth academies, but there are many top-class foreigners who have made their way in the German domestic league.
Treble-winners Bayern Munich have long relied on imported stars, with Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery, Javi Martinez, Mario Mandzukic, Dante and David Alaba among their key players. Dortmund have enjoyed a successful spell with Polish trio Robert Lewandowski, Jakub Blaszczykowski and Lukasz Piszczek in their ranks, and this season have looked abroad for reinforcements in the form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The aforementioned are just a few of the many foreign-born stars of the German domestic league. For a rundown of which imports to watch in the Bundesliga this season, click "Begin Slideshow."
