ISL season 5: Influential foreign recruits

Arguably the most high-profile foreign recruit of the summer who recently turned out in his third FIFA World Cup in Russia in June. The Aussie will be pulling on the Jamshedpur FC colours after his contract ended with English football Championship Millwall in June. The former Everton forward has over 150 goals in club football and 50 strikes for the Socceroos. Photo: Special Arrangement

Lanzarote became the first midfielder in ISL history to breach the 10-goal mark for FC Goa where he formed a fearsome partnership up front with Ferran Corominas. In addition to his goals, he supplied six assists as the Gaurs entered the playoffs. The Spaniard will be keen to recreate a similar understanding with ATK's fellow new recruit Kalu Uche.

Chencho, who was an unknown quantity to Indian football, turned out to be a revelation after he led Minerva Punjab to the I-League crown last season. The Bhutanese forward registered seven goals and as many assists in 17 matches and was voted the best attacking player in the division. The 22-year-old will now join forces with one of the most feared attacking unit with last season's ISL runner-up Bengaluru FC. Photo: Hotstar screengrab

Tebar will be returning to Delhi for a second stint after a season with FC Pune City. In his two seasons in ISL, the Spaniard has proved instrumental in leading both the Dynamos and Pune City to the playoffs. New coach Josep Gombau will look to Tebar to pull the strings in the middle of the park which will enable his attacking talents to flourish. Photo: ISL/SPORTZPICS
