Here are three players who all have crucial seasons impending for Swansea City.
Swansea City were in the midst of a relegation dogfight for the majority of last campaign, sacking two managers in the form of Francesco Guidolin and Bob Bradley before Paul Clement came in and turned the side's fortunes around.
Next season the South-Wales club will be looking to consolidate their status as a Premier League team again and push forward to avoid any such dramas this time around.
As the squad lacks a huge amount of depth, all of Clement's players will need to hit the ground running. Here are three players that especially have points to prove:
#3 - Nathan Dyer
Dyer must feel like it is an eternity ago since he fortuitously gained a Premier League medal for his contribution to Leicester City's cause, and things are significantly different now.
Since returning from his loan spell at the King Power, Dyer has only featured in eight Premier League matches for The Swans. In fact, he has started just a total of three league games since the end of the 2014/15 season.
Dyer has been a Swansea player for eight years, but with consistent injuries and inconsistent form finds himself on the outskirts of the squad and needs a marked improvement in training and performances to force his way back into Clement's plans.
#2 - Ki Sung-yeung
After a successful loan spell at Sunderland in 2013/14 the South Korean international became a regular again at the Liberty Stadium.
He is a player that can show talent and enthusiasm but then sometimes seems to lack concentration and interest - as such he only started thirteen games last season and has fallen way down in the pecking order at central midfield.
New signing Roque Mesa, Leroy Fer, Tom Carroll and club legend Leon Britton are all ahead on current form, and Ki desperately needs to take his chances when given them or will more than likely be shipped out of the club.
#1 - Jefferson Montero
Ask any Swansea City fan and they will tell you the most frustrating player at the club is Jefferson Montero. The Ecuadorian international is unplayable on his day, with an array of dribbling skill and trickery.
However, 'his day' is an occurrence that has become more and more of a rarity. In-between horribly unfortunate injuries have been some of the winger's worst performances in a Swansea shirt - notably a game at West Brom in December which was particularly woeful.
Montero has competition from Narsingh and Routledge, but if he can somehow maintain his fitness and regularly find the form he is so very capable of, then he will not only keep that spot but make it his own for years to come.
