Marinus Dijkhuizen has revealed he has been most impressed by Toumani Diagouraga, Andre Gray, Jota and David Button in the Brentford squad.
Diagouraga was a revelation at Griffin Park in the season just gone; coming in from the cold against Watford at the end of September before going on to be named supporters' player of the year.
Gray signed for the club from Luton Town and scored 18 goals in all competitions and led the line superbly.
Jota wowed supporters with his wand of a left foot and has already written his name into folklore with two last minute strikes against Fulham.
Button was the unsung hero of the squad last season, appearing in every league game and winning Brentford more points than his rare errors cost them.
The new Bees head coach name-checked that quartet in his opening press conference and, while he is keen to give every player a fair go, the fact he named players signifies he has liked what he has seen from them.
He said: "There are a lot of quality players like Toumani, Gray, Jota, a good goalkeeper in Button. When you become a new coach, it’s always a change for everybody.
“I am open-minded. I will give everyone a chance. I have seen two games, I have no opinion about everyone, I hope they can come in, on the first of July. They all have a chance.
“Whether you are 18 or 30 it doesn’t matter, the best players will play. It’s a good start for everybody.”
He added: “I want to give lead to the team. I want to talk to the players, get feedback from them. I want to be open-minded, and close to my players.
“The football in the Netherlands is maybe more tactical. I hope we can find a mix of English and Dutch football and make a difference like that.”
Brentford won't be making any major stylistic changes as Dijkhuizen likes a 4-3-3 formation.
Last season, Mark Warburton played a 4-2-3-1 formation, which was similar to this formation but the Dutchman is prepared to change style in order to win.
