The 2016/2017 season across leagues in Europe has reached its tail end. There is the need to do some checks on the African attackers who ply their trade for clubs in the top European leagues. Not many African attackers have the opportunity of leading the attack of their various European clubs, so the ones who do, and carve niches for themselves in those positions whilst doing so deserve a mention.

We have taken a look at 7 of the major leagues in Europe and we have emerged with some names. Some of these players are very popular figures worldwide due to their contributions to their sides while others are relatively unknown

Across the top 7 European leagues, we have selected the top scoring Africans. However, the African continent is not represented in the Dutch Eredivisie based on attacking numbers.  We have six African players, namely;

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane, Moussa Marega, Steve Mounie and Kevin-Prince Boateng.  Let’s see their numbers for their various clubs.
