With the influence of Africa evident in all of Europe’s major leagues, and with African stars creating storylines and topping scoring charts across the continent, Bleacher Report’s African expert Ed Dove takes a look at five African stars who are lighting up Europe this season.
Demba Ba leads the Premier League scoring table, whilst Marouane Fellaini has arguably been the Prem’s standout star this term; Kwadwo Asamoah has settled terrifically at Juventus, whilst Wissam Ben Yedder, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bafé Gomis have been scoring goals for fun in France. Victor Wanyama also deserves a mention after impressing in Celtic’s Champions League run and being one of the continent’s most improved performers.
Whilst this quintet of players are all at different stages of their career playing for a myriad of different clubs and contributing in a number of different ways, all have been firmly in the headlines as their clubs have prospered due to their efforts.
Expect big things from this five in 2013.
