Africans Who Are Top Scorers in Europe

Ducor Sports chronicles, in glowing details, all the stars from the continent making waves in various leagues in Europe.

Africans are leading the charts as far as the global game is concerned, especially in Europe. Ducor Sports chronicles, in glowing details, all stars from the continent making waves in various leagues in Europe.

Arsenal’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is our centre pick but we begin with Turkey where Senegal’s Mbaye Diagne is the big fish tormenting defenses in the Super Lig.


Taranga Lions’ gaffer Aliou Cisse will have no excuses to put out if he fails to include Diagne in his squad again after initially overlooking him for the World Cup. Loan spells at Ajaccio, Lierse, Al-Shabab, Westerlo tag his career since Juventus signed him in 2013. However, a breakthrough really came when he departed Chinese outfit Tianjin Teda for Kasimpasa who oversaw his drastic reform for the better. He scored 12 goals in 15 games the previous term and seems to have just continued from where he left off this season, netting 11 goals in 11 games, a statistic that towers goal-lord Cristiano Ronaldo’s 7-goal league feat.

Clubs are already locked in a tug-of-war over his signature despite having a four-year deal to see out.

The Senegalese could land a dream move to one of the Manchester clubs if he continues to drill oil in his scoring machine.

Baghdad Bounedijah: Even Algeria’s Baghdad Bounedijah betters Ronaldo when it comes to finding back of the net. There will be an argument over the league difference between the two. Of interest, however, is that the 26-year-old headlines the Qatar Stars League.


Mind-boggling should best describe the striker’s exploit- 16 straight goals in nine games. The story would have taken a varying twist when he pulled off 16 goals last season had he not picked up a troubling injury. Bounedijah has raked up an overall 59 goals in 44 games since his £ 3.5m move from Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel.

Frank Boli: Soon-to-be-capped Ivory Coast-born Frank Boli is one player turning heads in Scandinavia. Plying his trade in the Norwegian Premier League, his numbers are forcing global scouts to sit up and take notice. He’s on the verge of securing the league’s golden boot after scoring 15 goals in 26 appearances. The irony with his case is that, Stabaek, his employers, are on the verge of relegation and have no less than three games to float them to safety. Frank rifled in 13 goals for the same club four years ago prior to his short stint in Asia. Rosenborg, Norway’s wealthiest side, are one of the sides linked with his move.

Odion Ighalo: Super Eagles’ striker Odion Ighalo is, like last term, a hit with Chinese Super League club Changchung Yatei. The Nigeria international has fired in 21 goals in 27 matches, four shy of matching top scorer Wu Lei.


In the form he is, the erstwhile Watford man won’t look out of place should he opt on a return to the English Premier League.

Dame N’doye: The 33-year-old Senegalese is on a hot streak in the Danish Super League where he is fond of snatching the golden boot.


One of the highest earners there, the ex-Hull City front-man has notched in nine goals for joint table-topping Copenhagen.

Adeleke Akinola Akinyemi: This uncapped Nigerian is the second best scorer in Latvia’s top tier having scored 13 goals for Ventspril in spite of a recent transfer to Norway.


And finally, enter Pierre Emerick Aubameyang: 7 goals in ten games, eight of those as a starter for Arsenal. The €63.8M buy from Dortmund has scored none from the spot-kick. He is only three short of matching the ten he scored in the 13 games he’d achieved last season. He is one of the reasons for The Gunners’ upward trajectory.
