TOP 5 Africa Goals Scorers Of All Time In Europe Major Leagues | N0 1 Has Scored (114) PL Goals.

Have you ever wondered who the top five African goal scorers are? Well, wonder no longer because I've compiled this for you tonight in today's article.

1. Mohamed Salah

Salah has 114 Premier League goals, putting him in 21st place overall after passing Didier Drogba as the Premier League's all-time top African scorer earlier this season.

The attacker has soared to new heights at Anfield, where his goals have helped the Reds win the Premier League and the Champions League after struggling to make an impact at Chelsea.

How high can Salah climb the Premier League's all-time scoring rankings before leaving Liverpool? He has 17 goals this season and is playing at a high level.

2. Samuel Eto’o

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang The four-time African Footballer of the Year went on to have enormous success in La Liga with Barcelona after starting his career with Real Mallorca after being passed over by Real Madrid as a youth.

He won two Champions Leagues and three Spanish championships with Barcelona, including the Liga Golden Boot in 2005-06.

With 162 goals in La Liga, the Cameroonian striker ended 17th all-time in goals scored, ahead of Ferenc Puskas and Laszlo Kubala.

3. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

He's scored hat-tricks in four of Europe's major leagues for Arsenal, Saint-Etienne, and Borussia Dortmund, and is the only player this century to do so. For Arsenal, Saint-Etienne, and Borussia Dortmund, he has also scored triples.

Aubameyang won the Golden Boot in both the Premier League and the Bundesliga, but it was in Germany that he made the most impression, and he still holds the record for most African goals in Germany's top flight with 98.

4. George Weah

During his time with AC Milan, Weah became the all-time leading African scorer in Serie A, in addition to an impressive record in French football.

With the Rossoneri, he scored 46 goals and twice won Serie A, although he never won the Champions League throughout his time in Italy.

In the 1994-95 season, he was the top scorer in the UCL and was voted African Footballer of the Year three times.

5. Matthew Amoah

Ghana's Amoah scored 117 goals in the Dutch top flight for four different clubs, putting him just outside the top 40 scorers in Eredivisie history.

His most successful club was Vitesse Arnhem, but he also had stints with Fortuna Sittard, NAC Breda, Heracles Almelo, and SC Heerenveen.

Despite a brief transition to Borussia Dortmund in 2006, Amoah was part of the Ghana squad that reached the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup.
