African strikers are excelling in European leagues with Europe’s top divisions nearing their conclusion, we take a look at some of the continent’s best marksmen. As the European leagues come to an end.
Victor Osimhen is an African Striker, as his second full season with Napoli came to a close, Osimhen had 14 goals for the Napoli, fully realizing the potential he had shown in portions during his first season in southern Italy.
The striker may not have yet proven his worth after Napoli paid €70 million to get him from LOSC Lille, but they might be ready to cash in on their asset soon.
Arsenal are reportedly mulling a bid for the striker, who scored four goals in Nigeria’s recent 10-0 win against Sao Tome e Principe, but could Manchester United or Tottenham Hotspur try to sabotage any deal?
Despite being linked with a move to Manchester United to join his Ajax tutor Erik ten Hag, Haller’s next destination is looking increasingly likely to be Borussia Dortmund.
While Haller may be a good Erling Haaland replacement, could Ten Hag persuade the Cote d’Ivoire African striker to take over at Old Trafford?
Haller may feel he still has a point to make in the Premier League after a dismal period at West Ham United, despite his 21 league goals and 11 in the Champions League encouraging Red Devils supporters to give him an opportunity.
Wonderkid Moukoko, whose career has stagnated since his initial burst onto the scene at Borussia Dortmund, might be heading in the other direction as Haller.
When questioned about his future at BVB, the Germany U-21 international—who is also eligible for Cameroon—refused to commit, and has made no secret of his unhappiness with a lack of playing time in Germany’s top flight.
The loss of Marco Rose might have an impact on Moukoko, especially if Edin Terzic decides to make the wonderkid a priority.
Moukoko is the man Barcelona should sign to replace Lionel Messi,
according to Samuel Eto’o, but is it too early for him to make a huge move?
Taiwo Awoniyi Awoniyi had been a goalless striker in his early years,
failing to score more than five goals in any of his prior Bundesliga or Eredivisie seasons.
Last season, though, he scored 15 goals for German underdogs Union Berlin,
helping them reach a stunning fifth in the top tier and securing European football for the next season.
The ex-Liverpool striker’s goal-scoring record last season has piqued the interest of some of Europe’s top teams, with Nottingham Forest tipped to sign him in a £17.5 million move.
Franco-Algerian superstar, had a strong season with OGC Nice last season, scoring ten goals and adding nine assists to help Le Gym finish fifth.
However, after missing out on the French Cup final and failing to qualify for the Champions League,
it remains to be seen whether any of the club’s better stars will be looking for a new home this summer.
Gouiri may be one of them.
In certain circles, he’s been projected as a possible Real Madrid replacement to Karim Benzema,
and there are rumors in France that Christophe Galtier, who seems to be leaving Nice for Paris Saint-Germain, wants to take Gouiri with him.
Hugo Ekitike is a Franco-Cameroonian sensation. Ekitike had a breakout season for Stade de Reims last season, scoring 10 league goals for the previous European Cup champions.
Eddie Howe may be tempted to sign the striker again this summer after he allegedly turned down a transfer to Newcastle United midway through the season.
Is there any interest from beyond the Premier League?
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have both been mentioned as possible destinations for an attacker who has already been compared to Thierry Henry in Ligue 1.
There are plenty African Strikers more coming soon…
Watch out for African Strikers cause they are about to rule Europe.
