While Africa's superstars were surprisingly overlooked for the recent FIFPro World11 team, several remain leading performers - here are the top African scorers across Europe's top-five leagues.

Last season, Sadio Mane, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Mohamed Salah made history as they shared the Premier League golden boot award.

And it's no surprise to see the trio start the new campaign in blistering form and included within the most prolific scorers list in Europe's top-five leagues.

They are joined by Nigerian sensation Victor Osimhen, the 20-year-old has scored five goals in five games since joining LOSC Lille in the off-season from Belgian side Charleroi in a deal worth €12 million.

Senegal's Habib Diallo with FC Metz has been equally impressive in the French top-floght with four goals in his six starts, while Islam Slimani seems to have rekindled his best form with AS Monaco.

Cameroon forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has also starred in France, profitting from the Paris Saint-Germain injury crisis, with three goals to his name in just four games under Thomas Tuchel.

The only African representitives from the Bundesliga is Morocco playmaker Amine Harit, while there are none from Serie A and LaLiga yet.
