🌍 This season's 47 African players in the English Premier League

Futaa looks at the list of 47 African footballers playing the English Premier League, with Nigeria & Ivory Coast leading Senegal very slightly...

The English Premier League is what every young African footballer dreams of, and certainly millions of African fans love to see one of their own competing in.

The 2019/20 season has seen an increase of five players moving to England after last season’s 42. While it is super easy to name our most popular stars like Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Gabon and of course the Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) as well Sadio Mane (Senegal), but who else is there representing the continent?
