In Bundesliga, there are many African stars, but who and who can best be classified among the best African stars to keep tabs on during the final months of the German campaign?
#6 Moussa Diaby
Twenty-year – old Diaby has thrived this season on Bayer Leverkusen’s left flank, making seven crucial goal contributions and adding four on his own.
The France U-20 winger is one of the players on this list who transferred from France to Germany in search of greater opportunities, and may well have made former employers Paris Saint-Germain regret to let him go so soon.
The Wideman is glittering in possession, and along with Marcus Thuram, Kai Havertz and Denis Zakaria is a key man in a Leverkusen side who remain firmly in the hunt for Champions League qualification.
#5 Ibrahima Konate
Another Leipzig starlet, Konate has also looked the part this term for the Bundesliga surprise package and is clearly benefiting from the tutelage of Julian Nagelsmann.
At just 20, he’s got time on his side as he looks to refine his game, but he’s demonstrated his international pedigree as a part of Sylvain Ripoli’s France U-21 side.
He’s reportedly been courting interest from Manchester United, who reportedly opened talks with the defender earlier this month despite his ongoing injury concerns.
#4 Nordi Mukiele
Mukiele is thriving in Germany after leaving Montpellier in search of more game time, having found his feet at RasenBallsport Leipzig.
Now 22, the full-back has become a key figure in Nagelsmann’s plans and has impressed down the right flank in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League, where he’s made eight appearances en route to the final eight.
The towering Wideman is also eligible for the Democratic Republic of Congo.
#3 Dayot Upamecano
This term was influential for Upamecano as Rasen Ballsport Leipzig mounted a Bundesliga title challenge and reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, eliminating Tottenham Hotspur along the way.
He is rapidly establishing himself as one of the game ‘s finest young defenders, and despite being qualified for Guinea-Bissau, he is a key figure in the youth teams in France.
The center-back appears destined for the top and has already courted interest from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United.
#2 Christopher Nkunu
So far this season Nkunku made an emphatic impact at Leipzig.
He didn’t get the game time he thought at Paris Saint-Germain he deserved and is showing that his former employers were premature to underestimate him in Germany, where he has recorded 12 assists in this term.
For context, only Jadon Sancho and Thomas Muller have more than the versatile 22-year-old, who’s also chipped in with four goals.
#1 Achraf Hakimi
Hakimi, one of the world’s most promising young defenders, has taken his game to a new level since moving to Borussia Dortmund on loan after winning the Champions League with Real Madrid.
During the Last term, before injury struck, he helped BVB mount a title challenge and strongly rebounded this term.
The attacking full-back has thrived in Dortmund’s adventurous side and added goals to his game, including four in the Champions League group stage.
In the Bundesliga, he’s weighed in with 10 assists during BVB’s title charge, and his future could be one of the hot talking points of the transfer window.
