Earlier in this window, it was confirmed that Cameroon international Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa would be staying at Napoli permanently following a successful loan spell in the 2021/22 season.

The midfielder officially departed newly-promoted Premier League side Fulham in a deal worth €15 million (R252 million, making his switch the fourth biggest so far when it comes to African players in Europe.

While his compatriot Martin Hongla, who has signed for Hellas Verona from Belgium club Royal Antwerp, features below him in the standing, above him is Jeremie Boga following his €22 million (R370 million) move to Atalanta from Sassuolo.

Like Anguissa, the Ivory Coast international, once on the books of Chelsea, also spent the previous campaign on loan at the side he has since joined in a permanent capacity.

Second on the list is Bissouma's €29.2 million (R491.5 million) transfer from Brighton & Hove Albion to Tottenham Hotspur, with the midfielder becoming one of the latest players brought in to bolster Antonio Conte's squad ahead of next season.

A Mali international, the 25-year-old will be hoping to develop into a key player for the demanding Italian tactician following an impressive four-year spell at Brighton.

Ex-Al Ahly Star Criticises Tau

On Monday, meanwhile, Morocco centre-back Nayef Aguerd became the most expensive African player of the window to date when he completed an exciting move to West Ham United from Rennes for a fee of €35 million (R589 million).
