Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see the 10 highest-scoring Africans in Bundesliga history, according to Transfermarkt.

High-profile Africans such as Jay-Jay Okocha and Anthony Yeboah have starred in the German top flight over the years, and in more recent times, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The former Borussia Dortmund hitman struck 98 times in the Bundesliga before his move to Arsenal in January 2018, making him the highest-scoring African player in the league's long and rich history.

Second on the list is Ghana icon Yeboah, whose 96 strikes in Germany's top division saw him go down in history as one of the most prolific African strikers, not only in Germany, but in the world.

South African-born striker Sean Dundee, who once represented Germany's "B" team, scored 61 Bundesliga goals during his time in the country. Dundee was born in Durban in 1972, but decided against representing Bafana Bafana.

Nigerian forward Jonathan Akpoborie, who played for clubs such as VfB Stuttgart and Wolfsburg, hit the back of the net on 60 occasions, while Togolese legend Bachirou Salou struck 51 times in the Bundesliga, as did Leroy Sane's father Souleyman Sane, who represented Senegal at international level.

Gerald Asamoah is seventh on the list with 50 Bundesliga strikes, although he represented Germany on the international stage despite being born in Ghana.

Wenger's Shock Replacement Revealed?

Egyptian Mohamed Zidan is eighth with 47 top-flight goals in Germany, followed by Cameroon international Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting with 45 strikes, and Ivorian Didier Yo Konan with 40 goals.
