The Leading African Scorers In Europe's Top Five Leagues

The race to be crowned the Premier League Golden Boot winner ended in a three-way tie, with Mohamed Salah, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sadio Mane all sharing the accolade. Here are the 12 leading African goalscorers in Europe's elite leagues, with Bafana Bafana talisman Lebogang Mothiba no longer in the top 10.

Click through the gallery above to see the top African scorers in Europe's elite leagues so far this season, according to Transfermarkt!

Two-time African Footballer of the Year Salah failed to find the back of the net in Liverpool's 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, but ended the season as joint-top scorer with Aubameyang and Salah, all of them having scored 22 goals in the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

As a result, the former Chelsea star becomes the first player since Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane (2015/16 and 2016/17) to clinch back-to-back top goalscorer awards in England's top flight.

Salah[s fellow African compatriot and strike partner Mane emerged as the hero for the Reds in their final league game of the season as the Senegal international netted a brace in their 2-0 win over Wolves.

In doing so, Mane moved level with Aubameyang and Salah on 22 goals. More impressively, not a single one of the 27-year-old's 22 strikes came from the penalty spot.

Arsenal talisman and 2015 African Footballer of the Year Aubameyang followed in Mane's footsteps, grabbing a brace in the last league game of the season to finish the season with 22 goals in 36 games in his first full season with the Gunners.

Others stars in the ranking include LOSC Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe, who occupies fourth spot with 20 goals in 36 games, while Bafana Bafana striker Lebogang Mothiba is in 12th position with nine strikes in 33 Ligue 1 encounters for RC Strasbourg.
