Lionel Messi led the list of most goal contributions for many years in Europe

Football is the most popular sport in the world. Essentially it can be considered as the “world sport “. There are more than 180 countries officially registered with FIFA. However, the top five leagues are on a different level and are above other leagues. There have been plenty of standouts across Europe, with talent abound at traditional powers and plucky upstarts.

Some players have also impacted the season as of now like no other. Mesmerising the entire footballing world with their incredible performances and abilities. Today, we’ve compiled a list of the top five players, with the most goal contributions so far this season in Europe’s top five leagues.

5. Kylian Mbappe - 26

It is not at all surprising to see the French star on this list as he continues to perform consistently for his club. A versatile forward, Mbappé often plays as a winger, and is capable of playing on either flank, due to his ability with both feet. A highly skilful player, Kylian Mbappe is known for his dribbling ability, as well as his explosive acceleration, agility, quick feet, first touch, link-up play and creativity when in possession of the ball, as demonstrated by his use of elaborate feints, such as stepovers, or sudden changes of pace or direction to beat opponents in one-on-one situations.

Even though he is always surrounded by controversies still he doesn't allow himself to get distracted and performs every time. He has 26 direct goal contributions till now and in future he will increase his numbers.

4. Mohamed Salah - 27

The Egyptian king is also on fire this season and will look to keep up his performance for his club, regarded as a quick, mobile, hard-working and tactical player, with good technique and an eye for goal, Salah is predominantly known for his speed, movement, clinical finishing, agility, dribbling skills, first touch, and ball control, as well as his ability to use both his pace and flair on the ball to beat opponents and create scoring opportunities for himself or his teammates. He is just ahead of Mbappe as he has 27 direct goal contributions till now and will look to keep his performance consistent.

3. Lautaro Martinez - 27

A dynamic, quick, agile, and technically gifted player, who is a prolific goalscorer, he is known for his elegant playing style, good dribbling skills, and clinical finishing ability, as well as surprising physical strength and aerial prowess despite not having particular tall. Last season his performance was not consistent and was criticised by fans and pundits but right now he is proving his critics wrong as he has 27 direct goal contributions and impressing everyone with his performance. Due to his leadership, tenacity, and mentality on the pitch, he has been nicknamed El Toro.

2. Erling Haaland - 29

Last season he was the best striker in the whole Premier League broke some amazing records and also won the FIFA best player of the year award. A prolific goalscorer and widely regarded as one of the best players in the world, Erling Haaland has all the attributes of a complete centre-forward. He has the pace and clever movement to run in behind, he can dribble and create, and he can finish with both feet and his head. Till now he has had 29 goal contributions this year and will try his best to break more records with his performance.

1. Harry Kane - 30

England and Tottenham Hotspur legend and now Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane has been in fine form this year, as of now he has had 30 direct goal contributions.  From warming the bench at Leicester City on cold nights in the Championship, Kane’s ascent to stardom matched and accelerated Spurs’ march into the elite of English football.

The England international got the job done for Spurs in several different ways this season. He has developed an extensive repertoire of finishes which make him an extremely complex matchup for any defence. He has been performing very well this season for the Bavarian club scoring eight goals and providing three assists for his new club. His quality is seared into the collective memory of the game and he will go down as one of the greatest strikers to ever grace the Premier League.
