These have been the 10 most expensive signings of African footballers in football history:
The Senegalese player has been one of the great signings in Liverpool’s history. In 2016 he arrived from Southampton in exchange for 36 million euros. Five years later, he has won everything with the Reds and has become one of the best strikers ever in the club.

These are five Concacaf players who could travel to Europe after the Gold Cup due to their extraordinary football conditions
If we have said that the signing of Mané was important for Liverpool, that of Salah is even more so. Both have been the two great figures of the champion team that Klopp has built, along with Van Dijk. In the case of the Egyptian, he signed in 2017 from Rome and in exchange for 42 million euros.
The signing of Haller by West Ham is one of the great examples of the economic potential that the Premier League has. The hammers took this Ivorian striker from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019 in exchange for 50 ‘kilos’. He has disappointed a lot and in January he was signed by Ajax.
One of United’s obsessions in recent years has been to strengthen defense. Two summers ago they did not hesitate to spend 55 million euros to sign Wan Bissaka, a right back who played at Crystal Palace. Although he is English, his roots are from the DR Congo.
Keita is one of the infinite products of the Red Bull factory. Liverpool continued with its policy of African transfers and took over the services of Mali in 2018, in exchange for 60 million euros and from RB Leipzig.
The top5 is completed by a signing this summer. Paris Saint Germain have brought in several free players, but money has been spent on one player. He bought Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan in exchange for € 60 million.
Aubameyang was surely Arsenal’s best signing in the last decade. The Gabonese arrived in January 2018 from Borussia Dortmund and has become one of the great scorers in the Premier League.
If you can’t beat your enemy, buy it. Mahrez had been one of the great sensations of the historic Leicester who won the Premier in 2016. Two years later, Manchester City signed the Algerian in exchange for 68 million euros.
The truth is that it is surprising to see Bakambu so high up. However, in 2018 the Chinese Beijing Gouan did not hesitate to release the money and bought it from Villarreal in exchange for 72 million euros.
The most expensive signing in Arsenal’s history is an African player. In the summer of 2019, 80 million euros were spent to sign Pepe, who had had a great season with Lille. It still does not quite give the expected performance, although it still has some margin.
