Here are five of the most creative Nigerian players in Europe so far….
5. Ademola Lookman – Fulham
Ademola Lookman was a relatively underappreciated figure at RB Leipzig, but his impact in big matches has been massive for Fulham.
He has also managed four assists – making him an intriguing alternative to some of the bigger names.
4. Joe Aribo – Rangers
Joe Aribo always put in a man of the match performances, and has bagged a hatful of assists.
He is still at the peak of his powers and his performance emphasise that.
3. Umar Sadiq – Almeria
The performances of star man Umar Sadiq will be integral to where Almeria end up.
The club’s heart, soul and engine is being linked with a mega-money move elsewhere this summer – and it’s easy to see why. He amassed 5 assists for his team-mates.
2. Anthony Nwakaeme – Trabzonspor
Nwakaeme has been extraordinary for Trabzonspor in the Turkish Super Lig with six assists so far.

1. Michael Olise – Reading
Michael Olise is Reading’s brain on the field. Arguably the most stylish player in the English Championship when he’s doing well. The playmaker has 11 assists this season.
