9 times in history, an African football player has scored at least 10 goals in a season. The absolute record belongs to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabonese striker scored 12 European Cup goals for Marseille in the current season. He is also the only player to hit the 10-goal barrier twice.

1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 12 (2023/24, Marseille)
2. Sebastian Haller – 11 (2021/22, Ajax)
3. Mohamed Salah – 11 (2017/18, Liverpool)
4. Victor Boniface – 11 (2022/23, Bodo Glimt, Saint-Giloise)
5. Didier Drogba – 11 (2003/04, Marseille)
6. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 11 (2015/16, Borussia D )

8. Patrick Twumasi – 10 (2017/18, Astana)
