The best left-footed forwards in the Europe at the moment.

Diego Maradona, Arjen Robben, Raul, Robin van Persie, and many others are among the finest left-footed players in the game. With the ball at their feet, such players have always been so elegant.


With such talented offensive players on the field, the game has only gotten more exciting with time. Let's take a look at some of the top left-footed attackers in the world right now on that note:

When it comes to who the best left-footed forward in the world is, there is no contest. Lionel Messi is one of the greatest players in the history of the game, and he is without a doubt the best left-footed player.

During his 17 years with the Catalan club, the left-footed attacker scored 474 goals in 520 appearances in La Liga. Barcelona won 10 La Liga titles, seven Copa del Rey wins, and four UEFA Champions League titles during his six-year tenure with the club.

Messi stunned the world when he announced his intention to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer (PSG). It was incredible, but there is too much anticipation to see how he performs in his new club.


Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund)

In 2019, Haaland joined Red Bull Salzburg, scoring 17 goals and adding four assists in only 16 games in the Austrian league. With such a track record, Borussia Dortmund was keen to recruit the Norwegian and was able to do so in the winter of 2020.

Haaland has developed into a beast of a striker since joining them. Opponents have struggled to contain him because to his powerful body, incredible speed, astute positioning, and outstanding goal-scoring ability. In only 48 games in the Bundesliga, he has scored 47 goals and added 15 assists.

It's incredible how competent and polished Haaland appears to be at such a young age of 21. With such a strong track record, the Norway attacker is almost certain to play for a major European team next season.


Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

Salah has been a godsend for the Merseyside club with his fast pace, superb dribbling, deft agility, and incredible goal-scoring ability.


He has been at Liverpool for more than four seasons and has received several awards throughout that time. He was instrumental in their victories in the Premier League for the 2019-20 season, the UEFA Champions League for the 2018-19 season, the 2019 UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup for the 2019-20 season.
