The PulseSPORTS30 ranking is non-discriminatory and will not be restricted to footballers playing in the world’s major leagues.

Chukwueze suffered a bad start to the season, with injuries ensuring he could only start in 32% of Villarreal’s games. In total, he made 38 appearances across all competitions, scoring seven goals and assisting three others.

Perhaps his standout moment was his goal at the Allianz Arena in the Champions League quarterfinals to see Villarreal seal their semi-final berth at expense of Bayern Munich.

As stated, he was also only able to complete 90 minutes three times in the league. Notwithstanding, Chukwueze was also a huge contributor to Villarreal’s forward line, which also featured Arnaut Danjuma and Gerard Moreno.

Ex-Manchester United youngster Kehinde came into his own at Randers and had an outstanding breakout season for the Danish club.

Kehinde, primarily a winger, displayed great versatility for Randers by playing on either wing, in the midfield and even as a centre forward, accruing a total of 42 games.

The 23-year-old returned six goals and eight assists in all competitions, including a solid UEFA Conference League campaign.

Ajayi had an unlucky season with West Brom as the Championship side missed a shot at returning to the Premier League by eight points.

The 28-year-old centre-back amassed over 2400 playing minutes for West Brom and contributed to three of their goals — 1 goal, and 2 assists — from his position, while helping West Brom keep 13 clean sheets.

Lookman’s loan season with Leicester City went as well as it could – perhaps enough to guarantee a return to the King Power Stadium or any other Premier League grounds this summer.

The 24-year-old, brought in to compliment Leicester’s attack line made 41 appearances across all competitions, notching up eight goals and five assists to his name.

Moffi enjoyed a productive season in Ligue 1, scoring a total of eight goals and also contributing to four more for Lorient. The striker ended the season as the club’s highest contributor in terms of goals.

He also carried his club form to the international scene, most recently scoring his first senior goals in the Super Eagles’ 10-0 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier win against Sao Tome & Principe.
