PSG superstar and France international Kylian Mbappe has been crowned as the world’s fastest footballer ahead of a plethora of Premier League players.

According to a list released by French publication Le Figaro, below mentioned are the top 10 fastest football players on the planet:

#10: Nacho Fernandez – 34.62 km/h

The Real Madrid center-half might have made only nine appearances for Los Blancos this season, but that hasn’t stopped him from leaving the opposition players in his wake.

The 30-year-old Spain international, who has spent the entirety of his career at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, has clocked in a maximum speed of 34.62 km/h this campaign.

 

#9: Alvaro Odriozola – 34.99 km/h

Signed on a season-long loan from Spanish giants Real Madrid last August, the Bayern Munich full-back has made only a single appearance for the reigning Bundesliga champions so far this season.

But that was enough for the 24-year-old to showcase the strength of his legs, as he ran at a speed of 34.99km/h to emerge as the ninth-fastest player on the planet.

#8: Kingsley Coman – 35 km/h

The 23-year-old Bayern Munich winger has got more playing opportunities than Odriozola, and he has made them count with his pace and trickery.

Coman is known for his ability to sprint with the ball, a fact nobody can deny now that he is officially the 8th fastest player in world football.

 

#7: Mohamed Salah – 35 km/h

Regular Premier League watchers won’t be surprised to see the name of the Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah on the list given the frequency with which he terrorizes opposition defenses with his pace.

The golden boot winner for the last two seasons has been instrumental in guiding the Reds to last year’s Champions League trophy, with his form this season helping Jurgen Klopp’s men open up an unprecedented 25-point gap over 2nd placed Manchester City.

 

#6: Leroy Sane – – 35.04 km/h

Provided Bayern are able to convince the German international to break his relationship with Man City in favor of move to the Bundesliga, they’d have three of the ten fastest players on their payroll.

Sane has spent the majority of this season on the treatment table after suffering an injury at the start of this season, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting chased by a host of top European clubs.

#5: Kyle Walker – 35.21 km/h

The Manchester City right-back has been in the news for all the wrong reasons as he recently hosted a sex-party just a day before urging his fans to ‘stay at home’ during the coronavirus lockdown.

Sun Sports has revealed that the England international, whose national career might now be in jeopardy, invited the escorts for a three-hour sex session.

 

#4: Karim Bellarabi – 35.27 km/h

Though not as famous a name across Europe as some of the other players in this list, the Bayer Leverkusen midfielder doesn’t let his anonymity slow him down on the pitch.

His presence on the list is a huge surprise given the fact that the German star is one of the oldest players on the list, as he’d be turning 31 next April.

#3: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 35.5 km/h

The 30-year-old Arsenal striker is one of the major reasons why, despite having a poor start to the 2019/20 campaign, the Gunners are now competing for a Champions League spot.

Aubameyang has been extremely prolific in front of goals this season, with his 17 goals putting him just two strikes behind Premier League’s top scorer Jamie Vardy.

 

 #2: Inaki Williams – 35.7 km/h

The diminutive 25-year-old Athletic Bilbao forward hasn’t been at his goalscoring best in La Liga this season, with the Spain international finding the back of the net a disappointing 6 times.

However, as suggested by his status as the 2nd fastest players on the planet, the lack of goals that are coming Williams’ way are most definitely not due to the lack of trying from his side.

 

#1: Kylian Mbappe – 36 km/h

Any surprises? Apart from being one of the most prolific strikers in world football at the moment, the PSG striker and French World Cup winner Mbappe also has a habit of leaving opposition defenders catching air as he bamboozles them with his shear pace.
