The role of a winger has evolved over the years, with goalscoring just as important as being able to deliver balls into the box. In this article, we will look at the top five left-wingers in the world right now.
5. Lorenzo Insigne (Napoli)
The Napoli captain had a remarkable performance in Euros, as he led Italy to the title. The player is deployed on the left wing for both Italy and Napoli. He has continued his form for the club as well, scoring five goals and providing four assists in 14 games across all competitions.
4. Leroy Sane (Bayern Munich)
Sane has managed to develop himself into an undisputed starter under Julian Nagelsmann. The skilled German winger has provided 8 goals and 5 assists in 17 games across all competitions.
3. Vinicius Jr (Real Madrid)
Vincius Jr is arguably the most talked-about left-winger right now, since he is enjoying his breakout season at Real Madrid. The 21-year-old has scored nine goals and provided two assists in 16 games across all competitions, and has become an unstoppable force on the left flank.
2. Neymar (PSG)
Neymar is without a doubt the most skilled player on this list. The PSG forward operates alongside Lionel Messi once again, and has 3 goals and assists each in 11 games across all competitions. The Brazilian has proven himself at the top level time and time again, and will have his eyes on the Champions League trophy this year.
1. Sadio Mane (Liverpool)
While Vinicius Jr is making a name for himself this year, Sadio Mane is already established as one of the best in the world at Liverpool. The Senegalese winger recently hit the 100-goal mark in the Premier League and continues to be one of the first names on the team sheet for Jürgen Klopp.
