With Crystal Palace, Ayew may not have scored the biggest number of goals but he sure is a regular, last season he played 31 games in the Premier League and has already made 7 in the 2022/2023 season.
2. Thomas Partey – Arsenal
Thomas Partey has been a big part in Arsenal’s drive at the top of the table this season and anytime he has fitness issues, the Gunners suffer.
Partey joined Arsenal from Atletico Madrid some seasons ago and has continued to become a huge figure with the fans.
The midfielder is also the skipper of the Black Stars of Ghana and scored the goal that took them to Qatar against Nigeria.
1. Mohammed Salisu – Southampton
Salisu joined the Saints from Valladolid in 2020 and has been a big part of Southampton since then.
The 23-year-old has already played over 50 games for the Saints but still has just two caps for the Black Stars of Ghana.
This has majorly been due to controversies around his call up into the national teams including the cadet teams.
However, the 23-year-old debuted in the 3-0 Friendly loss to Brazil in September 2022 as the team prepares for the FIFA World Cup.
