Get Acquainted With One Of The Greatest Creators In World Football Today

Statistically speaking, there’s no better creator in world football today than RB Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg.

With 19 league assists in 30 matches, no player in Europe’s big five leagues had more than RB Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg last season. The 25-year-old Swedish midfielder was one of the breakthrough players in Europe in 2016-17, firing his club to an unexpected second place finish in the Bundesliga.

For a bit of context, Luis Suarez provided the second most assists in Europe’s big five leagues last season. His total was 13. 

Forsberg has been linked with Manchester United, AC Milan and Arsenal this summer, but the German club remain committed to keeping him alongside other young talents Naby Keita and Timo Werner. 

Forsberg transferred from Malmo to Leipzig in January of 2015 for just over $4 million, but his dynamic play through the middle or on the left-hand side of attack — to go along with eight Bundesliga goals — has seen his market value increase exponentially.
