Kylian Mbappe has been crowned the world’s fast footballer ahead of a host of Premier League stars. Arsenal ace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah have been beaten to the top spot by the 21-year-old. French publication Le Figaro have released a list of the top ten quickest football players on the planet.

1.  Kylian Mbappe- PSG (36km/h)

Mbappe’s pace is one of the attributes that has led to him becoming one of the most in-demand players on the planet.

Premier League leaders Liverpool want to sign the PSG ace, but will face competition from Real Madrid.

2. Inaki Williams-Athletic Bilbao (35.7km/h)

Williams’ pace has not gone unnoticed during his time with Spanish club Athletic Bilbao.

Manchester United were reportedly interested in snapping him up in 2019, but he signed a new long-term deal with the LaLiga side instead.

3) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang-Arsenal (35.5km/h)

Arsenal are at risk of losing their pacey forward this summer as he is allegedly ready to call time on his career at the Emirates.

The striker, who has scored 20 times this season, has attracted interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.

4. Karim Bellarabi- Leverkusen (35.25km/h)

The Bayer Leverkusen winger, 30, has kept spot in the side this season after making 22 appearances.

Bellarabi, who can reportedly run 35.27km/h, has scored four goals and made five assists for the German giants.

5. Kyle Walker- Man City (35.21km/h)

The defender has just edged ahead of Manchester City team-mate Sane with a top speed of 35.21km/h.

Walker has scored one goal in 26 appearances for Guardiola’s side during the 2019/20 campagin.

6. Leroy Sane- Man City (35.04km/h)

SunSport revealed that the Manchester City was quicker than a T-Rex back in 2017 - and he’s been making opponents look prehistoric ever since.

But Pep Guardiola’s men will have to enjoy it while it lasts as the 24-year-old has been linked to Bayern Munich.

7. Mohamed Salah- Liverpool (35km/h)

Salah’s incredible pace has helped him score 20 goals and make eight assists for Liverpool this season.

He is the quickest player in Jurgen Klopp’s side, but Real Madrid could make a fast move for him this summer if they miss out on Mbappe.

8. Kingsley Coman- Bayern Munich (35km/h)

The pacey French winger has attracted a wide range of interest since he refused to rule out a move away from Bayern this summer.

Barcelona are keen to get their hands on him - but he has hailed Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola as the best manager.

9. Alvara Odriozola- Bayern Munich (34.99km/h)

Bayern Munich have Odriozola at their disposal after signing him on loan from Real Madrid.

But the 24-year-old’s pace is yet to cause any problems in the Bundesliga as he has made just one start for the German side.

10) Nacho Fernandez - Real Madrid (34.62km/h)

Nacho Fernandez has only made nine appearances for Real Madrid this season, but there’s no sign of him slowing down anytime soon.

The 30-year-old, who recently lost a relative to coronavirus, has spent his entire career with the Spanish side.
