There is a new generation of players coming to the fore to take over from the likes of Yaya Toure, Didier Drogba among others. Today, the focus is on best midfielders shining in the English League this season. Let us take a look at seven best African midfielders playing in the Premier League today.

Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is one of the best box-to-box midfielders in the Premier League today. The 21-year-old Nigerian midfielder joined Leicester City for £17 million from Belgian Club Genk in 2016. His style is similar to Ivory Coast legend Yaya Toure. The big clubs will certainly start making bids soon.
6. Victor Wanyama- Tottenham (Kenya)

Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder Victor Wanyama is a force to reckon with in the Premier League. The Kenyan international has struggled with injuries in recent months but he is still one of the best export from the continent. Liverpool fans will be happy not to see him play against them this coming weekend after that thunderbolt equalizer at Anfield last season.
5. Idrissa Gueye- Everton (Senegal)

Marco Silva was not sure about several players when he signed for Everton earlier this summer. However, one player he knew must be in his starting eleven is Senegal International midfielder, Idrissa Gueye. The holding midfielder continues to register an impressive number of tackles season after another. So far, he is level with Leicester City new boy Ricardo Pereira with 14 tackles each.
4. Wilfried Zaha- Crystal Palace (Ivory Coast)

Premier League most dangerous winger after Raheem Sterling and Mohamed Salah is certainly Wilfried Zaha. The Ivory Coast international winger can take on any defender and win. The 25-year-old has recovered from the terrible season at Manchester United in 2013/14. Today, he is one of the most sought-after wingers in England. He extended his contract to stay at Palace for a few more years. This might also be a way of making him expensive for top clubs.
