The Top Ten Most Successful Dribblers In 2019/20

Adama Traore was the most successful dribbler in the top five European leagues in 2019/20.

The Wolves winger has been rated as the third best player in the Premier League last term according to statistics after having the most productive season of his career so far.

He scored four and assisted nine (seven of which were for Raul Jimenez) as Nuno Espirito Santo's side finished sixth, but as per Planet Football he also averaged 6.3 dribbles per game - making him the dribbling king in Europe.

Samba skillster and PSG star Neymar completed 6.1 dribbles per game in Ligue One to place him in second, while Newcastle United's Allan Saint-Maximin provided plenty of excitement while completing 5.8 successful dribbles per game wearing his beloved Gucci headband.

Lionel Messi is widely considered to be the best dribbler in world football but the six-time Ballon d'Or winner finds himself in fourth spot on this list after completing 5.7 dribbles every 90 minutes.

The Barcelona captain also notched 25 goals and 21 assists for good measure.

Further Premier League presence comes from Wilfried Zaha of Crystal Palace (4.5) and Southampton's Moussa Djenepo (4.3).

Meanwhile, Eden Hazard is tenth on the list despite a hugely disappointing debut season at Real Madrid. The Belgian deemed the campaign to be "the worst season of my career individually" after only scoring once and managing just 14 starts in La liga.

His dribbling prowess remained, however, as he managed 4.1 dribbles per game.
