The 10 top assisters in Europe’s major leagues in 2023: Trossard…

We’ve started 2023 with a bang and the likes of Leandro Trossard, Bruno Fernandes and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia are all amongst the top assisters this year.

From Europe’s top five league’s we have picked out the top assist providers from the calendar year so far. As to be expected, there are some top players in here.

Trossard has started out life in North London excellently as he already has six assists this year. Three of those came against Fulham where he was able to produce a hat-trick of goal contributions.

“When we talk about composure and finding the right colour when it’s looking really blurry in the box and many players rush passes, he’s the opposite,” Mikel Arteta told Sky Sports when discussing the winger.

“It’s football intelligence,” added Arteta. “He’s really clever to understand straight away what we want, what’s required. He’s executed it really well.”

Elsewhere in the Premier League, Fernandes has been back to his creative best this year. His overall output dropped last year, but he has been a key player for Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United during this campaign.

In the league, Fernandes has produced 71 key passes which is 44 more than any other player has managed. Along with being a creative force, he has also chipped in with 10 goals across all competitions.

Kvaratskhelia is one of the most exciting players in Europe and his inclusion on the list is no surprise. Napoli are storming it in Serie a right now and the 22-year-old has had a key role to play.

Along with Napoli teammate Victor Osimhen, the Georgian winger has been one of the most productive players in Europe. Along with domestic glory, they also have a shot at winning the Champions League too.

Since winning the World Cup, Paulo Dybala has been going well at Roma and also makes an appearance on the list. The Argentine playmaker has six assists during this calendar year which is some going.

However, it is Borussia Dortmund’s Raphael Guerreiro who tops the list with eight assists in 2023 so far. Dortmund currently top the Bundesliga and the Portuguese full-back has been on fire of late.

Using data from Transfermarkt, we have gathered the top assisters of 2023 so far in Europe’s top five leagues, and have also included Champions League and Europa League assists.
