An international forward who also plays for PSG has been labelled as the most creative player in world football by statisticians.
The CIES Football Observatory has conducted its latest research in an attempt to measure chance creation worldwide, by developing a special creation index.
According to this index, which factors in the number of key passes leading to chances and expected assists per 90 minutes, as well as the match level, PSG's Ousmane Dembele has emerged as the top creator in world football, scoring an impressive creation index of 2.36.
Dembele, who joined PSG from Barcelona for £43.5million in the summer, has already provided four assists for his team, although he is yet to find the back of the net himself.
His PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe also features in the top five, ranking fourth in the world for chance creation.
Surprisingly, the only player from the Premier League to make the top five is Aston Villa's Moussa Diaby, who has been an exceptional contributor with three goals and three assists in his debut season.
The research encompasses the top 100 most creative players globally, with the Premier League having the highest representation of 16 players.
Furthermore, the study highlights Bayer Leverkusen's Florian Wirtz, PSV's Johan Bakayoko, and Rukh Lviv's Ilya Kvasnytsya as the most promising young creative talents under the age of 21.
Defensively, Inter Milan's Federico Dimarco and Newcastle captain Kieran Trippier rank highest, known for their exceptional deliveries and assist contributions.
With representation from 33 different leagues around the world, the results underline the diverse nature of global football and the talent spread across different competitions.
