Top 10 Best Right Wingers In Football World 2023

Every football fan understands that goals win matches but little do they know how difficult it is to score a goal on a pitch. It may look and feel easy but it takes hard work to constantly score goals in every match. This is the reason why people praise Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo a lot because they make goalscoring look easy. Every player on the pitch has his own duties to fulfil, some are more involved in the goalscoring actions while some are less. The players who play as wingers are certainly the second most important position when it comes to scoring goals. A winger may not score a lot of goals but it makes it easy for the striker to produce the end result. 

A skilled winger can make an average striker look like a top striker by using his skills and tricks to assist him with easy shots inside the box.

The wing position has always been among the most difficult positions on the pitch. In 2023 we can see that many emerging talents are ready to show their skills and make a name for themselves this year.

10 Right Wingers To Look For In 2023:

10: Riyad Mahrez

Mahrez is a player who produces when it matters. The player has not been the very best version of himself recently but he surely has given some of the best memories to look for in 2022. The new season will be a challenge for Mahrez to fit into the system of Manchester City. Pep Guardiola is a manager who used to rely majorly on the wingers and midfielders for scoring goals but in 2022 he signed Erling Haaland and Alvarez. It means that the game plan for every player will change and now they have to work harder to win a place in the starting 11.

It won’t be a problem for Mahrez as he shows up on big occasions and events such as the Champions League. The viewers can feel the heat when he gets on the ball, he effectively uses his skills to help Man City score goals. At the start of 2023 he already has 2 Premier League goals and an assist to his name:

9: Moussa Diaby

The ex-PSG winger is having a great time in Germany. The last season was the best for him in terms of goals and assists. He is involved in most of the good things that happen for Bayer Leverkusen. On 7 January 2023, the player already has 6 Goals and 3 Assists in just 15 games. It would be easy to predict that this 23-year-old skilled winger will sign for a top club very soon.

8: Miguel Almiron

Nobody would’ve thought that we will see Almiron involved in the Golden Boot race back at the start of 2022. The performances by Almiron in 2023 are a complete shadow of his performances in the past season. He is enjoying his goalscoring form on his much preferred right wing. Newcastle is now in the 3rd position on the Premier League table all thanks to Miguel Almiron and other players who are making it possible for Newcastle fans to again dream of the Champions League. At the start of 2023, Almiron already has 9 goals and 1 assist for Newcastle.

7: Federico Chiesa

The young Italian Maestro has taken the football world by storm with his astonishing performances in recent times. Many big European clubs want to sign him but at the moment he is still a Juventus player. People have seen how good Chiesa is on the pitch and want to see him perform more skills and tricks on the pitch, especially during the UCL nights. The year 2023 may be slow for Chiesa but we can expect him to bounce back and perform great for Juventus.

The last season was not that good for Chiesa as compared to the 2020/21 season. The player missed 9 months of action because of a major ACL knee injury. There were many transfer rumours too but nothing happened and maybe all that also affected his performance.

6: Serge Gnabry

Gnabry has been in the making for years to be among the best players in the world. The player works hard to be in the best shape for Bayern Munich and score as many goals & assists for the team. Serge Gnabry is quick on the ball and is a great asset on the counterattack. The player has been constant and performs well for the Bundesliga giants.

Gnabry can certainly make 2023 his year and stand out from other right-wingers on his list.

5: Rodrygo Goes

The Ultimate clutch player any team can dream of. 2022 has been a fairytale for Real Madrid and its fans. It never looked possible for them even till the very last whistle of the final. The Champions League run of 21/22 of Real Madrid will go down as one of the most difficult campaigns for any club to win the UCL. It would not have been possible if not for Rodrygo and his late goals. Ancelotti knew perfectly when to bring him on the pitch.

Rodrygo already have 4 Goals and 4 Assists at the start of 2023, the same number he had for the previous season. One thing can be easily said for Rodrygo he will score much more goals and make beautiful assists this year as now this 21-year-old player is confident enough to face any team in the world.

4: Ousmane Dembele

In the last few years, people used to mock Dembele for being injured for long durations and not performing well for Barcelona. Well, to answer all those haters Dembele is back and he is much stronger this time. The 25-year-old Brazil winger has always been a joy to watch. He is fast, skilled and knows how to get into attacking positions easily. In 2022 he had been the best player for Barcelona on the pitch. Now at the start of 2023, he has 4 goals and 5 assists making him among the most successful this season.

The good performances are also catching the eye of other big clubs. According to rumours, both PSG and Chelsea want to sign him. 2023 will be a great year for Dembele and his fans as he is finally getting the recognition he deserves.

3: Bukayo Saka

The extremely talented Bukayo Saka has been exceptional for Arsenal for the past few years. Arsenal is now in the pole position to win the Premier League after 18 years. It would not have been possible without Saka and Co to achieve this great title. The 21-year-old is now praised by all football pundits and soon will have a market value of about £96 million.

Saka is too young and has a long career ahead of him. The year 2023 will just be the start of something great for him.

2: Mohammed Salah

The Egyptian King has always been a part of this list right from his move back to the Premier League. Salah has everything in his locker that is required to be a good right winger. He is the most important player for Liverpool and has won great milestones with them. He is an absolute goalscoring machine. Being a winger he gives tough competition to other strikers in the Premier League for the Golden Boot.

On 7th January 2023, he already has 7 goals and 4 assists for Liverpool. It is going to be another year of scoring beautiful goals and performing mindblowing skills on the pitch for Mo Salah.

1: Lionel Messi

It is impossible to not mention Leo Messi in the top 10 right-wingers list till he retires. The year 2022 has been extremely special for Messi as he won the ultimate title which was missing in his life. He has the best G/A stats for the year and will most likely win his 8th Ballon D’or in 2023 for his performances in the World Cup.

It is not possible to define the greatness of Messi in words. Leo is the ultimate footballer any person can imagine. We are lucky to be in his era. Leo Messi is the best right winger of 2023.
