Africa's five most prolific Premier League strikers (1)

After Chelsea completed the free transfer signing of former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o, the footballing world will be waiting with bated breath to see how the latest African import takes to the Premier League.

On paper, the 32-year-old still has plenty to offer, but whether or not he'll prove to be a value-for-money acquisition - given that he is reportedly set to earn around £7million from his one-year deal - remains to be seen.

Over the years, there have been numerous success stories when it comes to African strikers in England's top-flight. The Cameroon international will be hoping to emulate some of those players by hitting the ground running at Stamford Bridge in 2013/14.

The transfer reunites Eto'o with Jose Mourinho; a man he enjoyed a good relationship with and thrived under during his time at the San Siro.

He left Russian giants Anzhi Makhachkala after the club took the decision to slash their wage bill this summer, following former team-mate Willian to west London, after the Brazilian completed the same move just a day earlier.

"I am very happy to be here but also anxious because I want to get playing as soon as possible," Eto'o told Chelsea's official website. "It wasn't a hard decision.

"I saw the qualities Chelsea have and I was very happy with José Mourinho before, so when the opportunity came, I was very happy to take it."

As the four-time African Player of the Year winner prepares to make his Chelsea bow, check out the five most prolific Premier League strikers from that continent.
