The all-time highest-scoring foreign player in each of Europe's top-five leagues

Sergio Aguero celebrates scoring against Crystal Palace.

Sergio Aguero is now firmly the highest-scoring foreigner in Premier League history (and English football history).

The Argentine bagged two more goals on Saturday in Manchester City's disappointing 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

That brace took Aguero to 179 Premier League goals, the fourth-highest in the competition's history and four clear of Thierry Henry - the next highest foreign scorer.

But while Aguero holds that distinction at England's top-level, what about the rest of Europe's five most reputable leagues?

There's a far longer history of non-domestic talent in continental Europe, after all.

Premier League - Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) - 179 goals

Everyone knew City had signed a great striker when Aguero arrived in 2011. Few would have predicted he'd become the 4th highest scorer in Premier League history, overtaking Henry as the top-scoring foreigner.

A truly incredible player.

Ligue 1 - Delio Onnis (Reims, Monaco Tours, Toulon) - 299 goals

Not a name everyone will know but Onnis was a revelation in France. The Italian-born Argentine moved to the country in 1971 and began a 15-year spell of goal-scoring domination.

His peak was at AS Monaco, who he joined in 1973. The club were actually relegated in 1976 but Onnis dropped down to Ligue 2 with them, finishing as top scorer in an immediate promotion season.

The next season, Monaco won Ligue 1 and Onnis would eventually go on to become the all-time top scorer in Ligue 1 history - domestic or foreign. That's quite mad, given one year of his peak was in the second-tier.

Bundesliga - Robert Lewandowski (Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich) - 221 goals

Lewandowski is as consistent as it gets.

Lewandowski had been prolific in Poland but Dortmund still took a risk with their £4.5m signing in 2010. He only scored eight times in his debut campaign in the Bundesliga but they stuck with him.

He's only once scored fewer than 20 goals in a season since. One of the modern greats he's quite amazingly enjoying the best season of his career right now at the age of 31.

Serie A - Gunnar Nordahl (AC Milan, AS Roma) - 225 goals

The history of Italian football is littered with great strikers but Nordahl tops the lot. When Milan signed the Swede in 1949 they knew they were getting someone good - he'd scored 93 goals in 95 games for Norrkoping and his national team record was 43 goals in 33 games.

But they couldn't have imagined he'd be quite so good. Nordahl won Serie A's Capocannoniere a record five times and is the third-highest scorer in Italian history - something he achieved in just ten years.

For some perspective, the only two players to have scored more - Silvio Piola and Francesco Totti - played for 25 years each.

La Liga - Lionel Messi (Barcelona) - 432 goals

Messi is far and away La Liga's highest scorer - domestic or foreign.

We'll end with the most famous and most ridiculous foreign scorer. Messi's tally of 432 goals - scored in 466 games - is higher than any other total by any other player in any other league.

That's domestic or foreign.

Undoubtedly the greatest goalscorer Europe has ever seen and he's still not done.
