50) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund)
With 25 goals last season, pacey Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a superb talent who could one day earn a move to a bigger club.
49) Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool)
A joy to watch at his best, Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho is one of the finest attacking players in the Premier League at the moment, and just needs more consistency to his game.
48) Nemanja Matic (Chelsea)
One of the best defensive midfield specialists in the game, Chelsea star Nemanja Matic is undoubtedly among the top 50 in the world right now.
47) Jackson Martinez (Atletico Madrid)
After some truly prolific form at Porto, Jackson Martinez has now moved to Atletico Madrid and looks a good bet to continue his fine form as among the best finishers in Europe.
46) Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli)
