Super Eagles star Moses Simon has been ranked ahead of Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe on the list of fastest players in the French Ligue 1 this season.
The Nigerian international, who plays for Nantes, made the list over some pacy wingers like Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele after four rounds of games in the league.
Simon is known for his dribbling skills on the left wing and also his pace, which is always difficult for defenders to cope with.
According to 90mins, the Nigerian winger is the second fastest player in the French league with 35.97 km/h, with Olympique Marseille defender Jonathan Clauss owning the top spot with 36.11 km/h.
Mbappe, who had issues with PSG at the beginning of the season due to his contract with the club, was absent from the top 10 list alongside Dembele.
Simon's teammate at Nantes, Kader Bamba, is third on the list, while Clermont Foot winger Jim Allevinah is fourth with a top speed of 35.88 km/h.
Another Nigerian on the list of fastest players in Ligue 1 is Super Eagles striker Terem Moffi.
The OGC Nice striker is seventh on the list, with a top speed of 35.82 km/h.
