Aboubakar tallied team-highs with 16 goals and seven assists in 35 appearances for Lorient this season.

Aboubakar spent his first three Ligue 1 seasons with Valenciennes, but managed just nine goals over that span. As a result, his 16 scores this term marked a breakout campaign for the 22-year-old striker, who actually netted one-third of Lorient's league goals. The Cameroon International also set up seven more goals, supplying the bulk of his team's offensive exploits. As his country ventures to this summer's World Cup, Aboubakar replicating his club form could trigger added transfer interest in his services before next season.
