A natural-born striker
Karl Toko Ekambi (Paris, 14/09/1992) grew up playing for Paris FC’s youth academy, a club that he made his professional debut for in the French third division. After three seasons at the Paris club, the French-Cameroonian moved on to Sochaux-Montbèliard, where he soon showed his innate goal scoring ability, scoring 25 goals in two seasons. In 2016, Ekambi made the step up to Angers SCO, the club he made his debut with in Ligue 1 two seasons ago. This past season, Toko Ekambi scored 17 goals.
At 25 years old, the forward is a regular in the Cameroon national team. He has represented the ‘The Untameable Lions’ on 17 occasions.
Toko Ekambi stands out for his speed and goal scoring prowess. He is an excellent athlete, with great accuracy when finishing, skill in one-on-one situations and has a big influence on the team’s play. Even though he is right-footed, the French-Cameroonian has a great shot with both feet. At just 25 years of age, he has all the qualities to triumph in Spanish football.
