Edgar Nicaise Constant Salli (born 17 August 1992), commonly known as Edgar Salli, is a Cameroonian footballer who currently plays for Académica on loan from Monaco and is a winger, having previously played for Ngaoundéré and Coton Sport. He has been capped at full international level by Cameroon.

He began his career with central Cameroonian club Ngaoundéré and made his senior debut in Elite Two during the 2008–09 season. Ngaoundéré were relegated at the end of the campaign, and Salli joined Elite One side Coton Sport ahead of the 2009–10 season. His first campaign with the club was successful as Coton Sport were crowned champions of Cameroon for the tenth time,and Salli established himself in the Cameroon under-20 team.

He continued to feature prominently for the club during the next campaign and his performances at the 2011 African Youth Championship saw him receive several offers from Europe. In May 2011, Salli was linked with a transfer to South African side Moroka Swallows. Kick Off said that he had a pre-contract agreement with them, but a transfer never materialised.

Having retained the Elite One championship with Coton Sport, he was transferred to French club Monaco in July 2011 for an undisclosed fee. He signed a three-year contract with the club, who had been relegated to Ligue 2 at the end of the 2010–11 season. Salli made his debut for Monaco in a 0–0 draw with Boulogne on 1 August, and scored his first goal for the club three weeks later in a one-all draw with Amiens.

Salli scored his fifth goal of the season in league and cup competition on 2 March 2012 in a 2–2 draw with Sedan. He finished the season with five goals in 31 appearances. Salli played regularly for the reserves in the Championnat de France amateur the following season and made one appearance for the first team as the club won promotion back to Ligue 1 as champions.

On 23 July 2013, Salli joined RC Lens on a season-long loan from Monaco.

On 22 August 2014, he was once again loaned, this time to Académica.

Prior to receiving his first cap for the Cameroon national team, Salli represented his country at youth international level. He made his debut for the under-20 team in 2009 and played regularly over the next two years.

He took part in the 2010 CEMAC Cup and was voted player of the tournament at the 2011 African Youth Championship. Cameroon finished as runners-up in both competitions. Salli made his senior debut for Cameroon in a 1–1 draw with Equatorial Guinea on 11 October 2011.
