5. Cristiano Ronaldo

We have finally included Ronaldo in our list of strikers as he regularly lines up front for Man United. He lives up front for United nowadays and he’s still as ageless and breathtaking as he ever was. Age is just a number for him. He is still pushing himself everyday to be one of the world’s best.

He may not necessarily be as explosive to watch, as he watch in his earlier years, but he has done what he needed to do to survive at the top of the game, and the numbers speak for themselves.

4. Harry Kane

The winner of the Premier League Golden Boot during 2020/21, Kane also bagged the most assists in the division. Kane soared from Tottenham reserve to becoming one of the best strikers on the planet since 2014.

He became a regular starter for Tottenham in the 2014–15 season, in which he scored 31 goals across the campaign, 21 of which in the league, and was named the PFA Young Player of the Year. Kane finished the top scorer of both the 2015–16 and the 2016–17 Premier League seasons and won the Golden Boot.

Finishing is Kane’s standout attribute, but he’s also a brilliant passer who often drifts into deeper areas to pick up possession and bring team-mates into play. And although the 28-year-old isn’t the quickest, he’s an expert at finding half a yard of space in and around the penalty area. A true all-rounder.

3. Karim Benzema

Karim Benzema is ageing like a fine wine. He scored 23 La Liga goals during the 2020-21 season and has already scored 17 goals in 20 La Liga games this season. Over the years, his scoring rate has been phenomenal for the capital club. The French forward is now the fourth-highest scorer in Real Madrid history with 302. Signed from Lyon 13 years ago, the 34-year-old certainly has a knack for being in the right place at the right time.

In addition to his goalscoring, Benzema is indeed known for his willingness and ability to drop into deeper or wider positions and either link-up play with midfielders as a number 10. He also sits top of the club’s all-time assists leaderboard with 152. Not bad for a striker.

2. Erling Braut Haaland

From relative nobody to one of Europe’s big things in a couple of seasons, the Norwegian’s explosive bursts and formidable finishing earned him the tag of one of Europe’s biggest prospects. He has scored 76 goals for the German giants Dortmund while winning several trophies on the way.

The 21-year-old has the world at his feet and has even displayed his talents against Europe’s elite. He’s rapid, he’s beefy and he can find the corner of the net with his eyes closed; not only that but he has a habit of delivering when it matters.

1. Robert Lewandowski

A complete forward, who epitomizes everything and anything you’d want from a striker in your side, the Pole is insanely consistent. He bags goals, goals, and more goals, goes on crushing scoring rampages, and also acts as the perfect foil to bring his teammates into play.

The 33-year-old remains one of the best strikers in the world right now, as he continues to demonstrate at Bayern Munich. Lewandowski has broken the 40-goal barrier in all competitions in each of the last four full seasons, and his touch, movement, and link-up play are still outstanding.
