It is undisputed that strikers are among the most important players in a football team. They are responsible for scoring goals and helping their team win games. That’s why it’s so important to have a good striker in a top team.
In this post, we take a look at the 19 best strikers in the world right now. These players often make a difference on their team!
1. Robert Lewandowski
The Pole broke the 30-goal mark for the third time in four years in the 21-22 season. He’s a phenomenon, and at 33, he doesn’t seem to be slowing down. His value on the transfer market is a whopping €80m. Lewandowski is still one of the best footballers in the world.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest strikers of all time. The Portuguese star has scored countless goals in his career and shows no signs of slowing down. He is currently playing for Manchester United FC, and he is sure he will help them win games. His value on the transfer market is around 66 million euros.
3. Karim Benzema
Karim is one of the few players in the world who can always be counted on to score a goal. He is a persistent pressing player, and hardly anyone is as confident under pressure. Benzema could be forgiven for taking his foot off the gas at 34, but he seems to be getting more of a goal threat by the week.
At the moment he is one of the top footballers in the world. This is also confirmed by his market value of 210 million euros.
4. Kylian Mbappe
Mbappe sets the benchmark in France’s Ligue 1 with 44 in the 2020/21 season. At just 23 years old, the world champion has already scored over 125 goals in the French premier club.
His target for next season seems to be Real Madrid – with him in attack, the Spaniards could become even more unstoppable.
5. Erling Haaland
With a market value of €177m, Erling Haaland is one of the best young strikers out there. Haaland’s speed, strength, and remarkable composure have made him a desirable man who, after his stint at Borussia Dortmund, is now moving to Manchester City in England.
The Norwegian will almost certainly win the Ballon d’Or at some point. It could turn into something truly incredible.

6. Harry Kane
No other striker on this list combines goalscoring and creativity like the England captain, who is set to surpass 20 goals and 10 assists for the second straight season.
It’s possible Kane will be allowed to leave Tottenham this summer as planned. If someone picks him up next season, he’ll be an instant leader in the Premier League and Champions League.
7. Romelu Lukaku
Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku scored 30 goals for Inter FC and the Serie A title in the 2020/21 season. He currently plays for Chelsea, where he was the seventh most expensive player, the most expensive Belgian player ever. From a young age, Lukaku was a tall and physically strong striker with an eye for goal. He is known for using his physicality to easily get past defenders.
8. Dusan Vlahovic
Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic has been in impressive form since joining Juventus in January for around €70m, scoring 17 goals in Serie A by the end of December.
The Serb has scored in under 33 seconds and has been a good, if unspectacular, player for the club so far. At 22, the striker still has a bright future ahead of him.
9. Ciro Immobile
Immobile is one of the biggest climbers in Italy’s top flight. The Lazio striker has been Serie A’s top scorer for the past three years, scoring 20 or more goals each season.
His previous stints at Juventus and Borussia Dortmund didn’t work out, but the Euro 2020 winner seems content with his place in the world. At Lazio, he has achieved god-like status.
10. Andre Silva
RB Leipzig is happy to have Andre Silva, who has scored 29 goals in the Bundesliga. The Portuguese professional footballer comes from the academy of Porto. He impressed during his time in the reserves before making his first-team debut in 2015.
He moved from Eintracht Frankfurt to RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga for an alleged transfer fee of 23 million euros.
