Top 10 Best Strikers In The Premier League 

Sergio Aguero

1. Sergio Aguero

    • Full Name: Sergio Leonel Aguero
    • Date of Birth: 2nd June 1988
    • Place of Birth: Argentina
    • Nationality: Argentina
    • Playing position: Forward

Sergio Aguero following his profile was born on the 2nd day of June of the year 1988, he is an Argentine professional soccer player who holds up the forward playing position in the premier league and also plays for the Argentine National team as well. Aguero is ranked first as one of the best strikers in the premier league due to outstanding performance in the football field. This superstar notably began his football career on the 5th of July of the year 2003, and he became the youngest player of the Argentine premier division.

Later on, this famous star moved to Europe to feature as a member of a La Liga team giant known as “Atletico Madrid” following a transfer fee of 23 million pounds. This football star has notably made a name for himself after scoring 101 goals in 234 appearances, and this called the attention of top European clubs. Following this, Aguero moved to join the premier league side “Manchester City in the year 2011, July precisely for an undisclosed transfer fee which was assumed to be 35 million Pounds.

Moving to the premier league side as a new star, he scored a 94th minute goal to earn the victory for his team against Queen Park Rangers in his last debut season match to earn his club the league title for the first time in 44 years.

Though he experiences recurring injury spells, Sergio Aguero has maintained his impressive ground as one of EPL’s most consistent strikers for a number of seasons. Sergio Aguero hardly suffers goal drought when he is in the game and this has given him a remarkable goal-scoring record in the EPL. 

A long-time favourite of many Manchester City fans as well as enemies, Sergio Aguero really produces the goods. The Manchester City striker is heading into the final stages of his career, but he showed that he still has a sharp predatory instinct in front of goal with 21 goals in the Premier League this term.

Now level with Newcastle Legend with 11 hattricks in the English Premier League, Sergio Aguero only needs one more hattrick to break the record and become immortal.

Mohamed Salah

2. Mohamed Salah

    • Full Name: Mohammed Salah Hamed Mahrous Ghaly
    • Date of Birth: 15th of June 1992
    • Nationality: Egypt
    • Playing Position: Forward

Mohammed Salah is an Egyptian professional soccer player given birth to on the 15th of June of the year 1992. This famous star comes up ranking second as the top best striker in the premier league. Moving down to how this famous star started, Mohammed Salah started his senior or professional career in the year 2010 with the Egyptian premier league side Cairo club “El Mokawloom”, of which later he departed and joined the Switzerland league team “Basel” for an undisclosed transfer fee.

Playing with the Switzerland team in his debut season, Salah won the league title for Basel, and following his outstanding performance that year he won the SAFP Golden player Award. After an outstanding performance from the Egyptian star, he became attractive to the premier league side “Chelsea” and they couldn’t help but get him over to their side. Salah was transferred to the premier league side “Chelsea” in the year 2014 for £ 11 million.

However, following his transfer move to Chelsea, Salah was used sparingly in his debut season and was later granted the access to go on loan to the Seria A clubs Florentina and Roma of which he was later permanently signed for the fee of £15 million.

While in the Seria A side, Salah was recorded for a superb performance, and later on, moved back to the premier league as he joined “Liverpool” for £36.9 million in the year 2017.

The mercurial Egyptian hitman had to endure a doubtful first few months of the season though, and although he seemed to have found his rhythm again, he just couldn’t do better than the 22 goals he scored this term unlike last seasons 32 goals. Even when the going was tough, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp continued to show faith in his star striker, giving him close to 4000 minutes on the pitch, with the belief that Salah would find his form and confidence. What was the result?

He showed some glimpses of his electric pace, superb balance, and sterling finishing ability which has seen him top the scorer’s chart for the second year running. He was also a principal reason for Liverpool giving eventual Champions Manchester City a good run for their money in the League this year. He may yet round off the season with a gold medal around his neck, as Liverpool are set to become Champions League Winners, having secured a spot in the final of this season’s event.

Sadio Mane

3. Sadio Mane

    • Full Name: Sadio Mane
    • Date of Birth: April 10th, 1992
    • Nationality: Senegal
    • Playing Position: Forward

Sadio Mane has been an important contributor to the Liverpool success. While the main focus has always been Mohammed Salah, many of the important goals have actually come from Sadio Mane. It seems like Mohammed Salah holds them back while Sadio Mane does the damage. The laurels are still pouring in, and so it looks like we may continue to have a very happy Sadio Mane for some time to come. When we talk about Sadio Mane it seems unfair not to mention his charity efforts. The proud African emissary lives a simple life; choosing to spend money on making the lives of others better. 

Jamie Vardy

4. Jamie Vardy

    • Full Name: Jamie Richard Vardy
    • Date Of Birth: 11th January 1987
    • Club: Leicester City
    • Nationality: England
    • Position: Striker

If we compare strikers to predatory animals then we should compare Jamie Vardy to a Puma. He is not the most physical, or the most involved in games. He doesn’t seem to like the spotlight very much either. But what does he have? Speed and precision! He is a specialist at hiding in the corners, or behind opponents like a hunter on the prowl, watching an unsuspecting prey, and pouncing when they least expect it.

When he gets in front of a defender it seems impossible to catch him, and that no doubt has helped him get on the scorer’s chart even at a Leicester City side that has sometimes fumbled and stumbled.

He has quite a number of goals to his name this season, and that puts him among the higher echelon of strikers in the English Premier League. He was only bested by 3 other strikers, all of whom lay claim to stardom, and play with top quality midfielders who can produce top quality service.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

5. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    • Full Name: Pierre Emerick Emiliano Francois Aubameyang
    • Date of Birth: 18th June 1989
    • Place of Birth: Laval France
    • Nationality: Gabon
    • Playing position: Forward

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a professional footballer who holds up the role of a striker in the premier league and also captains the Gabonese National team. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang notably began his senior professional career in the year 2008 following his promotion from the youth setup in Ac Milan.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang takes home the Golden Shoe Award in his very first season in the English Premier League- you don’t do that unless you are world-class! His 2 goals on the final day of the season guaranteed that he too got a share of the Glory, as he finished with 22 goals, at par with the Liverpool duo of Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah.

Arsenal are beginning to take a new shape under the guidance of Unai Emery and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been the man they have turned to for goals. The former Borussia Dortmund striker reached double figures before Christmas and closed the Campaign as high as anyone.

If Aubemayang does could do so well in his first showing in England just imagine what he can do after he properly adjusts to the physical and mental demands of the English Premier League.

6. Danny Ings

    • Full Name: Daniel Williams John Ings
    • Date of Birth: July 23rd, 1992
    • Place of Birth: Winchester, United Kingdom
    • Nationality: English
    • Playing position: Forward

Danny Ings has always had the potential, but a lack of playing time during his adventure at Liverpool recently might have left him slightly fazed. Fortunately, it appears that the Englishman has rebounded well from the ill-fated loan move and is banging in goals right left and center for his beloved Southampton. There are not many players who have the kind of flair for goal scoring as Danny Ings does; he seems to do it without any effort at all. Right foot, Left foot, headers; it seems that Danny Ings can score with the slightest touch of the ball. If only he was playing at a better club with a more positive attitude then, he could get the kind of glory that his talent deserves.

7. Marcus Rashford

    • Full Name: Marcus Rashford
    • Date of Birth: October 31st, 1997
    • Place of Birth: Wythenshawe, United Kingdom
    • Nationality: English
    • Playing position: Forward

Marcus Rashford of Manchester United is a tall, skillful, and purposeful forward. We believe that Marcus Rashford can be much better than what we see presently if given the opportunity at a club with a more positive outlook.

Marcus Rashford does not shy from taking on two defenders on his way to goal-a quality that we have not seen very much in the English Premier League very recently. This bravery coupled with the skill and competence which he already possesses makes Marcus Rashford a rare gem in English football. His only drawback at the moment is his current Manchester United environment.

8. Calvert-Lewin

    • Full Name: Dominic Calvert-Lewin
    • Date of Birth: March 16th, 1997
    • Place of Birth: Sheffield, United Kingdom
    • Nationality: English
    • Playing position: Forward

Dominic Calvert Lewin wears the number 9 shirt for Everton. This is a well-earned shirt number because the Englishman who is still in his early 20’s has already established himself as a striker who is capable of producing goals in double figures on a consistent basis. His strength, pace, and shooting are good, but a little work on his positioning could help him receive the ball in dangerous areas on a more steady basis, leading to more goals.

Calvert Lewin is a man for the future, and Everton will surely want to keep him in their plans to the years to come. 

9. Raul Jimenez 

    • Full Name: Raul Alonso Jimenez Rodriguez
    • Date of Birth: March 5th, 1991
    • Place of Birth: Tepeji, Hidalgo, Mexico
    • Nationality: Mexican
    • Playing position: Forward

Raul Jimenez of Wolverhampton Wanders is a joy to watch! He makes counter-attacking football look easy and beautiful. Wolverhampton Wanders have developed this style of football in which they basically play at energy-saving mode for much of the game, while they wait for their opponents to attack. Once they get the ball however, they switch gears and turn the matter around. In a matter of seconds, they get the ball forward, and with Raul Jimenez as their main danger-man, they put the ball in the net before their opponents are even aware of what is happening. To play this kind of football you need strikers who have speed, control, and an eye for goal. 

Harry Kane

10. Harry Kane

    • Full Name: Harry Edward Kane
    • Date of birth: 28th of July, 1993
    • Nationality: England
    • Place of Birth: Walthamstow
    • Playing Position: Forward

Harry Edward Kane is an English professional football player who holds up the role of a striker in the premier league and has been notably doing a great job as he is one of the best strikers in the premier league. This famous star holds up the Captain title for his England National Team. However, this England star started his professional football career in the English premier league side “Tottenham Hotspur” after being promoted from the youth academy of the team to the senior at the tender age of 16 of which he didn’t at initially stage feature for the club but was rather loaned out on several occasions to clubs in the premier league such as Leyton Orient, Millwall, Leicester City, and Norwich City.

Well, we may as well say this has contributed to his success as he had gained experience and have now become one of the best players in the premier league following his outstanding performance after his loan tour back to Tottenham Hotspur.

Harry Kane’s early success at Tottenham saw him record 21 league goals for the North London side in the 2014-15 season. In the subsequent EPL campaign, the sharpshooter maintained his brilliant form and bagged 25 league goals. In the recent past, 25-year-old Kane recorded the impressive total of 29 league goals for Tottenham and this gave him his second EPL golden boot award in the 2016-17 season. With his striking performances in the past three seasons, Harry Kane has carved out a spectacular niche as a top-flight striker and one of the current best striker in the premier league, which should attract a massive buy from a big-spending side.

For the concluding season, if not for his injury he would no doubt have done far better, at least For much of the Season, it looked like Harry Kane was carrying Tottenham Hotspurs on his back, as he kept getting the goals. As a matter of fact, at one time during the season, he actually led the goals chart and was closely followed by Mohammed Salah.

When the 25-year-old suffered that lateral ligament injury in that League clash against Manchester City, it looked like Tottenham Hotspurs would not survive without him. But they did, and now due to heroics by Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and Dele Ali, Tottenham are in the final of the Champions League for the first time in their history.

Harry Kane has 17 finishing as well as he has in any of his previous seasons in Tottenham. Take a look at his statistics: 2015/2016 he had 25, in the 2016/ 2017 season he had 29, in the 2017/ 2018 season he had 30 goals. Harry Kane is a phenomenal player, make no mistake about it!

Hopefully, Tottenham number 10 can shake off this injury set back and give us something of an epic comeback.

Worthy Mentions

  • Callum Wilson

    • Full Name: Callum Eddie Graham Wilson
    • Date of Birth: 27th of February, 1992
    • Nationality: England
    • Place of Birth: Coventry, England
    • Club: Bournemouth
    • Playing position: forward

Callum Wilson is a professional player in the English premier league as he plays the forward role position in his club and also the England National Team.

In full gallop, Bournemouth attack like Lions. Callum Wilson, therefore, should be the Lion King! This black stallion of an Englishman fits perfectly to Bournemouth’s counter-attacking style of play. He is athletic, strong, aggressive, has good body balance, and most of all he has an eye for goal.

He will no doubt be despised by Brighton fans after his contributions in the 5-0 home defeat they suffered at the hands of Bournemouth, even though he only score twice and set up another.

Callum Wilson has 14 goals to his name this season, and he has his name on the lips of many a football club, as it is rumored that there is a silent bidding war for his services.

  • Richarlison

    • Full Name: Richarlison de Andrade
    • Date of Birth: 10th May 1997
    • Nationality: Brazil
    • Club: Everton
    • Playing position: forward

One day Richarlison was playing for Watford, the next day he was playing for Everton. Well, perhaps he saw better opportunities coming his way if he made the switch.

With the transfer fee reportedly in the region of 35 million pounds, Everton – a famously stingy club have made a huge investment in the Brazilian.

His 13 goals this season in the English Premier League will no doubt put Evertonian minds, both at the stands and in the board-room at rest. He is super quick, skillful, and plays with the same kind of determination you see in Eden Hazard.

  • Alexandre Lacazette

    • Full Name: Alexandre Lacazette
    • Date of Birth: 28th of May, 1991
    • Nationality: France
    • Playing Position: Forward

Alexandre Lacazette came into the limelight following his membership with the Lyon Academy where he made his debut as a professional at his tender age of 19 as he aided the club to victory as they won the Coupe de France and the Trophee des Champions in the year 2012.

Alexandre Lacazette is part of Arsenal’s attacking force and was often described as the team’s main striker at the time Olivier Giroud was restricted to the bench. Currently, the French international is considered Arsenal’s second-biggest signing following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s significant move to the Emirates Stadium. At the start of the current EPL campaign, Lacazette proved to be quite impressive and this brought about the concern that he might emerge as the lasting solution to Arsenal’s inconsistent choice of a top striker. However, through the mid-way of the season, Lacazette’s form decline coupled with an injury setback triggered doubts about his consistency.

As a talented player, Alexandre Lacazette boasts of some proficiency which signifies that he can threaten a dogged defense line and get himself a goal. However, his recent shaky performance coupled with the competition he is getting from Aubameyang evokes doubts about his career at Arsenal.

  • Salomon Rondon

    • Full Name: Jose Salomon Rondon Gimenez
    • Date of Birth: 16th September 1989
    • Nationality: Venezuela
    • Playing position: forward

Salomon Rondon is noted as one of the best strikers in the premier league following the fact that he is a professional footballer who plays in the premier league as well as his National team at the international level, Randon Plays for the Venezuela national team and he has notably won three Copa America for his National team.
