5 most underrated forwards in the world right now
In the last decade, European football has remodelled a lot in terms of the transfer policies followed by the clubs. Each club from the elite category wants to spend big on top-notch, in-demand goal-scorers to secure their services.
While the big names with the likes of Ronaldo, Messi, Salah, Neymar, Harry Kane etc., are dominating the headlines, some highly exceptional talents around the European leagues go unnoticed. With the growing competition in European football, the elite clubs are chasing top-notch forwards who would be vital for their attacking tactics and would deliver when and where needed. However, there are plenty more strikers who are performing well for their less-known clubs on the European level.
Thankfully, European football leagues give the home to some of the top-notch forwards in the world, who are leading the attacks for their teams and might be in demand for some of the European elites to cover for their regular players or even start their own legacy with the club. Let's take a look at some of the best-underrated strikers in the world, this season.
#5 Christian Stuani
Following a brilliant debut season with Girona, the Uruguayan has carried his form into this season, as well. The 32-year-old is a top-quality centre-forward known for his exceptional finishing abilities.
The Girona striker came into the spotlight when he starred against Real Madrid as the minnows stunned the European giants at the Estadi Montilivi, last season. Ever since his arrival in Girona's lineup, the Uruguayan has been the man to look upon when goals are needed.
With 21 goals to his name, Stuani finished on the fifth spot for the Pichichi, last season. However, the striker is currently the third top-scorer in the Spanish league, only behind Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. With Munir El Haddadi's departure to Sevilla last week, the Spanish giants were looking at Christian Stuani to cover for Luis Suarez, who remains the only striker in their squad.
