top 7 strikers over the age of 30
Who is number 1?

The peak age for a footballer is supposed to be 24-28. However, these forwards have time and again shown that age is just a number. All the forwards on this list are above 30 and have scored (and are still scoring) a bucketload of goals for both club and country.

Most of these players on this list are focal points for their attack and are the undoubted stars of the team. The way these players are going, they look all set to go on and dominate world football for years to come.

Without much ado, let us take a look at the 7 best strikers above the age of 30:

#7 Aritz Aduriz (37) - Athletic Bilbao

Athletic Club v Real Madrid CF - La Liga
Aduriz still remains a key member of the Athletic Bilbao side

Aritz Aduriz is 37 years old now, and at an age where most footballers think about hanging up their boots, Aduriz is leading the line admirably for Athletic Bilbao. Aduriz has played the majority of his career at Bilbao although he has played for a number of Spanish clubs such as Valladolid, Mallorca, and Valencia.

After breaking into the first team of Bilbao at the age of 19, Aduriz had a decent spell at Valladolid. After 3 years there, he returned to Atheltic Bilbao but failed to make much of an impression due to the emergence of Fernando Llorente.

He moved on from Athletic to Mallorca where he put in some solid performances without being too spectacular. He had a good time at Mallorca and a decent first season at Valencia which gave him his first international cap for Spain.

However, after an indifferent second season at Valencia, Aduriz came back to his childhood club Bilbao where he has been amazingly consistent, scoring important goals at crucial times. This season as well, the Spain international has scored 8 goals in the league and scored an incredible 7 goals in 7 Europa League appearances.

Aduriz is undoubtedly an Athletic Bilbao legend.
