Top 10 attackers from Europe's top leagues for 2016/17 season
This season has seen several teams who have sprung a surprise in Europe, and a few attackers who stood out.
#9 Paulo Dybala
What a player Dybala has been for Juventus this season! His partnership with Gonzalo Higuain has allowed the former Real Madrid striker to settle into life in Turin easily and made him deadly in front of goal too. Not only has Dybala helped Higuain, but he’s proven to a lot of people that his ability is outstanding and could easily be the best player in the world in about 2-3 years.
Dybala has the incredible talent of being able to make a goal-scoring opportunity out of practically nothing and can almost win a game on his own. His passion, drive, hunger and ambition has made him a fan favourite at Juventus, and it looks like he can be their new hero.

After missing a large portion of the season with a muscular problem, Dybala has done exceptionally well to find his form so quickly. One game that springs to mind is Juventus’ victory over Palermo recently, where a Dybala double and assist helped the Bianconeri pick up three valuable points, and helped boost Dybala’s stats this season to an impressive 13 goals and 7 assists.
Many people have linked Dybala with a move away from the Italian champions but if he was to stay in with the Bianconeri, he could be the player that future teams are built around, much like they were with club legend’s Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio and Alessandro Del Piero.
