Top 3 best young centre forwards in the world at the moment
We are past the halfway mark of the 2018-19 season and we have seen some brilliant attacking talent on display this season. Some very young players are stepping up for their respective teams.
Playing as a centre forward brings many challenges and it is very tough for a young player to be the man who does the bulk of the scoring for the team.
This season we have seen many young players coming through the ranks and taking the responsibility. We seem to be entering into something of a golden age in terms of exciting centre forwards across the globe, and we take a look at some of the very best of them here.
So, without further ado, here are the top 3 young centre forwards in the world at the moment.
#3 Luka Jovic
Luka Jovic has been on fire for Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga this season. The 21-year-old has lit up the Bundesliga and is a part of that fabulous front three of Eintracht Frankfurt. A striker by trade and more than capable of playing in the number 10 role as well, Jovic has seen himself develop into a reliable front-man.
Jovic has a knack of being at the right place at the right time and is capable of providing a substantial output of goals, and at the age of 21, it is not very bad. Currently, on loan at Frankfurt, Jovic might strike the interest of a number of top European teams come summer.
In terms of stats in the Bundesliga this season, Jovic has scored 14 goals and made a further 4, with a shot accuracy of 55 per cent. He has won 46 per cent of his aerial duels and averages a goal every 94 minutes.
