Romelu Lukaku's Manchester United spell might not have gone according to plan, but he is showing his quality for Antonio Conte's Inter Milan.

Lukaku joined Inter Milan from Manchester United in 2019 for a club-record fee of £67 million. The Belgium international has proved to be worth the splurge, having already made 86 appearances in all competitions for the club and scoring 60 goals.

The 27-year old has a good injury record, having been a constant for West Bromwich Albion, Everton and later Manchester United. He now looks set to lead Inter Milan to a Serie A title.

#2 Adama Traore (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Well-renowned for his physique, Adama Traore's pace, dribbling ability and sheer strength all make him an important player for Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A product of La Masia, Barcelona's famed youth academy, Traore spent time with Aston Villa and Middlesbrough before joining Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2018 for £18 million. The 25-year old has been pivotal since joining Wolves, with manager Santo utilizing him as a winger and as a wing-back.

The Spain international is yet to score or assist in the league this season, despite having made 28 Premier League appearances. He has recently been linked with a return to Barcelona, as well as a move to Liverpool.

#1 Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)

One of the fittest athletes in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo's dedication knows no bounds.

Regarded as one of the greatest footballers to have played the game, Ronaldo continues to dominate discussions. The 36-year old is one of Serie A's best players and unarguably Juventus' most important attacking option.

The 36-year old broke records at Manchester United and Real Madrid before joining Juventus and has not stopped in Italy. The Portugal international has made 35 appearances in all competitions this season for the Old Lady, scoring 31 goals. Once the domestic season ends, Ronaldo will be keen to play a starring role for Portugal at the Euros.
