The most important thing that a striker does is score goals and loads of them, and at the end of the day, goals are what matter the most in football. The striker is a player who has all the limelight and he is tracked by the best defender in the opponent's squad.
The striker needs to have good dribbling abilities, should be able to keep hold of the ball, his movement off the ball should be top notch and above them all, he should have good finishing abilities.
The Premier League is home to some of the best strikers in the world. The English league is full of different strikers ranging from a target man to a false nine. This season in the Premier League, some forwards have endured mixed fortunes but some have stood above the rest. Therefore, without further ado, let us have a look at the best of them.
Here are the 5 best strikers in the Premier League at the moment:
#5 Callum Wilson
Callum Wilson is having a brilliant season for Eddie Howe's Bournemouth. After battling injuries last season, the England international has come into his own this season. The 26-year-old striker uses his agility, speed, strength and his size to trouble the opposition defenders. Wilson is a proper number nine who is quick enough to run into the channels, big enough to hold the ball, has brilliant finishing abilities, and has a brilliant touch in him.
Due to his recent performances, he has been linked with a big money move to Chelsea and if he continues to produce this kind of performances every week, the Cherries will have a tough task of keeping their star striker at the club.
In terms of stats this season in the Premier League, Callum has scored 10 goals and provided five assists with 45 percent shot accuracy. He is versatile as a finisher, having scored five goals with his right foot, two with his left foot, and three headers.
