Teams are continually searching for that one player with the ability to finish, a predator that can take a team to the next level.

Below is a list of the best out and out strikers in world football right now!

Pierre-Emerick AubameyangPierre-Emerick-Aubameyang

Always blessed with unbelievable acceleration, he found the required composure and finishing to make it to the upper level of elite strikers.

The Gabon international contributed 39 goals and 12 assists in all competitions during a breakout campaign.

Taking Dortmund to the quarter-finals of the Europa League and a 2nd place finish in the Bundesliga in the process.

Gonzalo HiguainGonzalo Higuain

Everyone knows Gonzalo Higuain is a quality striker, but he made the jump from quality to world class with his record-shattering exploits in the Serie A last season.

Higuain had scored 24 and 29 goals for Napoli in all competitions in his two previous seasons since in the Serie A, but he took things to a different level last season, breaking Gunnar Nordahl’s record with his 36 goals in the Serie A.

He ended last season with 38 goals and 2 assists, prompting Juventus to break the bank to sign him for a reported 76.5 million.

Sergio AgueroSergio Augero

Since the 2007/08 season, only twice has Kun failed to hit the 20 goal mark in all competitions, 2009/10 and 2012/13.

Widely accepted as the most consistent striker currently in the Premier League, many believe Manchester City’s chance of winning the title is directly linked to the fitness of Kun Aguero.

Blessed with quick feet, intelligent movement, near impossible strength, and a remarkable nose for goal, Kun Aguero contributed 29 goals and 5 assists to Manchester City’s campaign last season. With an average strike rate of a goal every 107.55 minutes (as per ESPN), Sergio Aguero is officially the deadliest marksman to ever play in the Premier League.

Robert LewandowskiRobert_Lewandowski

It takes a special striker to outscore Aubameyang in the form he was in last season, and special is exactly what Robert Lewandowski is.

Since swapping Lech Poznan for Germany in 2010, Robert Lewandowski has proved himself time as one of most elite strikers in Germany, both in the colours of Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

He plundered 42 goals in all competitions last season, and also contributed 7 assists, finishing as the Bundesliga’s top scorer for the 2nd time in 3 seasons.

Luis SuarezLuis Saurez

Described as an assassin in front of goal by his manager, Luis Suarez is the most lethal out and out forward currently in world football.

Left foot, right foot, headers, overhead kicks, tap-ins, if there is a route to goal, rest assured that Suarez will find it.

Suarez has been so good over the last couple of months, many are tipping him to break the stranglehold Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have on the Balon d’Or. Last season, he scored an astonishing 59 goals in all competitions and contributed a remarkable 26 assists.

He opened his league campaign this season with another hat-trick, and it looks like there is no stopping the Uruguayan hitman again this year.
