If you take a peek at the top of the Premier League scoring charts right now, there’s a refreshing essence because the slots are made up by Leicester City duo Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, not to mention Watford’s Odion Ighalo.
Scoring a combined 25 goals already this term between them, it goes to show that Premier League dreams can come true for lesser players and especially Vardy who was playing non-league football with Stocksbridge Park Steels as recently as 2010.
We’ve seen some great goalscorers down the years in the Premier League, namely Alan Shearer, Matt Le Tissier, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Thierry Henry among others and who’s to say the current leader Vardy can’t hold on to top spot all season long although it’d be a tough ask.
We saw with the likes of Harry Kane who burst onto the scene last term that confidence is everything in front of goal and can lead to some previously unfancied names becoming regular goalscorers at the very highest level.
We always like to have a debate here in the Football Transfer Tavern so today, we’ve devised a list of who the majority of our punters believe to be the five best strikers in the Premier League at the moment.
