There are a number of top strikers currently plying their trade in various clubs around Europe, with it being understood that if a team has to challenge for honours, then they need to have a top marksman in their ranks.

FourFourTwo recently named the top strikers in the world and here, we take a look at top five on the list.

1. Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)

Robert Lewandowski has established himself as the best striker in the world over the past three years, with the Polish hitman reaching heights that very few players have reached.

Lewandowski has been one of the main reasons why Bayern Munich have dominated the footballing sphere in the recent past and looking at his form, it does not seem like he will stop anytime soon.

2. Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund)

Widely hailed as the next big thing in football, Erling Haaland has been brilliant in front of goal ever since breaking into the sport with RB Salzburg in 2019.

The 21-year-old has scored a staggering 70 goals in just 69 games for Borussia Dortmund and his form has led to interest from a number of top European clubs.

3. Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain)

Tipped to be a future Ballon d'Or award winner, Kylian Mbappe has already shown why he is so highly rated, leading France to the 2018 World Cup title and excelling for Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG are desperate to hold on to the 22-year-old who has scored 138 goals in 184 appearances for them, though it looks very likely that he will make his dream move to Real Madrid next summer.

4. Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

Harry Kane might be having a poor season so far, but there is no doubt that he has been arguably the best striker in the Premier League for the past seven seasons.

The England skipper has already scored 228 goals for Tottenham Hotspur and it will be interesting to see whether he gets the move he wants away from the club next summer.

5. Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)

Cristiano Ronaldo completed a sensational return to Manchester United after a gap of 12 years earlier in the summer, and it is safe to say that he has been a success so far, scoring six goals in nine appearances.

The 36-year-old's arrival has led many to claim that United could challenge for trophies this season, and it will be interesting to see whether the Portugal icon can lead them to honours come the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
