The Big Five in Europe is blessed with some of the most dangerous forwards in the world. There are hosts who are famous goalscorers, such as Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema of LaLiga Santander, Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane of the Premier League, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr. in the French League, among others. Side is often seen as the primary source of goals, except for a few like Roberto Firmino, who specializes in other departments such as delving deeper and linking play. this chapter. In fact, there were a total of 19 players who had scored 15 league goals or more in the five major leagues in Europe, of whom all but four (Bruno Fernandez, Salah, Messi, Mbappe) were at the center of the attack. Here is a look at some of the top ten strikers of the 2020/21 season so far.Note: Only players who have played more than half of their matches will be considered as a striker in this list. # 10 Gerard Moreno | Villarreal Athletic Club – Villarreal – La Liga Santander, Gerard Moreno, producer of Villarreal Academy, is 10th in the list amid an impressive campaign with coach Unai Emery’s team. The Spaniard, who won the Zara Cup in 2019/20 after his season in which he scored 18 goals, is back where he left off last year. Moreno has been fantastic since his return to the club from Espanyol and also secured his place in Spain’s Luis Enrique side. The 28-year-old has appeared 18 times as the main striker for his team this season, scoring 13 goals and assorting five more. Overall, Moreno’s 24th LaLiga match resulted in a total of 19 goals and four assists, and he also has four goals and three assists in his name in the European Football League for the Yellow Submarine. Villarreal allowed him to play for other positions as well. Moreno ranks 98 percent among attackers in Europe for dribbles that complete at a rate of 2.69 per 90. The striker will have a formidable role to play for his team as they prepare to resume their campaign in the European League soon. # 9 Louis Muriel | Atalanta Atalanta BC v Spezia Calcio – Colombian Premier League star Luis Morell was never the most prolific striker during his stay in Europe before moving to Bergamo. His highest return in one season is 11 goals, a figure he has achieved on two separate occasions – for Udinese in 2013 and Sampdoria in 2017, but since his move to Atalanta, Muriel’s story has been very different. The 29-year-old has been largely used as a game changer on the bench for most of his time under Gian Piero Gasperini and has pushed back the manager’s faith in him and some others. After smashing 18 league goals last season in just ten matches (24 sub matches), Morell had already leveled his tally from last year with seven more assists despite nine matches remaining to play. South America ranks 99 percent of Europe over the past year for goals without penalty per 90 (1.24), touches in the penalty area per 90 (8.60), and 98 in attempts at shots (4.82) per 90 and for creating shots (5.39). Muriel’s brilliant free kick against Real Madrid in the Champions League match also suggests that he has more to his game than meets the eye. # 8 Andre Silva | Eintracht Frankfurt Borussia Dortmund – Eintracht Frankfurt – Portuguese striker Andre Silva has been one of the rising stars in Europe this season and certainly one of the most surprising names on this list. The former FC Porto player is known to be the heir to Cristiano Ronaldo of the Seleção national team by the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, but things did not go as he had hoped. Since moving to Eintracht Frankfurt, where he has established himself as one of the most talented strikers in Europe at the moment. Since his transfer, Silva has gone on to score an astonishing 22 league goals in 25 games for Die Adler in 2020/21 along with three assists. The 25-year-old is currently the fourth highest goalscorer in Europe in terms of league goals. With 0.71 goals without penalty kicks per 90, the Portuguese are ranked 96 per cent for attackers in Europe over the past year. Milan took a massive hit from the € 38 million transfer fee they paid him when they sold Silva for just € 9 million, and they could regret that decision if he continued to score at this colossal rate.
