Luis Suarez, Robert Lewandowski, Edinson Cavani, Karim Benzema and Diego Costa are some of football’s top strikers, but Harry Kane may well be the most in demand.
There are other centre forwards whose best days may still have to come and the market for those players is more competitive than ever.
Great sides from across Europe like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich or Paris Saint-Germain threaten to open the chequebook in a big way in search of a No. 9 who is a guarantee and not a gamble.
There are the likes of Romelu Lukaku (25), Roberto Firmino (27), Lorenzo Insigne (27) and Sergio Aguero (30) who form another group of centre forwards who show no signs of dipping in performance, although there is one who is above them all.
That is Harry Kane, thanks to his age, progression and ability to score and provide goals.
The Tottenham striker, as is usual for him, hasn’t started the year in the best form but seems to have picked things up with six goals in 13 games in all competitions.
His performances have became ever more prominent and in the last two games against Barcelona in the Champions League and Spain on Monday in the Nations League, he once more demonstrated his value.
Although he didn’t score in Seville, he was the axis by which Gareth Southgate disarmed La Roja’s defence, in particular Sergio Ramos and Nacho, with the Real Madrid duo having no answer to him.
The price tag being put on Kane’s head in England is around 200 million euros.
Of course, the market doesn’t offer many more reliable centre forward options than the Spurs star.
