We come to the inspiration for this list, David Luiz.
I'm well aware of the fact that Luiz doesn't have nearly as a good a scoring record as any of the guys on this list, so don't lambast me in the comments section for saving his slide for last on that basis.
However, if you were to move Luiz up top, I think you'd find he'd be just as good a centre-forward as any of the guys on this list.
Going back to Matt Le Tissier, the English legend summed up Luiz's problem in a sentence:
All his better attributes are most suited to being in the last third of the pitch, while all his worst attributes are least suited to being in the defensive third - and he is a liability there.
David Luiz has had games where he's looked a magnificent defender (check the video for highlights from his performance against Manchester City).
The problem is that these games are few and far between, and we often see the Luiz that played against Manchester United in the video above, and not the one that showed up against Manchester City.
Many defenders, such as Sergio Ramos and Thomas Vermaelen, have managed to be successful defenders at the highest level despite their strong tendencies to get involved in their team's offense.
If Luiz can clean up the mistakes in his defensive game, he'll be able to join the company of this elite group.
Otherwise, Chelsea may just be better served throwing him on as a centre-forward off the bench in the dying minutes of their games.
