With the transfer window open, every top club is looking for that extra flair in front of goal to get them to the next level in competition.
Goals are the name of the game on this list, and these are the players most likely to produce them (in no particular order), wherever they end up playing in the 2012-2013 season.
Who would you add to this list? Would you take anyone away? Comment below.
Isaac Cuenca, a product of the renowned La Masia youth camp, made his first official appearance, first starting line up appearance, as well as his first goal, all in the month of October and he’s been a mainstay for the Blaugrana ever since. Not bad for someone who played for the third division of La Liga just a year ago.
Villa’s injury and Pedro’s inconsistent form has allowed Cuenca valuable experience to become a major goal threat for the seasons to come.
Givanildo Vieira de Souza's goalscoring record speaks for itself: 67 goals in 122 appearances for Porto. The Brazilian-born forward's goals have become invaluable for his club, leading them to the quadruple in 2011 (the Portuguese League, Portuguese Cup, Europa League, and Portuguese SuperCup) and the Portuguese League in 2012.
Much was talked about Hulk's lethal partnership with Falcao; however Hulk has proven that he could hold his own when his teammate left for Atletico Madrid. His consistency in front of goal has brought him a lot of attention, attracting Chelsea in particular. Goals will flow wherever this man plays.
This one is a given. His combination of goalscoring, tricks, have made him the premier attraction of the Brazilian league. The Brazilian international debuted in 2009 and has been lighting up his league ever since. It's only a matter of time before he leaves for a bigger club in Europe.
Already a Manchester United regular and England international, this kid's going places. Coming off of 40 total appearances and 12 goals for his club in the 2011-2012 season, the 21-year-old is on his way to to showcase his talents at the European Championship in a few days.
Keep an eye out for him to rack up the goals as his development continues.
His first season was lackluster in Chelsea, but Romelu Lukaku is just acclimating to his surroundings. Romelu Lukaku's presence is going to be all the more necessary upfront as Chelsea need a powerful striker with Didier Drogba gone.
Only 19 years old, the former Belgian league top scorer is going to be a goal-scoring threat for years to come.
One of the stars of coach Marcelo Bielsa's Athletic Bilbao, Iker Muniain has been one of the main proprietors of attack. Being dubbed "the Spanish Messi" is no easy feat, however the Bilbao youth product has held up to this moniker with his mazy runs last season and led the team to Europa League and Copa Del Rey finals appearances.
38 appearances, 20 goals, 15 assists. A two-time Ligue 1 player of the year. This man will score goals.
Recently confirmed to leave Lille, Hazard will be sorely missed in France. His grit and determination make him suitable to showcase his talents and play at his optimal best for the Premier League. At least, Chelsea certainly hopes so.
This man is the greatest player in the world at the moment. A three-time Balon D'or winner, the 2011-2012 season was his best scoring-wise.
60 appearances and 73 goals in all competitions, and breaking records along the way, the 24-year-old is on the path to establishing himself as the absolute best and will continue to do so with records like these.
The American international has finally found his goal-scoring touch. After leaving the New York Red Bulls for Villareal, Altidore has been on a total of three loan stints because of his inability to put the ball in the back of the net.
Following his transfer to Alkmaar Zaanstreek, the Dutch side has given him the opportunity to establish himself as a reliable forward. Altidore's 2011-2012 season ended with 15 goals in 34 appearances, which helped AZ to 4th place and a spot in the Europa League.
Borussia Dortmund's top scorer with 22 goals in the Bundesliga and a two-time Bundesliga champion with Dortmund, Robert Lewandowski will be taking his talents to Poland to represent the host nation in the European Championship.
His knack for scoring goals will be relied upon heavily by Poland as well as Borussia Dortmund in the years to come.
