Ranking the top 10 strikers in the world is always a difficult task. You can include 10 of the best players on Earth, but you'll always leave out a terrific striker.
Then there's the question of what makes a striker one of the best. Goals and assists are no brainers, but is it numbers or quality which truly determines a great striker?
Edinson Cavani and Andy Carroll have been impressive this season, but can these youngsters really be considered the top of the pack?
At the same time, Wayne Rooney and Fernando Torres, two of the most talented strikers in the world, have been suffering poor form as of late. Can they still be ranked among the best?
The list I've compiled contains 10 players who have proven in the past few years that they are quality strikers, and have also continued their impressive form in recent weeks.
