Who is the best striker in the world?

It's a question that has been pondered over for years and has been heavily debated by fans, players and managers of the world football community alike.

Is it Wayne Rooney, Didier Drogba or Fernando Torres? Maybe it's Dimitar Berbatov, Leo Messi or Edinson Cavani? Hey, these guys are scoring goals by the bucket-load this season!

But something that has rarely been looked at to determine a striker's quality is his effectiveness.

Which player converts the most goals per shot? What is, in a word, his efficiency?

In this slideshow, I present to you the 10 most effective strikers in the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Italian Serie A.

To make the list a player has to have scored at least 10 league goals this season, and then I will compare the number of goals scored to shots taken to provide you with the most efficient strikers in the top tier of European football!
