If you’re a Premier League manager or owner in desperate need of a new striker, this summer initially represented the best opportunity to buy one, with Robert Lewandowski, Radamel Falcao, Edinson Cavani and Wayne Rooney all reportedly available for transfer.

But as the off-season has dragged on, it appears that the stellar list of forwards set for a new club has dwindled somewhat, with Falcao and Cavani set for a move to the French top flight, while Chelsea and Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski is now expected to move to Bayern Munich next summer, according to Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp.

With that in mind, and the Blues and the Red Devils still in the market for a new front man, we take a look at the TEN European strikers who will be available this summer if the price is right, and capable of performing at the highest level of the English top flight.
