5 -Sergio Agüero
Club: Manchester City
He’ll almost certainly burn a hole in your £100 million budget, but the Argentine striker may just be worth restructuring your squad for. Arguably the best striker in the Premier League, Sergio Agüero came within touching distance of last season’s Golden Boot award with 24 goals, despite playing at least six games fewer than his competitors for the prize.
Should injuries not rob him of many more games in the coming season, Manchester City fans will be rubbing their hands at the prospect of how fruitful the striker’s combination with new boss Pep Guardiola may be.
Throughout Catalan’s managerial career, his teams have scored no fewer than 80 league goals in a season, whereas 24 goals in all competitions is the bare minimum turned in by his side’s star striker, more often than not rising to 30 and beyond.
After Lionel Messi, Thomas Müller and Robert Lewandowski, Agüero follows a plethora of strikers widely expected to top the goal-scoring charts under the ex-Barcelona boss.
