All the best strikers (ST & CF) on FIFA 20

FIFA 20's shooting mechanics have given most players the ability to bag a goal, but a reliable goal provider is perhaps the most crucial part of the modern football team.

Height, pace and power were the attributes that strikers of the past needed to succeed, but now the best attacking players come in all shapes and sizes, each with their own unique style of play.

This piece features the very best strikers and centre-forwards in the world, ranging from tall physical players like Robert Lewandowski to their smaller, trickier counterparts like Antoine Griezmann.

Keep reading for more information on the best strikers and centre-forwards in FIFA 20.

Cristiano Ronaldo (OVR 93 - POT 93)

Age: 34 

Position: ST, LW

Club: Piemonte Calcio (Juventus)

Country: Portugal

Work rate: High/ Low

Best stats: 96 reactions, 95 composure, 95 shot power

Career Mode cost: £73.7 million (Release Clause: £86.9 million)

Wage: £365,000 a week

FUT price: 1.57m PS4 / 1.39m Xbox One

Cristiano Ronaldo is capable of playing on the wing as well as down the middle, and is rather unlucky to be labelled the second best footballer of his generation (behind Barcelona's Lionel Messi).

Ronaldo has always utilised his pace on and off the ball, using dribbling and flair (95 composure) to embarrass defenders and goalkeepers alike. If you want him in your FIFA 20 squad, you'll have to pay a premium price.

Robert Lewandowski (OVR 90 - POT 90)

Age: 30

Position: ST

Club: Bayern Munich

Country: Poland

Work rate: High/ Medium

Best stats: 91 positioning, 90 reactions, 90 finishing

Career Mode cost: £90.1 million (Release Clause: £110.6 million)

Wage: £221,000 a week

FUT price: 42.5k PS4 / 45k Xbox One

Robert Lewandowski is a prolific goalscorer who is regarded by pundits as one of the best strikers in the modern game.

A well-rounded forward, he is said to possess all the necessary qualities of a number nine: height, strength, balance, pace, and intelligent movement.

Lewandowski won't be coming to your squad cheap - his price tag in career mode is over £90 million, and he is sitting around the 45k mark in Ultimate Team. Get saving!

Kylian Mbappe (OVR 89 - POT 95)

Age: 20

Position: ST, RW

Club: PSG

Country: France

Work rate: High/ Low

Best stats: 96 acceleration, 96 sprint speed, 92 agility

Career Mode cost: £140 million (Release Clause: £172.5 million)

Wage: £140,000 a week

FUT price: 1.17m PS4 / 962k Xbox One

Kylian Mbappe is a huge talent, who at the age of 20 is already being compared to the likes Thierry Henry and Pele.

Mbappe's composure, clinical finishing and dribbling make him a highly skillful player, and he has a massive physical presence for such a lean build.

If you have one million Xbox One coins lying around, you'll only just be able to get him into your Ultimate Team.

Harry Kane (OVR 89 - POT 91)

Age: 25

Position: ST

Club: Tottenham

Country: England

Work rate: High/ High

Best stats: 93 positioning, 94 finishing, 91 composure

Career Mode cost: £96.1 million (Release Clause: £143.8 million)

Wage: £198,000 a week

FUT price: 26k PS4 / 29k Xbox One

Harry Kane is a tall and physical striker who loves to score goals. Kane has incredibly high finishing (94) and composure (91) stats, and always knows when to pop up inside the box to get on the end of a pass.

You can get Kane for as little as 26k in Ultimate Team on the PS4, but if you want him in career Mode, you'll have to compensate Spurs with a figure just short of £100 million. Good luck!

Antoine Griezmann (OVR 89 - POT 89)

Age: 28

Position: CF, ST, LW

Club: Barcelona

Country: France

Work rate: High/ High

Best stats: 90 positioning, 90 ball control, 89 finishing

Career Mode cost: £90.7 million (Release Clause: £127.3 million)

Wage: £333,000 a week

FUT price: 274k PS4 / 225k Xbox One

A threat in any game he plays, Antoine Griezmann is always working hard for his team. Griezmann possesses excellent technique, vision and finishing, backed by his finishing attributes (89).

Griezmann is a hot commodity at the moment, selling anywhere between 225-275k in ultimate Team and a whopping £90 million in career mode. If you want him in your squad, other positions may suffer.

Luis Suarez (OVR 89 - POT 89)

Age: 32

Position: ST

Club: Barcelona

Country: Uruguay

Work rate: High/ Medium

Best stats: 92 reactions, 91 finishing, 92 positioning

Career Mode cost: £75.4 million (Release Clause: £97.8 million)

Wage: £320,000 a week

FUT price: 37.5k PS4 / 39k Xbox One

Luis Suarez is so technically gifted that he can probably play anywhere, but up top is where he enjoys most. Suarez is known for his direct runs and dribbling flair, matched by his clinical finishing (91) and impressive reading of play.

To get the gifted forward in your Career Mode squad, you'll have to cough up at least £75 million coins, if not more.

Sergio Aguero (OVR 89 - POT 89)

Age: 31

Position: ST

Club: Manchester City

Country: Argentina

Work rate: High/ Medium

Best stats: 93 finishing, 93 positioning, 92 reactions

Career Mode cost: £83.8 million (Release Clause: £99.9 million)

Wage: £270,000 a week

FUT price: 257k PS4 / 228k Xbox One

Considered to be one of the best forwards in the world, Agüero is regarded as an all-out striker - he can also play alongside a strike partner, which he did at Atlético Madrid.

Aguero's finishing (93) along with his passing ability, positioning (93) and vision make him a well rounded striker, capable of picking out assists when suitable.

Aguero is listed at an eye-watering 257,000 coins in Ultimate team on PS4, so get saving - the price is only going up.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (OVR 88 - POT 88)

Age: 30

Position: ST, LM

Club: Arsenal

Country: Gabon

Work rate: Medium/ Low

Best stats: 95 sprint speed, 93 acceleration, 90 positioning

Career Mode cost: £79.6 million (Release Clause: £97.5 million)

Wage: £185,000 a week

FUT price: 289k PS4 / 276k Xbox One

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's mind-boggling pace (95 sprint speed, 93 acceleration) has kept him in the spotlight on Ultimate Team for the past five years.

Aubameyang possesses the rare ability to sense when a goal is coming; his ability to get into a position at the right time and undetected is parallel to none, and for that reason his FUT price is massive. Gabon's most adorned forward is going for 289,000 coins on PS4, having just netted his 50th goal for Arsenal in record time.

Edinson Cavani (OVR 88 - POT 88)

Age: 32

Position: ST

Club: PSG

Country: Uruguay

Work rate: High/ High

Best stats: 93 positioning, 91 stamina, 91 reactions

Career Mode cost: £64.4 million (Release Clause: £78.3 million)

Wage: £176,000 a week

FUT price: 20k PS4 / 19.7k Xbox One

Edinson Cavani is a quick, strong, opportunistic modern-forward with an innate ability to read attacking play.

The versatile forward's strengths lie in his stamina, reactions and positioning - all of which keep him primed to pounce should an opportunity present itself (and it usually does).

Cavani is going for a bargain price of 20,000 coins in Ultimate Team, making him the best value-for-money buy of all the forwards in this piece.

Karim Benzema (OVR 88 - POT 88)

Age: 31

Position: CF, ST

Club: Real Madrid

Country: France

Work rate: Medium/ Low

Best stats: 90 ball control, 89 positioning, 87 composure

Career Mode cost: £76.1 million (Release Clause: £97.8 million)

Wage: £306,000 a week

FUT price: 14.5k PS4 / 15k Xbox One

Karim Benzema is a prolific forward, good in the air and capable of playing off the shoulders of the last defender.

While he was bagging goals for fun with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, the Frenchman's form has not dipped since losing the Portuguese front man to Juventus (Piemonte Calcio). Get him in your Ultimate team for just 15,000 coins, which is a bargain for a striker who has played amongst greatness for so many years.
