first_imgNo amount of pretty passing, silky skills, fancy footwork, possession and high pressing can win you a game if you don’t get the ball over the line.With that in mind, it’s key for teams to have plenty of quality in their forward line, with most opting to have at least three senior strikers on their books.But with some players misfiring this season and others unable to force their way into their respective teams, it’s likely there will be some movement before the January transfer window ends.So which strikers are available and ready to boost your team’s chances of glory? talkSPORT takes a look.Click the right arrow above to find out the top ten forwards available in January… 2. Nolito (Celta Vigo) – Arsenal are this man’s suitors in the Premier League, while Barcelona appear very keen on re-signing the player who was once a forward for their B team. The 29-year-old has been superb in Galicia but would cost around €18m, even though they’ve just snapped up French striker Claudio Beauvue. 7 7 5. Moussa Dembele (Fulham) – No, not that one, although Tottenham are interested in this young Frenchman, which could make things really complicated and make Stan Collymore’s head explode during commentary. The 19-year-old has impressed with the Cottagers this season but he can leave on a free at the end of the campaign, which could persuade them to sell up for under £5m. 7 7. Jackson Martinez (Atletico Madrid) – Click the right arrow above to find out what other top strikers are available this January… – Without a Liga goal since October, the Colombian has struggled to replicate the sensational goal-getting he was renowned for at Porto. In total the 29-year-old has hit two strikes in 14 appearances and his employers could attempt to cut their losses and sell the player on in the January transfer window. Tottenham reportedly bid £23m for the player who cost £26.8m in the summer. 7 3. Sebastien Haller (Utrecht) – We know it’s best to be wary about signing strikers from the Eredivisie, but France Under-21 international Haller doesn’t appear to be a flash in the pan. A regular at all youth levels for his nation, the player is in his second campaign with Utrecht and had already been amongst the goals for Auxerre. He won’t cost too much and will have sell on value too if he does flop. 1. Ezequiel Lavezzi (Paris Saint-Germain) – With his contract ending at the end of the current campaign, the Argentine has several options but PSG could decide to cash in this month with the forward barely making an impact this term. Chelsea and Manchester United are amongst the teams interested in signing him and his experience will make him a wanted man. 7 7 7 4. Saido Berahino (West Brom) – It’s all gone a bit wrong for the striker since a move to Tottenham failed to materialise in the summer and is now a substitute more often than he a starter in Tony Pulis’ team. If he wanted to switch clubs before, he must certainly want to now and is likely to welcome any interest, even from a struggling Premier League outfit. 6. Patrick Bamford (Chelsea) – The youngster’s first foray in the Premier League ended early with the player returning from a loan spell at Crystal Palace having made just two starts, both in the League Cup, and seven substitute appearances. His prolific form on loan at Middlesbrough and Derby in recent years still makes the 22-year-old a wanted man and he could be an able back up for a team in the lurch. last_img read more
