Top 5: Centre Forwards

Top 5: Centre Forwards

Roque Santa Cruz managed 19 goals in 37 games during the 2007-08 season and City's attempts to sign him were well documented. After a mere four goals in 20 appearances in an injury plagued 2008-09 season, surely Mark Hughes can't still be contemplating spending in excess of £23m for the 27-year-old.

With Mario Gomez's imminent departure to Bayern Munich, many Manchester City fans will be wondering who we could possibly sign to fill the obvious gap in our attacking force.

Here is a list of some of the top continental targetmen in their respective leagues:



5.

Name: Marc Janko
Age: 25
Height: 6ft 5in
Nationality: Austrian
Club: Red Bull Salzburg (Austria)
Goals: 39 (in 34)




4.

3.

Age: 25
Height: 6ft 4in
Nationality: French
Club: Paris Saint-Germain (France)
Goals: 20 (in 32)




2.

Name: Edin Džeko
Age: 23
Height: 6ft 3.5in
Nationality: Bosnia and Herzegovina
Club: Wolfsburg (Germany)
Goals: 26 (in 32)

I don't think this article has come out right? (maybe just me, but the pictures are blank, and the first letter from every line is missing). anyway... Zlatan Ibrahimović dasn't really impressed me at all in the games against english clubs I've seen him play in. nor did Edin Džeko when we played them. If I were you, i'd keep going for David Villa. If only pompey had a bilionaire owner...

Wot, no Berbatov? LOL In all seriousness, I know we don't really like Diego Forlan, but surely he should have been included in that list?

hey carpet, good luck signing anything but dross. :-) I'm not sure who we should go for.... Out of that group, i've only seen Ibra play. I'm sure Cook will wrap up the Tevez transfer tomorrow morning.

The list comprises of Centre Forwards, not Strikers. Hence no Forlan at 5ft 11in or Villa at 5 ft 9in. Its obvious we need a big man up front.

If you weren't just a tad worred teddy, you'd would be here posting. Its called a freudian slip. Best of luck to Portsmouth and hope motor mouth has learnt his lesson. ADUG certainly shifted him in quick fashion. I hope that we can get someone with quality in to put away the chances we create.
