Top 5 Strikers for lower Premier League teams

We've all been there, struggling for goals and wondering who to turn too. You ideally want to splash £20m on a star striker, however your measly transfer budget restricts you. But don't worry, here's five strikers you can turn too if you're struggling for goals in the Premier League.

5. Zach Clough

If your'e looking for a cheap false nine then look no further. Clough is a class act, and can easily do the job for a lower Premier League side. Aged just 20 Clough also has his prime days ahead of him, so will be a great striker for years in the game. He's fairly cheap as well, you could snap him up for under £4m.
  • Full Name - Zach Clough
  • Age - 20
  • Nationality - English
  • Club - Bolton
  • Position - STC
  • Transfer Value - £2.5m

4. Peter Crouch

I know what you're thinking, really, Peter Crouch? If you need a target man and you have little money, Crouch is your man. His stats are still decent, and he does scorer plenty of goals if used properly. He may not set the world alight, however he will get crucial goals and can be a key player for some lower Premier League outfits.
  • Full Name - Peter Crouch
  • Age - 34
  • Nationality - English
  • Club - Stoke City
  • Position - STC
  • Transfer Value - £325k

3.  Diego Rolan

The most expensive player on this list, however arguably the best because of his versatility. Rolan can be deployed both at Striker or on the Right flank, and he's equally as good at both. His pace tears defenses apart in the premier league, and with a good eye for goal he has the potential to fire you're side right up the table.

  • Full Name - Diego Rolan
  • Age - 22
  • Nationality - Uruguay
  • Club - Girondins De Bordeaux 
  • Position - STC/ AM (R)
  • Transfer Value - £12m

2.  Jordan Rhodes

A bit more pricey since his January move to Middlesbrough, however Jordan Rhodes is a man who will get 15+ a season. In his Blackburn days, you could pick the Scottish forward up for under £5m, now you'd be lucky to pay under £10m for him. However if you have the money, the 25 year old should be you're first choice.

  • Full Name - Jordan Rhodes
  • Age - 25
  • Nationality - Scottish
  • Club - Middlesbrough
  • Position - STC
  • Transfer Value - £8.5m

1. Luke De Jong

I remember back on FM12 I discovered De Jong, and i was instantly impressed. His career hasn't exactly took off as much as expected, however he is on of the best strikers on the game. In the air, he will win everything, and in the box he will slot away the majority of chances. De Jong will grab plenty of goals, if played up top by himself. Iv'e found when iv'e played him with another striker, he doesn't perform as well. Stick him up top on his own and hell do the job.

  • Full Name - Luuk De Jong
  • Age - 24
  • Nationality - Dutch
  • Club - PSV
  • Position - STC
  • Transfer Value - £4.9m
