Top Strikers to Look Out For in Football Manager 2021

Football Manager 2021 Best Strikers

Here's a list of the best strikers that you should definitely double-mark in Football Manager 2021. 


Few things in a Football Manager match-up can be quite as disheartening as an opposition striker going hot. When you need to sit there and watch your own number nine fluff chance after chance, it is even more disheartening to watch the opposition striker put chances away with utter precision. With Football Manager 2021 already upon us in beta form and en route in full, you might be waking up in cold sweats thinking about the inevitable.

We’ve all had to make quick changes in a bid to stop a striker bring down the apocalypse on our seasons. Who, then, might you be battening down the hatches and trying to stop in the 2021 edition of Football Manager?

Who should you be trying to do all that you can to stop them making your defence look like a bunch of undercooked amateurs?

(We’re going to leave out the obvious ones…you should already be adapting for Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku or Kylian Mbappe!)

Edin Dzeko


Edin Dzeko Football Manager 2021

Forever a goalscoring machine within the FM database, 2021 looks to be one of his last hurrahs as a genuinely elite forward. The Bosnian will start 2020 out at as a 34-year-old, so he won’t be going for long. If you end up managing in Italy, though, you would be silly to come up against AS Roma and not adapt for his arrival on the pitch.

Because there are few players out there with the sublime quality that Dzeko brings to the table. He’s an adept finisher with both feet, from all angles, and in the air. Watch out for him – age is just a number for a man with his instincts.

Iago Aspas


Iago Aspas Football Manager 2021

Another player who you might take your eye off of. Alright, he was a bit of a flop more or less anywhere outside of Vigo. And he might be 32. But in the world of FM, his consistency and his unerring accuracy in front of goal can be quite ridiculous at times.

If you are up against Celta de Vigo, where he will likely stay, expect him to be a thorn in your side. Don’t allow his age or lack of athleticism at 32 to put you off him or ignore him. This is a shark of a forward who needs to be watched and needs to be considered if you are a La Liga outfit yourself.

Andrea Belotti


Andrea Belotti Football Manager 2021

Many fans of Italian football and FM will already be aware of The Rooster himself. Yet Belotti is a forward who, after a couple of less prolific years, might have fallen off the radar a bit. At 26, he would be the perfect forward for building around if you intend to try and take on Juventus yourself. If you come up against Il Gallo, make sure you get your most physically robust and athletic defenders on him.

He can dominate a centre-back pairing on his own and frequently pops up between defender and full-back. Definitely, a player to keep an eye on, as his hawkish movement and sniffing of chances makes him a nightmare to come up against.

Dusan Tadic


Dusan Tadic Football Manager 2021

He might be 31, but if you are looking for an intelligent, creative striker who could play off the forward or on the left, you must look at Dusan Tadic. The Serbian has shown his quality for years in Holland and in England, but his rebirth at AFC Ajax has been remarkable.

If you need a figurehead forward to build around for a few years, Tadic is worth breaking the bank for: even in his advancing years.

Duvan Zapata


Duvan Zapata Football Manager 2021

The 29-year-old Colombian is finally beginning to reach his astounding peak, and the results are going to be very much worth seeing. Zapata is an exceptional player, a clinical machine of a forward with the precision to finally go with the rest of his all-around game.

If you need a forward to build the attack from and around, then Zapata has the physical means and the tactical smarts to take any team in Europe to the next level. Even the very elite teams could find that his unique blend of attributes could give them an extra edge, even as an alternative to their usual forward line. As a striker, though, you should absolutely make marking Zapata a priority if you find him up against you.

Fabio Silva


Fabio Silva Football Manager 2021

He’s only a young pup, but by the second or third season, he’s going to be contending for honours. His team, Wolverhampton Wanderers, are on the up as a force and could easily compete in the English Premier League within a few short years.

Fabio, though, promises to be one o the most intriguing young forwards in the game. An interesting blend of silk and steel, he can get around the forward line with ease and occupy defenders. Add in his natural technique and precise movement, and for a young lad, you would do well to occupy him accordingly.
