Five Strikers Who Are Too Good For Their Current Clubs

These players have the potential to play for the top teams in Europe but they have somehow found themselves playing in teams where their full talents might not be utilized completely.

We take a look at 5 strikers who are too good for their current clubs:

5. Carlos Tevez (Shanghai Shenhua)

After moves to west ham, Man Utd, Man City, Juventus, Boca; he was again on the move and this time to China to play for Shanghai Shenhua. 

This move might be the least surprising one of the lot as he reportedly became the world’s highest paid player!

Although Tevez is now 33-years-old, he still has it in him to play for a top club in Europe but as we all know; it is not easy to turn down an offer from China.

4. Ciro Immobile (Lazio)

Ciro Immobile started his senior career with Juventus but he couldn’t cut it with the Italian giants and hence; moved from club to club before eventually finding his feet at Torino.

Since moving to Lazio, Immobile has found the form that won him the Golden Boot a few years ago. 

The Italian certainly has the attributes to play for a top club but one failed move; and the precious time he lost during that period seems to have made him quite apprehensive.

3. Javier Hernandez (West Ham United)

Hernandez after being sold by Manchester United despite having one of the best minutes per goal ratio in Premier League history.

He moved to different top Europeans team but this move was surprising to many and West Ham’s poor start to the season has not helped the case. 

Nevertheless, he has scored twice for the Hammers already.

2. Anthony Modeste (Tianjin Quanjian F.C)

Anthony Modeste, the French striker whose Bundesliga goal tally last season was bettered by only Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Modeste is a late bloomer but he showed in the last two seasons that he has the ability to be a top striker. Aged 29, he could have opted to play in Europe longer but with almost no chance of making the national team; it is understandable that he opted to go to China a to make a good living while he is still in demand.

1. Andrea Belotti (Torino)

The Italian’s terrific season also earned him a spot in the national team where he has gone on to score four times in 11 games after making his debut in August 2016. 

He also appeared on the radar of several top European clubs including Chelsea and Milan, but he opted to stay at Torino despite all the speculations regarding his future.

The 23-year-old striker has scored three goals this season and his staying with Torino will certainly help them realize their ambitions for the season.
