    Ain't getting an RVP level striker anytime soon. Actually, think of any of the current strikers being his sort. Him and Zlatan were an anomaly imo.

    Excluding Messi and Ronaldo for obvious reasons, it was mostly RVP and Suarez for me during that time that had it all.

    With Ibra also magical, but in his own style and way.

    Messi and Ronaldo are just something else altogether. I was talking about strikers of the mortal kind. Suarez definitely up there as well as Aguero but RvP and Zlatan were sort of very very unique of their kind.

    They wanted £50m plus in January, I think. Apparently hasn't impressed since then, so it's probably £49m now.

    EDIT: It was February 2018, so a while ago.

    i think 40 and we would get him which is def cheaper than Zaha

    Would be great to have that sort of striker.

    Raul and Vinai would be sitting in their homes, having peanuts, reading this thread, sharing screenshots and joking "Look at these losers. They are arguing on whether to buy Zaha or Fraser while we have money for neither"

    They could still get us Brahimi and Malcom on loan.

    Really rated Fernando Torres when he first came to England, thought he was a pretty complete package for a striker, too. Maybe technically not on the level of Robin or Zlatan, but he did have some fine technique. Unfortunately he did in his knees after like 2 or 3 seasons iirc.

    I honestly think this could be the signing that gives us a different dimension. Someone who can break at pace and put in pin point crosses for Auba and co to tap in. We generally try to break open teams by passing the ball patiently and creating spaces with movement in the middle, but when opponents close up shop, we lack penetration. That's why we suffered when Bellerin was out, and that's why we need a player who's pacy, comfortable staying wide, and can fizz in those really dangerous balls.

    Torres was a bomb. Absolutely tore it up but he wasn't quite an all around player like them though.

    He wasn't as creative as them and like I said technically not on their level, but for a striker he was still pretty complete. Technical, pacey, quick and mobile, great movement, strong, clinical finish with both feet and head. Pretty similar to Luis Suarez honestly.

    Yeah, he was electric . Suarez was something else though. More complete, aggressive, hard working, more skillful and was very creative in scoring some stunning goals. Torres on the other hand was more straight forward. Once his knees went taking away his blistering speed, he became ineffective.

    Yeah but then again Suarez' knees never went away and he's had a very full career. Torres had his break out at Atletico and three seasons at Liverpool before he was basically done. Still survived at the top (Chelsea, second Atletico stint and Spain) for much longer than expected due to his allround quality despite having lost his pace, athleticism, confidence and goal getting instincts. And he was pretty hardworking and skillful, too, especially at scoring. Sure, he wasn't an aggressive terrier like Suarez and the Uruguayan has maybe a bit more silkier skills, but imo they are or were pretty close and similar overall. Torres just never could leave such a mark as the other one, despite quite an illustruous career.

    It was more he was forced upon Chelsea managers because of Abramabitch being stubborn having spent a fortune on him and nobody else could afford or want to take a chance on him given his condition. He only began to work hard and got stuck in to be somewhat useful. Can't knock his trophy haul and yeah you never know how far he could've gone without injuries.

    David Villa! He was superb as well. He doesn't get enough mention for some reason.

    Best modern day strikers for me are Aguero and Zlatan. These guys have been decimating opposition year in year out in top leagues for their entire career.

    I respect their longevity a lot when you compare them to other great strikers who were only at the top of their game for 5-7 years max. These two did it for 10+

    Di Natale was really special aswell.

    Damn, totally forgot him there.
    Cutting off his long blond hair back then was like cutting of his Dragonball-like super powers.

    Basically went from the skillset at the ball from Zaha to Fraser

    I assume you're talking about Fraser, if so I agree. I thought I'd stumbled across a "who's your favourite striker/player thread" :)
