Clubs looking for a brand new striker are spoilt for choice this summer, with a number of hitmen available during the transfer window.

Getting a top-class striker for a relative bargain is tough work, but this list of want-aways are unlikely to cost as much as many media outlets claim they will.

Some have little time left on their contracts and most clubs will sell rather than lose them for nothing next summer.

If the player has expressed a desire to leave, clubs may also choose to sell to avoid having an unhappy squad member around.

GMF picked seven likely candidates for a move - here they are:
