It's looking likely that one of Europe's most prolific strikers will be coming to the Premier League, but out of Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani, who will suit the English game?

With the exceptional goalscoring form that has been shown from Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani in recent seasons, it's no surprise that they are being linked with the top clubs in England such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.

With a massive goal scoring record of over 100 goals between in the last two seasons they are no doubt two of the best Strikers on the planet.

No matter which team buys them it's likely they will have to pay around the same commanding fee of £50m each which makes it more difficult to choose which one would be the better to sign since there is no obvious benefit financially from picking one over the other.

Falcao is a player who although isn't the tallest can beat almost any player in the air with the massive leap of the ground he is capable of. This would prove to be beneficial in games against teams such as Stoke City whose playing style is used in order to benefit tall players and thus have a tall team.

He single handedly tore Chelsea apart in the UEFA European Super Cup Final 2012 with a hat trick and has demonstrated that he can put in a performance on the biggest stage with a brilliant goal at the Nou Camp against Barcelona in a 4-1 defeat during December. Despite a minor blip in February and March where he went three games without scoring he still has a fantastic goalscoring record this season with 30 goals in 34 games and managed to score five in a single game against Deportivo La Coruña to end his mini goal drought.

Cavani has demonstrated time and time again that he means business. Excellent performances in last seasons Champions League, scoring goals against both Manchester City and Chelsea, gained him massive recognition across Europe.

He is much taller than Falcao and also has a very good work rate both going forward and defending. This season he has been superb netting hat tricks against both Lazio and Roma. He is also the current top goalscorer in Serie A and the second top goalscorer Europa League despite Napoli being dumped out in the first knockout round with seven goals in just 462 minutes of football.

No matter who it is that United, Chelsea or City buy they are guaranteed a player who is going to go out and cause problems for any defence in the Premier League but the question is should they risk paying the massive fee when they can try and get another striker cheaper?
