Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder arriving at Galatasaray in January took a bit of the limelight away from Turkey’s foremost goalscorer, but he has continued to find the net regularly.

Yilmaz is a powerful centre-forward in the traditional mould, though he is no target man, preferring to play on the shoulder of the last defender to exploit space in behind – he is a deadly finisher when he gets into position.

He moved to Galatasaray in the summer after an astonishing 35-goal season for Trabzonspor and he has already notched 31 times for the Istanbul side this term – including eight in the Champions League.
