We take a look at who Europe's top three strikers are and state the reasons behind their inclusion.

Robert Lewandowski - Borussia Dortmund

The Polish striker had another fantastic season and he excelled in the Champions League - scoring four goals against Real Madrid. 

His performances have been so good that he is continually being linked with a move to Manchester United and Bayern Munich. 

The amount of goals he scores, the type of goals and the quality of the goals puts him right up there with the best.

Robin van Persie - Manchester United

Van Persie finished last season as the Premier League's top scorer and scored some quite unforgettable goals along the way. 

He scored goals in important matches as well including the winner in the Manchester derby at the Etihad stadium. Had a fantastic season and could well be Europe's best striker.

Wayne Rooney - Manchester United

The England striker has everything. He can score goals from anywhere on the pitch.

He can also set up his teammates, play out of position and works hard all over the pitch. There are not many strikers that will do that and still score goals. 

An injury-plagued season stopped Rooney from showing his best form last season but he still managed over 15 goals and set up a lot more. 

We should see the best of Rooney this season and be I believe he will finish as the Premier League's top scorer.

You might think Lionel Messi should have been included in this list but I don't class him as a striker.
