With the majority of Premier League clubs reporting back for pre-season training this week, managers up and down the country are already planning ahead for the new 2013/14 campaign.

Whether it's fine-tuning the fitness and skill-set of existing players, or scouring the transfer market for potential new additions to their squad, high on the agenda of all savvy bosses, will be formulating a potent strike force upon which all successful seasons are built.

After the likes of Radamel Falcao, David Villa and Neymar all snubbed opportunities to move to the Premier League, the focus is now primarily on players already plying their respective trades in England.

Christian Benteke enjoyed a sensational breakthrough campaign in the top-flight last season, and after handing in a transfer request is attracting interest from a host of the country's leading clubs.

Click through the tabs - above or below - to check out the top 10 most lethal finishers based on their goals per games ratio in 2012/13!
