Edin Dzeko

Fair enough Dzeko isn't your usual lumbering target man, but he does provide a fairly large presence for his team mates to kick a ball towards.

The 6ft 4in Bosnian is incredibly effective in the air, but equally productive when the ball is on the ground. 

Dzeko combines size with skill in a way that few can master, which is why Manchester City were willing to shell out £27million for his services in 2011. 

A great all rounder, who can prove tricky in a number of ways for anyone attempting to mark him.
