Top 10: Most expensive striker transfers in history (1)

Published 2 Comments

If Atletico Madrid are able to receive their supposed asking price for Diego Costa this month then the soon-to-be Spain international will become one of the most expensive strikers in the history of the game.

Costa has been in irresistible form so far this season with his 19 goals in 17 matches propelling him to the summit of the Primera Division scoring charts. This purple patch has seen the player linked with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea.

£32 million would reportedly be enough to prise Costa away from Madrid and, were Arsenal or Chelsea to pay such a fee, he would rank among a select few players to have commanded a figure that high.

Here are the top 10 most expensive striker transfers of all time...

10. Andy Carroll - £35 million
9. Sergio Aguero - £38 million
= 7. Hernan Crespo - £38.5 million
= 7. Hulk - £38.5 million
6. Neymar - £48.6 million
