Many clubs have opted for an out with the old, in with the new approach to their strikers in this transfer window, but some have managed to keep their place. And now that a new season is nearing there are a few strikers with something to prove to the world…
Following the exit of Liverpool talisman Luis Suarez, England’s golden boy Daniel Sturridge will need to step up to the mark and deliver the goals this time around, needing to bag more than his 21 goal quota last campaign.
Also if Liverpool are to be anywhere close to the top of the League, and after a dismal World Cup with the national side, the former Chelsea man now has to prove his worth.
Chelsea forward Fernando Torres has been highly ridiculed during his time at Stamford Bridge, after three years of hardship at the club, but the 30-year-old will want to prove he is the best Spaniard around after the signing of ex-Atletico Madrid man Diego Costa this summer.
Torres needs to give the blue army a reason to finally cheer his name again and bringing back his Liverpool form could be the way to do it. Could this be his season?
Injury ridden striker Stevan Jovetic will hope to put all his problems from last season behind him, after only making 13 appearances at his time for the Citizens, as he vies for a place in Manchester City’s attack.
And after his huge £22 million move to the Etihad Stadium a year ago, he certainly needs to prove to the Man City coaches and fans that he is worth that price tag.
