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.

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!
