The Premier League has always been renowned for top quality players – in particular strikers. Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy are in scintillating form and are in a three-way tussle to be crowned Golden Boot winners come May 15.
Europe is full of the hottest talent out there and the temptation of astronomical wages from the Premier League may be too tantalising to decline this summer. But who could be packing their bags for England during the transfer window?
The Borussia Dortmund star has bagged 37 goals in all competitions this season – 23 in the Bundesliga – making him one of the most sought after forwards in world football. Aubameyang represented France at under-21 level before opting to play for Gabon, for whom he has scored 20 times.

The attacker has been linked with a move to Liverpool and a reunion with former Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp, while incoming Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is also said to be an admirer.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to be on the move this summer, Paris Saint-Germain will be looking to keep hold of Cavani at all costs. But the temptation of Premier League football and an even more lucrative salary could be enough to turn the Uruguayan’s head.
The former Napoli man has often been deployed on the flank by Laurent Blanc and has stated his desire to be played more centrally. Chelsea and Manchester United have long been interested in the 29-year-old who has 20 goals in all competitions this season. However, it may be hard to attract Cavani without Champions League football.
The Argentina ace has taken Serie A by storm this season with an incredible 30 league goals, which has helped Napoli mount a serious title bid. At 28-years-old, Higuain is at the peak of his career and would be an incredible asset to any Premier League club.
Arsenal were linked with the former Real Madrid striker before he moved to Italy in 2014 and would surely jump at the chance to add him to the ranks, unless Tottenham steal a march on their north London rivals.
Bayern Munich’s main man nearly joined Blackburn Rovers from Lech Poznan in 2010 for a meagre £4.2 million when Sam Allardyce was at Ewood Park. Since then, the Poland striker has plundered an eye-watering 118 Bundesliga goals and won three titles in Germany.
Lewandowski is only 27-years-old and could be tempted to swap Munich for Manchester and link up with Guardiola once more. His five-goal haul in nine minutes against Wolfsburg saw him awarded four certificates by Guinness World Records (Fastest Bundesliga hat-trick, Fastest four goals in a Bundesliga match, Fastest five goals in a Bundesliga match and Most goals scored by a substitute in a Bundesliga match).
One-third of Barcelona’s holy trinity could be Premier League-bound this summer. It is believed Manchester City were close to agreeing a deal for Neymar before he opted to sign for the Catalan’s in 2013.
The 24-year old has over 250 career goals to his name already and has been a long-term target for Manchester United, but will surely only leave the Nou Camp for another team in the Champions League.
Could Guardiola tempt the Brazilian superstar into a move to the Etihad? City can certainly splash the cash and meet whatever wage demands Neymar wants.
