Pato always does well for me, Babacar in about the 3rd or 4th season is a beast.. Both very expensive though of course, if you want a truly world class striker you have to spend money though.

Kalinic, Steven Fletcher or Marcus Berg are pretty cheap - not Berbatov or Rooney quality but still very decent.

I'm not sure if he really does get upset enough if you take away his captainship that this changes, but Tevez has always been ridiculously consistent for me. He can be counted on to get around a goal a match with me, maybe slightly below that. I always have him as a poacher next to a target man (Attack).

Otherwise, Babacar, Sanogo, and Dzeko will almost always give good results if you just set them as target men.

Given what who you have said you have, I would STRONGLY advise the following:

Get either Babacar, Sanogo, Lukaku, or Dzeko (though I prefer the first two). Set whichever one you get as an attacking target man. Put Tevez next to him as a poacher. Put Neymar in the left attacking midfielder position as a winger (attack) and put Balotelli in the right attacking midfielder position as a winger (attack).

I have done that exact thing and it has been devastatingly good. Tevez scores ridiculous numbers of goals.

If you really don't want Tevez though, you could always get Aguero or better yet, break the bank for Rooney and use them in the same role.

Neymar and Balotteli will are best be played as inside forwards/winger. I got tevez from city after a season n hes averaging 2 goals per games and 4 straight hat-tricks. hes a goal machine. U can go for Aguero or Higuan if u've got the money.

Like others have said, Oscar Cardozo is the one.
Play him up top on his own as an attacking target man with two decent inside forwards either side of him.

If you don't mind spending money, I find Eto'o is amazing! Absolute goal machine.

On the cheap side, Jan Chramosta. (Found him on here in Raikan's thread). He is just pure awesomeness. Will bang in the goals and most likely have you choosing him over megabucks superstars! Think you need the Czech league loaded though.

Im supprised no-ones mentioned Hulk from Porto.

In the second season he will cost you between 10-15mill. He has high adapability and fits into your team quickly. He's young too so you'll get some good buvk for your Money!

He plays along side Defoe (poacher) as an Advanced Forward - im in March and hes bagged about 25 + quite a few assists.

I made the mistake of signing Neymar in the first season .... worst signing ive ever made on FM.

Tevez and Dzeko can make an immediate impact (Tevez has scored a ridiculous amount of goals for me). A few seasons in, Babacar becomes outstanding, and I've seen Sanogo in two saves - one where he turned out decent, the other where he became the best striker in the game by a mile (couldn't sign him in this one though).

I think Cardozo and Eto'o are the best in Season 1...

Jozy Altidore as a lone striker is immense. Scored 40 goals in all competitions on my Celtic season.
