Hi guys wondering if anyone had any strikers that are worth looking into.

I'm Leicester City and after having a brilliant first season and a half (already establishing myself in the premiership) my progress stagnated over the second half of the second season.

I play a relatively defensive 4-1-3-2 which includes a lot of short passing.

I currently have Ched Evans, Hernan Crespo, James Beattie, Alberto Bueno, Matty Fryatt and Martyn Waghorn. The only striker I get anything out of is Evans and he is very hot and cold (will score a couple every 6 or 7 games then score nothing for ages). I have loads of money (£10-15m region) to spend but already relatively close to my wage limit.

Anybody have any ideas of a striker who could do a job for me and what role is best for them to play; I aim to finish mid table?

Cheers.

Christian Benitez from Santos Laguna
View attachment 122544
Is a very good adv forward and fairly cheap a bit steep on wages but worth it.If it wasnt for a complete bad run this season hed have more goals I lost like 5 games.Hes still top scorer in the league.
Alsoo his name is Christian Benitez not Chucho I nicknamed him in mine so thats why its says Chucho

Within your budget, try Robert Acquafresca from Cagliari (EU national, so no work permit issues), he's a very decent forward, no outstanding attributes, but no weaknesses whatsoever and extremely consistent.

Also, consider Mattia Destro from Inter, price is somewhere between 5 and 7 Million USD in third season, quality finisher with good off the ball movement and relatively high flair, though not as consistent as Acquafresca.

United bought him seacond seeason in my west brom game and he scored a hatrick against me.So yeah he is prob worth a look.
