We are living in the age of captivating attacking football, with speedy wingers occupying the centre-stage. But, does that mean the time of strikers is up in the game? Absolutely not. With almost a quarter of the season already behind us, down are the best number 9s in Europe today.

5. Wissam Ben Yedder

Lately, Sevilla has been on 4th position, above Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. The reason for that? their attackers. They boast the second-best attacking stats in La Liga this season.

And one of the main contributor up front has been their No.9 Wissam Ben Yedder. The Frenchman has scored 5 goals and assisted 2 more, in only 5 starts for the Sevillistas in La Liga.

4. Luis Suarez

This season, Suarez has helped Barcelona to stay at the top of the table in La Liga with his 7 goals and 4 assists. But the Uruguayan is yet to hit top gear because we know he is much more capable than scoring 7 goals in 10 games in LaLiga.

The unfortunate injury to Messi provides him with the opportunity to establish himself as the top No.9 in Spain, if not Europe, in the coming weeks.

3. Sebastian Haller

If you follow Bundesliga, then the name Sebastian Haller must ring a bell. Haller won the 2017 Bundesliga Goal of the Year award for his outrageous overhead kick against Stuttgart.

For those of you who are unaware of the development of this really lethal finisher in the Bundesliga, the 24-year-old Frenchman can be described as the perfect modern No.9 who’s got the physique, speed, finishing and even acrobatic skills to terrorize the opposition defenses.
