Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Radamel Falcao and Robin Van Persie are the deadliest attackers in European club football at this moment, right? Not necessarily. Arguably, the true measure of a striker's touch in front of goal is how many goals he has scored for every shot taken, or in other words, his shot conversion rate. Taking those figures as our basis, we've produced a ranking of strikers from stats in Europe's strongest leagues, including the top divisions in England, Spain, Italy, Russia, France, Holland and Germany. To make it really tough, we even eliminated goals from penalty kicks. To make it fair, we've set a minimum of five goals scored, too, so that way someone who came on as a second half sub once this season and scored a goal can't top the table.
Click the arrows above as talkSPORT reveal who Europe's deadliest striker really is right now, and the answer is both surprising and thought-provoking.
