Anyone have any suggestions for a great striker prospect, money is no worry.
my favourite striker is iker muniain.

but soon you will get people posting carlos fierro and seydou doumbia. i dont rate carlos fierro
Isnt Munian a winger?
nah . he can play as a striker . so far hes score 32 goals in 68 appearances
Technically, Munian is a SS. False 9 if you will... Like what Fabregas is playing for Spain recently.

I like Jelle Vossen, but he is already 23, so he's not really a prospect. If you improve his first touch and/or speed he becomes flat-out awesome though. The guy is Van Nistelrooy 10 years ago...

There's also Carlos Fierro. He plays in Chivas if I'm not mistaken (somewhere in Mexico). He's your average poacher.

Then, there is obviously Neymar, who plays a similar position to Munian. Hey, you said money was no object.

Leandro Damião plays for Internacional in Brazil. Brilliant player.

Then you have the two Italians: Mario Destro (Internazionale) and Alberto Paloschi (Chievo/Milan). Decent players, but already 21, 22.

And then you have Ante Vukušić in Hajduk Split (Croatia) who is an excellent player despite his numbers. You know... when you find a player who doesn't actually have that decent skills, but somehow, he's quite brilliant. That's this guy...

Best of luck

For a striker that really scores, I would prefer Giuseppe Rossi. He has a rating of 87 and he is 26yrs old. Recently, ive tried scouting a few players and I found this brazilian guy. He has a rating of 75 and is 21 years old. I used him against Bayern Munich and he netted in 5goals on his first 2 games for me.

Well, Muniain is an "Inside forward" so to say. Which means you put him right behind the centre forwards... that is to say in these positions:

-_-_-_-_-_-
-X-X-X-X-X-

So, if the _ are places you can't place him, then the X is places you can. I don't have too much experience with Muniain, but I think he can play directly behind a forward.

For example, let's take a look at some random club, with Muniain.

--------------------F. Llorente--C. Wickham---------------------
---------------------------I. Muniain---------------------------
--------------A. Herrera----------------M. Badelj--------------
---------------------------G. Gattuso---------------------------

Now, in this situation, we can play the two "forwards" as complete forwards, poachers, or target men, because Muniain is using the midfield of Herrera and Badelj and their passes to him to transfer the midfield to the attack. He can also take the opportunity to attack himself.

While I'd have him as an inside forward, I wouldn't have him as "default". In the advanced instructions, I'd have him play through passes often.

Understand? Or did I overcomplicate it? I do that often, so let me know...
R.Funes Mori got him for my Standard Leige Team for around 3.5m,great as a lone forward as a Targetman.He Scored 46 goals in 50 games in his second season,but that is in the Belgian League :)

No, he is excellent. In 2011, in the World Cup U20, he scored 14 goals, in, like, 6 matches... in my FM game
