#8. Wilfried Bony
The Cote d’Ivoire striker was first introduced to English football by Welsh giants, Swansea City. During his first two years with the club, Bony showcased the sort of brute strength that had become a hallmark of a modern day lone striker. Things did not work out in his favor at Manchester City but regardless of the type of form he is in, Bony is a tough lad to steal the ball from when it’s under his feet.
