Position Power Ranks: Top 10 forwards
Over the last few weeks our FC Insider panel has ranked the world's top 10 goalkeepers, top 10 defenders and top 10 midfielders. As the final installment in our Position Power Rankings, we turn our focus to forwards.
Our voting panel includes FC Insiders Alejandro Moreno, Tor-Kristian Karlsen and Adrian Melville. Each panelist was asked to select their top 10 based on overall skills along with form from the 2014-15 club season, with emphasis on the second half. The ranks below are aggregated from their individual rankings. Note that some players qualify for multiple positions. In such cases, as with Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, the panel classified them based on best role and traditional/most frequent position (in Sanchez's case, it opted for forward versus attacking midfielder).
Here's our panel's forward ranks followed by player-by-player analysis. Be sure to let us know your thoughts by getting involved in the discussion via Twitter at #FCPositionRanks....
