In today’s hyper-inflated market, bargains have become something of a rare commodity. With price tags of $20m seemingly being thrown out as if it was chump change.

The days where you could get good value for $5m look seemingly gone.

This can be attributed to teams around the globe taking full advantage when a big European club comes knocking at the door. They are fully aware of the deep pockets these teams possess, therefore, they’ll certainly want to get the best value for their player.

Forwards, especially, will never come at a cheap price. Finding a player that can score you a goal week in week out is certainly never an easy task. A striker that can score against quality opposition, very few and rare. However, it’d be foolish to claim there are not some well-hidden gems out there, for the right price.

In this article we list the 5 relatively cheap forwards club’s around Europe should be looking to purchase!
