Premier League All-Time Top Scorers – Top 5 Profiles
Blackburn Rovers raised plenty of eyebrows when they paid more than £3 million to take Alan Shearer from Southampton to Ewood Park.
Their investment paid off in style as Shearer’s 34-goal tally helped Rovers pip Manchester United to the title in 1994/95.
The former England captain joined Newcastle United in 1996 but was unable to add another trophy to his CV despite continuing to rattle home the goals.
After progressing through the youth system at Everton, Rooney quickly made his mark in the Premier League after making his professional debut in 2002.
He spent two productive years with the Toffees before Manchester United shelled out more than £25 million to sign him in 2004.
He subsequently won five Premier League titles with United and is the only player to have scored more than 250 goals for the club.
Kane has set his sights on overhauling Shearer’s record over the next few years and he could achieve the feat if he steers clear of injuries.
The Tottenham Hotspur star’s form dipped after he failed to secure a move to Manchester City in 2021, but he has since returned to his best under manager Antonio Conte.
With his mind now fully focused on Spurs, the striker has every chance of becoming the Premier League’s all-time leading goalscorer.
Cole initially came to the fore at Bristol City, where his prowess in front of goal caught the eye of Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan.
He established himself as a top-class striker with the Magpies, before being controversially sold to Man Utd in 1995.
Cole is famed for his prolific partnership with Dwight York which saw them bag a combined 53 goals during United’s treble-winning season in 1998/99.
Aguero can rightly lay claim to being the greatest foreign striker to play in the Premier League after netting 184 goals in 275 appearances for Manchester City.
The Argentinian was part of a golden era at City, ending his time there with four Premier League titles and several other trophies to his name.
Aguero joined Barcelona in 2021 but was forced to retire from football due to a heart problem later the same year.
