While Lukaku couldn’t break into the Chelsea set-up, he rose to prominence in England through loan spells at West Brom and Everton. The latter eventually signed him for €35.36m in 2014.

The striker’s most prolific campaign was in 2016/17, where he scored 25 goals in 37 games for Everton. It led Manchester United to sign him the following season for €84.70m.

After two seasons at Old Trafford, Lukaku now plays for Inter Milan in the Serie A.

3. Wayne Rooney – 114 goals in 248 games

The Premier League’s second-highest record scorer enjoyed his best season in 2011/12, where he scored 27 goals in 34 games. But it still wasn’t enough to overhaul Manchester City for the title.

Rooney’s goal numbers soon faded as he entered his thirties, leading him to rejoin boyhood club Everton in 2017. Although the reunion didn’t last long, with the striker heading to the MLS after one season.

Rooney now plays for Derby County in the Championship after signing a two-year deal in January 2020.
