The Spaniard has looked impressive with his all-round game. Though the 31-year-old’s performances have been overshadowed by some big names in the La Liga, Deportivo Alaves manager Asier Garitano had once stated that the biggest strengths of Lucas Perez is the kind of intensity he brings on the field. Perez has co-ordinated well with Joselu in the forward line.

He has had healthy coordination with midfielder Aleix Vidal. He has scored 11 goals in 26 games with 5 assists to his name. The forward has been quite good when it comes to his clever passes and his ability to make constant inroads in the opposition’s defence with his quickness. The striker has looked impressive during set pieces and has always looked to play his natural game which is to attack.

5. Gerard Moreno

Gerard Moreno has been the pillar of Villareal’s forward line since the last few seasons. He has this unique ability to link up play between the midfielders and forwards with his clever moves. The Spaniard has the tendency to drop deep and can also be used as a striker as well as an attacking midfielder. The 28-year-old has shown his effectiveness during set-pieces.
