The Norwegian is coming off a treble-winning campaign in which his 52 goals in 53 games helped the Citizens to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

He is yet to sign a new contract at City with his current deal expiring in 2027 and Haaland has been linked with a move to Real Madrid next summer, potentially linking up with Endrick and Kylian Mbappe.

Kane has been excellent for Bayern Munich during his first-ever Bundesliga season, scoring 31 goals in only 26 matches since his €95 million move from Tottenham last summer.

His record-breaking goalscoring exploits have also helped Bayern to the Champions League quarter-finals, where they will face Arsenal over two legs in April.

Although Osimhen has endured a difficult campaign for Napoli, he has still managed 11 Serie A goals in 17 matches.

The 25-year-old Nigerian has missed multiple games through injury and also when called up to the Super Eagles squad for their Africa Cup of Nations campaign.

It would appear Osimhen is set to depart Naples this summer amid strong interest from Arsenal as well as teams in the Saudi Pro League.

He is under contract at the Diego Maradona Stadium until 2026 with no breakthrough to be found in negotiations over a new deal.

Haaland, Kane and Osimhen the best says Ferguson

“I would say Haaland, Kane and Osimhen maybe. Top three, he doesn’t get talked about too much, but he’s definitely up there,” Ferguson told ESPN’s TikTok channel when asked for the top three strikers on the planet.

The 19-year-old has scored six times in 26 Premier League matches this season for the Seagulls, including a hat-trick against Newcastle back in September.

He has been linked with a move away from Brighton with Manchester United reported to be interested in his signature. Ferguson is under contract at the Amex until 2029 so it will take a mammoth bid to remove the Ireland international.
