4. Harry Kane
Harry Kane is fast-becoming one of the best strikers in the Premier League. Kane, who now has 84 Premier League goals to his name is still a long way behind Alan Shearer’s record of 260 Premier League goals but on this form some football pundits are suggesting that he can surpass it before the end of his career.
No question, Harry Kane is most definitely up there among the world's elite footballers at the minute.

RIP Hugh Hefner, there will never be another like you. Mainly because being you is massively offensive in 2017, but still.
