Barcelona has produced some of the best strikers in the world. On that note, let’s take a look at the five best strikers who have ever represented the Blaugrana.

Romario

Romario had a stellar career for both club and country, and was regarded as one of the best players of his generation.

The Brazilian striker made his name in the Eredivisie with PSV Eindhoven, where he scored 128 goals in 148 appearances across all competitions. In 1993, the Brazilian international was signed by Barcelona and became a member of Johan Cruyff’s legendary team.

Romario made 65 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions, scoring 39 goals. He won La Liga once before leaving the club abruptly in 1995.

Samuel Eto’o

Samuel Eto’o began his professional career with Barcelona’s arch-rivals Real Madrid, but it was his performances on the island of Mallorca that caught Barcelona’s attention. The Cameroon international joined Barcelona for £24.3 million in 2004 and the rest, as they say, is history.

Eto’o had a productive spell with Barcelona as a gifted, technically sound, and intelligent striker. Over the course of five seasons with the club, he made 199 appearances in all competitions, scoring 130 goals.

With Barcelona, Eto’o won the La Liga three times and the Champions League twice, including the continental treble in 2009.

Cesar Rodriguez

Cesar Rodriguez, Barcelona’s second-highest goalscorer behind Lionel Messi, spent the majority of his playing career with the Blaugrana.

Spain’s international made 351 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions, scoring 232 goals. With the club, he won five La Liga titles and the Pichichi Trophy for scoring 28 league goals in only 24 games during the 1948-49 season.

His performances for Liverpool piqued Barcelona’s interest, and he was signed for £73.5 million in 2014. The striker formed a fearsome triumvirate with Lionel Messi and Neymar, proving to be a wise acquisition by the club.

Suarez scored 198 goals in 283 appearances for Barcelona across all competitions. With the club, he won four La Liga titles and a Champions League title.
