The Indian Super League (ISL) has been graced with many reputed strikers over the years. From Bart Ogbeche to Ferran Corominas to the evergreen Sunil Chhetri, the ISL have seen its finest strikers since its inception.

Strikers are used to doing the hardest thing in football by putting the ball in the back of the net. The prowlers of the penalty area can score with clever flicks, smart tap-ins, brash backheels, or powerful volleys. While the ISL have shown many fantastic goals from its competent strikers,

There are a few strikers among all who are going to be the show-stealers for the ISL 2023–24 season. Let’s figure them out.

Jason Cummings (Mohun Bagan Super Giant)

Mohun Bagan Super Giant’s newly recruited forward Jason Cummings is one of the most high-profile strikers to join the ISL. Cummings joins MBSG after spending a goalscoring season with A-League's Central Coast Mariners. Cummings also represented the Australian national team in the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Cumming loves to make explosive mobility runs behind the defence. The 26-year-old Australian international can easily move between the lines and operate the channels to confuse his defender.

Cummings has an incredible eye for goals and lots of confidence in his ability. His calmness and composure make him a worthy penalty-taker. With his preferred left foot, Cummings finds the net with his precise finishes.

Fantasy potential: A striker with a high goal-scoring rate is an asset for any team. Cummings should be the first-choice striker in your team.

Dimitri Petratos (Mohun Bagan Super Giant)

Dimitri Petratos performs best when his team needs him the most. Since joining Mohun Bagan SG, Petratos has become the most important option for head coach Juan Ferrando. Petratos showcased an impressive performance with 12 goals and 7 assists in his debut ISL season.

The Australian deployed himself as the talisman for MBSG with his playmaking skills. He netted crucial goals in the ISL Cup final that the Mariners won on penalties and also scored the winner in the Durand Cup final

The man for the big occasion offers every possible skill to fit him in any position in the attacking third. His goal-scoring prowess, fierce strikes, impactful crosses, and quality runs through the wings add strategic variety and an adventurous spirit to the team.

Fantasy potential: Petratos will not only offer goals but also assists, which makes him the most valuable player in any squad. The Australian could be a worthy addition to your team.

Jonathan Moya (Hyderabad FC)

Hyderabad FC signed Jonathan Moya to fill the void left by Javier Siverio. The Costa Rican forward joined the Yellow and Blacks after completing his stint in South Korea. Moya has experience playing in the Costa Rican Primera Division, the Spanish Segunda Division, and also in the top-flight leagues in Ukraine.

Moya was also in the Costa Rican national team squad for the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers. His goal-scoring prowess and creativity in the attacking third will add more depth to the HFC squad.

Moya is renowned for his ability to find the back of the net consistently across the different leagues he has played in. With his effective 6’1’’ height, Moya has been impactful in aerial duels, which gives some extra advantage to his team. Besides, his well-timed runs behind the defence and capability to exploit spaces will create goalscoring opportunities for HFC.

Fantasy potential: Moya is masterful at finding the back of the net with his accurate heads or powerful strikes. His addition will secure goals for your teams.

Dimitrios Diamantakos (Kerala Blasters FC)

Dimitrios Diamantakos displayed his goalscoring ability by scoring 12 goals in the ISL 2022–23 season. The Greek striker ticks all the boxes for an ideal number 9 and is perfect to play in front of the creative players at Kerala Blasters FC.

Diamantakos also has a high work rate and always keeps his defenders busy. He has excellent off-the-ball movement that allows him to create some extra space for himself. Diamantakos’s agility, strength, confidence, and shooting accuracy make him a complete forward.

The Greek forward has been a total team player for Kerala Blasters FC. His experience, knowledge, and maturity bring more depth to the squad.

Fantasy potential: With a second season in ISL, Diamantakos could get even better and increase his goal tally this season.

Diego Mauricio (Odisha FC)

Diego Mauricio has been spending the best phase of his career with Odisha FC. Mauricio won the ISL 2022–23 Golden Boot award by edging out Petratos and Cleiton Silva. With 12 goals, the Brazilian delivered his best-ever ISL performance with the Kalinga Warriors.

Mauricio has the quality to exploit tight spaces and find the back of the net. The Brazilian striker’s physicality and his positioning are his biggest strengths. He is a nuisance to his opponent’s defenders and tries to break their defensive organisation.

Mauricio is the kind of striker that every coach would like to have on his team as he can also operate through the wings and create goalscoring opportunities for his teammates.

Fantasy potential: Mauricio is a proven goalscorer and with Sergio Lobera at the helm at Odisha FC, expect them to create a lot more chances and it will only play into the Brazilian's hands.

Wilmar Jordan Gil (Punjab FC)

Wilmar Jordan Gil was truly magnificent for the North East United FC in the ISL 2022–23. In his short stint with North East United FC, Gil scored eight goals in 11 matches in the league and showed his capabilities.

Gil has joined Punjab FC for the ISL 2023–24 season and will be the main man for his team again. The Colombian striker would like to continue his goal-scoring ways with his new team and establish himself among ISL's elite strikers.

Fantasy potential: Gil's scoring rate last season in the league and the Durand Cup should make him one of the hot picks to consider for ISL Fantasy managers.

 Jorge Pereyra Diaz (Mumbai City FC)

Jorge Pereyra Diaz should be renamed the ‘fox in the box’ for his commendable performance. The Mumbai City FC forward is an accurate and efficient finisher who finds the net with ease. The Argentine forward is an ideal goal-poacher who can punish the opponent if he gets the slightest chance.

The 32-year-old foreigner has performed at crucial times for his team. With age, his performance is getting better day after day.

Fantasy potential: Diaz’s goal-scoring manner may convince you to add him to your squad.
