HITC Sport writers have compiled a list of the top 50 players at Euro 2016, assessing players from across the 24 countries taking part at this summer's tournament.

Coming in at number 2 is Sweden's talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who continues to be one of the most ruthless strikers in Europe.

International record: 112 Caps, 62 Goals

2015/16: Despite being 34 years of age, Ibrahimovic enjoyed a sensational season with Paris Saint-Germain, inspiring them to both the Ligue 1 title - the fourth of the Swede's spell at Parc des Princes - and the League Cup. 

He scored 38 goals in just 31 league games, and also contributed 13 assists as Laurent Blanc's side clinched the title by a mammoth 31 points.

What can we expect?

With Ibrahimovic confirming that his time in Paris is at an end (via BBC Sport), he will be hoping to prove that all of Europe's biggest clubs should be bending over backwards to try and sign him after the tournament, despite his age.

Having scored more goals than the rest of Erik Hamren's squad combined, he will undoubtedly adopt a similar role to the one that he has enjoyed at PSG. Ahead of taking on a tough group, he will be the man that the rest of the side will look to to make the kind of things happen that will ensure their safe passage to the knockout stages of the competition. 

With Sweden not qualifying for the last World Cup, and with the forward perhaps heading into his final major tournament - though it would not surprise anyone if he was still somewhere near the top of his game as Russia 2018 rolled around - he will be desperate to make the impression that he clearly has the ability to make.

Which Premier League clubs would he suit?

With his reputation meaning that only the teams with the healthiest wage budgets are likely to be able to afford him, there will only be a small handful of Premier League teams that will be watching him with the intention of making a move. 

Manchester United's poor season in front of goal arguably makes them the most likely English side to make a move, while West Ham have been linked with an audacious swoop recently (via The Sun) and calls for Arsenal to invest in a world-class striker would make Ibrahimovic an obvious choice if Arsene Wenger was willing to abandon his principles of generally targeting younger players.
