As football fans, we cherish nothing more than a serial goalscorer hitting them every week for our beloved club.
That’s the hardest thing to do, find a reliable goalscorer.
Especially one who can always be trusted to post impressive numbers throughout the grueling season that is the English Premier League.
So when that special player arrives, as fans we always make sure to cherish him.
Over the years, we’ve seen many fine art scholars – Thierry Henry, Sergio Aguero and Alan Shearer are all prime examples.
But who is the top scorer of all existing Premier League clubs?
Well, thanks to the wizards of transfer marketwe can show you exactly that via the graph below.
For clarification, only Premier League goals are considered in this stat.

Goalscoring record in every current Premier League team (via Transfermarkt) in football
Wow, there are divine names in this list! And we mean literally, given that Robbie Fowler and Matt Le Tissier — who were both affectionately referred to as ‘God’ by their fans — make the grade.
Yes, Liverpool fans, Mohamed Salah is not here yet. His tally of 117 Premier League goals for the club leaves him 10 behind the legendary Scouser.
Meanwhile, Le Tissier is rather unsurprisingly far ahead for the Saints. A very respectable 102 goals from the midfield is almost double that of closest rival James Beattie.
The undisputed king of the Premier League, Thierry Henry, plays for the Gunners. The Frenchman enjoyed eight full seasons in England and scored 175 home goals in that time – it’s no surprise King Thierry has been voted the best player in league history on numerous occasions.
Shearer was the Hall of Fame inductee who will be announced alongside Henry when the awards are created and he is also on the list.
Shearer tops the Newcastle table with 146 goals, however, his tally of 112 at Blackburn would also have made him Rovers’ all-time top scorer had they retained their top-flight status.
Of course, Aguero obliterates all opposition when it comes to being Manchester City’s flag bearer.
The Argentine has scored 184 times for the Citizens, more than doubling second-best Raheem Sterling’s output of 88. City fans will be hoping new signing Erling Haaland could put that record under pressure in the years to come.
Lampard, Kane and Rooney make up the rest of the top six sides, none of which come as a big surprise to have dominated at their clubs for such long stretches.
While a slew of existing Premier League talent fill a large chunk of the remaining spots.
