Last season, Lionel Messi scored 37 goals to lift 2016/17 European Golden Boot award. The Argentine has now won the coveted award four times same as his bitter rival Cristiano Ronaldo. The Premier League has not seen a lot of success in this category in recent years. However, the English League has produced five winners since the award was first introduced in 1967–68 season. The last person to win it from Premier League was Luis Suarez in 2013/14 season. The question is can Mohamed Salah do it with one game remaining to play?
5. Harry Kane- 28 Goals
Tottenham Hotspurs forward Harry Kane netted on Wednesday night to secure Champions League football for his club for the third season in a row. Newcastle United made it a tough night for the Wembley crowd but Mauricio Pochetino side held on to their narrow lead. The strike means Kane is now only three goals (28 goals) behind top scorer in Premier league Mohamed Salah (31 goals). If he nets four in the final game this weekend and the Egyptian fails to score, the Golden Boot will be his for the third year in a row. Other stars with 28 goals include Mauro Icardi and Edinson Cavani from Inter Milan and PSG respectively.
4. Robert Lewandowski- 29 Goals
The only reason why Robert Lewandowski is behind Ciro Immobile on the list is because the Polish striker takes penalties. This means his goals are a mix of everything as compared to the Italian. The departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has eased pressure on the Bayern Munich forward because there is no serious challenger now. Bundesliga Golden Boot belongs to him now with 29 goals in the bag.
3. Ciro Immobile- 29 Goals
Lazio striker Ciro Immobile goalscoring record this season is very impressive. The Italian forward is finally settled after poor spells with several clubs including Borussia Dortmund. This season so far, he has netted 29 goals in Serie A alone. He is working hard to deliver his team in UEFA Champions League places. They currently occupy the fourth place on the table with 71 points.
