Tevez Sassuolo

10) Carlos Tevez (Juventus): 14 in 22

The little Argentina international has truly flourished since deciding to swap big-spending Premier League outfit Man City for the Serie A champions in last year’s January transfer window, and the forward’s form in front of goal so far in this campaign for the Old Lady of Italian Football has been particularly impressive, with Tevez having managed to net 14 times so far in his 22 Serie A outings.

Adrian Ramos Arsenal

9)  Adrian Ramos (Hertha Berlin): 14 in 22

What a campaign the Colombia international is enjoying at present for his club in the Bundesliga, where the 28-year-old front man has managed to hit the target on 14 occasions in only 22 league outings for Hertha, which makes the South American the leading goal scorer in the entire German top flight, which not many would have been able to predict at the start of this campaign.

Sergio Aguero Manchester City

8) Sergio Aguero (Man City): 15 in 15

Just think how many the little Argentina international would have netted by now had he not been plagued by a combination of both knee and hamstring injuries so far for the north west outfit in this campaign? However, whenever Kun has been called upon by new head coach Manuel Pellegrini in the Premier League, the razor sharp attacker has responded, with 15 strikes in just 15 league games proof enough of that.

Antoine Griezmann Real Sociedad

7) Antoine Griezmann (Real Sociedad): 15 in 22

What an eye-catching season the French forward is enjoying so far for the Basque outfit, with the 22-year-old the fourth highest goal scorer in La Liga to date having netted 15 times for Sociedad, and as a result of those impressive attacking numbers, the wide man has been heavily linked of late with a number of big-name Premier League clubs, including Chelsea, this summer.

Alexis Sanchez FC Barcelona

6) Alexis Sanchez (FC Barcelona): 15 in 18

Without doubt this must be the Chile international’s most impressive season for the La Liga champions since he first arrived at Camp Nou from Serie A outfit Udinese with a huge reputation, and now having managed to score 15 times in just the 18 La Liga contests for the Catalans, it looks as though the highly rated forward is finally living up to that reputation.

Daniel Sturridge Liverpool


5) Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool): 18 in 17

The Reds’ front man just cannot stop scoring for Brendan Rodgers’s high flying side in the Premier League at the moment, with the England international’s brace against Swansea City at Anfield in the league on Sunday afternoon making it eight straight games in a row that the player has scored in the top flight in this campaign.

Diego Costa Atletico Madrid

4) Diego Costa (Atletico de Madrid): 21 in 24

One of the chief reasons as to why Diego Simeone’s side are currently surprising many in La Liga by fighting both champions FC Barcelona and giants Real Madrid all the way for this season’s title is the red hot form in front of goal of the Brazil-born attacker, who has netted 21 times so far to leave him as the second top scorer in Spain at present.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic PSG

3) Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Paris Saint-Germain): 22 in 25

This has been the Swede’s best ever season in front of goal in his entire illustrious career, and what is more, many of his 22 league strikes for the Ligue 1 champions have been outrageous.

Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid

2) Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid): 22 in 21

Well, it would not be a proper top 10 goalscoring list without the name of the world’s best player on it, with the Portuguese having started the campaign slowly, only to now head the standings in Spain.

Luis Suarez Liverpool

1) Luis Suarez (Liverpool): 23 in 22

Despite having not scored in his previous five matches for the Reds, the Uruguayan is still the top scorer in the Premier League with a remarkable 23 strikes in only 22 games, and all this despite the forward missing the first two months of the season through suspension.
