Ten footballers who tore the net with goals this season

This European football season has been loaded with some spectacular goals. Some footballers, mostly strikers, have painted the net red with goals this term. This piece highlights the goalscoring prowess of some ten astonishing strikers in the top European Leagues this season.

Premier League

A Belgian is on course to win the golden shoe in the Premier League, that’s if he can keep his goalscoring streak on. With just six games left to play in the Premier League, we’ve seen some brilliant goals from these two strikers this season.

Romelu Lukaku

The big Belgian has been Everton’s man for the goals since the 2016-17 season began. Romelu Lukaku has scored twenty-four Premier League goals this season and has also provided six assists. Lukaku has scored all sorts of beautiful goals for Everton this season and has helped the Toffees rise to sixth in the Premier League standings.

With Lukaku’s goals this season, Everton are fighting for continental qualification next season; if he can continue scoring, Everton will surely make it to Europe next term. The former Anderlecht striker averages a goal every 121 minutes.

Harry Kane

If Tottenham Hotspur manages to overturn Chelsea's seven-point lead at the top of the league and win the Premier League, they’d have one man to thank. He’s none other than Harry Kane. The English striker has scored goals for fun this season. Despite missing a plethora of games due to injury, he’s banged in twenty goals and provided five assists.

Spurs boast one of the best attacks in Europe this season and Harry Kane is the point man in that attack.

Bundesliga

There’s a power-tussle raging on in the Bundesliga and it’s for nothing but the golden boot award. Two players are neck to neck with just a goal difference between them; a third, Anthony Modeste, follows closely behind, with twenty-three goals, five goals behind the leading marksman.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The Gabonese striker has been the treat for Dortmund this season, and the reason is not far-fetched; he’s scored some stunning goals for the Yellow Submarine. With twenty-seven goals in the Bundesliga, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has absolutely delivered the goods for Dortmund as they continue their chase for a Champions League spot.

Aubameyang must continue scoring if he hopes to win the golden shoe as the other guy is not too far behind.

Robert Lewandowski

Bayern Munich is in line for another Bundesliga title, and Robert Lewandowski has contributed immensely to their title push. He’s scored twenty-six times in the Bundesliga and averages a goal every ninety-three minutes.

Lewandowski has proven himself a trusted goal-machine with his wonderful goals for Carlo Ancelotti’s Bayern Munich this season.

Serie A

Two strikers have proved their mettle in the Italian top division this term. They’ve absolutely ripped the net apart with some superb goals. The big question is, which of the duo will win the top goalscorer award. Both players are currently tied for the same number of goals. Mauro Icardi chases them closely, one goal behind on twenty-four.

Andrea Belotti

Many big Prem clubs are chasing his signature and Torino was rumoured to have rejected a £50 million bid from Chelsea for him in January. Andrea Belotti has been that spectacular. He’s hit the net twenty-five times this season for lowly Torino.

Although he honestly thinks he’s not worth his £84 million valuations; one won’t be too surprised to if one of the Premier League big spenders break the bank for him.

Edin Džeko

After a poor season with Manchester City, Eden Džeko arrived Roma hoping to rekindle the dying flame of his illustrious career – he did! The 31-year-old has this season, proven that age is nothing but a number.

Džeko has bagged twenty-five Serie A goals this term. He scores a goal every 108 minutes. Can Edin Džeko win the Serie A golden shoe?

La Liga

The usual big names have been lighting up the stage in the La Liga. Once again it’s been the Barcelona superstars contributing the most individual goals, with Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo coming a distant third with nineteen goals.

Lionel Messi

Words cannot explain the sort of goals the Argentine football genius scores. His thirty-one La Liga goals remain an unprecedented figure. Lionel Messi has propelled Barcelona to the top of the La Liga ahead of Real Madrid.

Messi needs no introduction; he’s been absolutely phenomenal for the La Liga league-leaders this season.

Luis Suarez

The Uruguayan has scored some of the best La Liga goals this season. Luis Suarez has contributed twenty-four goals this season and can still win the golden shoe ahead of teammate, Lionel Messi, who has scored seven goals more.

Ligue 1

In the Ligue 1, an Uruguayan has been on fire in front of goal. He’s now scored more goals than he’s ever done in a single season. The top three goalscorers in the Ligue 1, mirrors the top three in the La Liga, with thirty-one, twenty-four and nineteen goals respectively for the top three.

Edison Cavani

Aged 30, Edison Cavani is having his best season ever as a top striker. The former Napoli top marksman has scored forty-four goals this season – thirty-one in the Ligue 1 alone.

Edison Cavani has really annihilated the goal post this term. He’s made goalscoring look so easy.

Alexander Lacazette

The Frenchman has breached the 20-goal mark in the Ligue 1 for the third consecutive season. But for the brilliance of Edison Cavani, Alexander Lacazette would easily coup the golden shoe award. He’s seven goals behind his PSG counterpart, with twenty-four goals this campaign.
