With the domestic campaigns in the top 5 leagues of Europe all set to conclude soon, there have been a few strikers who have stood out in their respective leagues and here, we take a look at the top five goalscorers in Europe at present.
1. Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) - 39 goals
Robert Lewandowski has without doubt been the best striker in the world for almost three years now and he has continued that form this season too as seen by the staggering 39 goals he has scored in just 27 goals in the league.
The Polish hitman's performance have ensured that Bayern Munich won their ninth consecutive league title and he is one behind the record for most goals scored in the Bundesliga - which is held by another Bayern legend in Gerd Muller.
2. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) - 28 goals
There were fears at the start of the season that Lionel Messi has lost his mojo, but he has made a mockery of those claims by being his usual brilliant self in front of goal this season. The Barcelona icon has netted 28 goals so far is leading the Golden Boot race in LaLiga.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) - 27 goals
Cristiano Ronaldo has so far scored 27 goals for Juventus in the Serie A, but that has not been enough as the Bianconeri have relinquished their title to Inter Milan. The 36-year-old has been brilliant in front of goal, but might look to cut his losses and make a move away in the summer.
4. Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund) - 25 goals
Erling Haaland has emerged as the best young striker in the world, with the 20-year-old taking the world by storm courtesy of his goalscoring form. The Borussia Dortmund striker has netted 25 goals so far, though there are fears that he may leave the club if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season.
5. Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) - 25 goals
Kylian Mbappe has been tipped by many to be a future Ballon d'Or award winner, with the Frenchman already showing his worth at the grandest stage by becoming only the second teenager to score in a World Cup final.
That he is only 22-years-old is scary, considering that he is yet to reach his peak and will only get better in the future.
