Winner of the 2020 Golden Boy Award, Erling 'goal' Haaland is already widely considered to be one of the best strikers in the world at the age of just 20.

Since moving to Borussia Dortmund in January 2020, Haaland has scored a staggering 38 goals in only 40 appearances across competitions.

In the ongoing season, Haaland has scored 22 goals in 22 as many matches in all competitions; 14 of them have come in 15 Bundesliga games, along with four assists.

Inter Milan's record signing Romelu Lukaku has been among the goals ever since his arrival at the club last season.

The 27-year-old could well be on course to register his best single-season goal tally this campaign; he has already scored 20 goals in 27 matches across competitions for Inter Milan.

In the league, Lukaku has made 20 appearances and registered 14 goals and three assists as Inter continue to breathe down the necks of league-leaders AC Milan.

#6 Luis Suarez (Atletico Madrid) - 16 goals in 17 matches

Within less than five months of his move to Atletico Madrid, Luis Suarez has ostensibly made Barcelona rue their decision of letting him go.

The 34-year-old has scored 16 goals in 17 La Liga matches this season, equalling his goal tally in the league last season, which he conjured from 28 games.

Suarez's goals have undeniably aided Atletico Madrid to hold onto top spot in the La Liga table. His continued good form could help the Rojiblancos lift their first league title in seven years.

#5 Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) - 16 goals in 22 games

Despite Liverpool's struggles this season, Mohamed Salah has continued to find the back of the net, much like he has throughout his stint at the club.

The 28-year-old has scored 16 goals in the 2020-21 Premier League and is the club's leading goal-scorer by far. In fact, Salah has scored more than twice as many goals as anyone else for Liverpool this campaign.

Liverpool will hope that Salah continues to deliver as they try to confirm a top-four spot at the end of the season.
