Here's a player who is finally living up to his potential after several failed stints. Andre Silva is working wonders with Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.

With 14 Bundesliga goals from 17 games, he is just two shy from posting his best tally in a top-flight season, something he is expected to accomplish in the next few days.

Silva found his feet in the Bundesliga after a few underwhelming spells with Sevilla and AC Milan. He netted 12 times for the Eagles on loan last season before making his move permanent in the summer.

He has duly repaid the club's faith and has continued to shoulder much of the goal-scoring burden for his side looking to finish in the top four despite their inconsistent campaign.

#2 Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund) - 14 goals

A name few would be surprised to see so high up the list, Erling Haaland continues to plunder goals at a frightening rate for Borussia Dortmund, even during a season when the club has been well below its best.

The young Norwegian has already bagged 21 goals in all competitions this campaign, with 14 of these strikes coming in the Bundesliga from just 13 appearances.

What makes his record more impressive is that Haaland has managed this tally despite missing five games during this period due to injury.

Moreover, this is his first full season in the German top-flight. But given the form he is currently in, Haaland's numbers are only set to rise further in the coming months.

#1 Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) - 23 goals

Could it be anyone else? Robert Lewandowski has firmly etched himself as the world's best number nine, a status few would refute given his phenomenal scoring exploits with Bayern Munich.

Following his record-breaking season last year, which saw the Pole net 55 times in all competitions and finish as the top-scorer in the league, domestic cup and Europe en route to the treble, Robert Lewandowski is at it again.

In the 2020-21 season, Lewandowski has scored another 26 times, with 23 of them coming in the Bundesliga - a tally that including two hat-tricks and an ongoing eight-game scoring streak.

It is only the mid-point of the season, but Lewandowski is already miles ahead of his nearest competitor. Barring an injury or unexpected loss of form, the Pole is well on course for a fourth-consecutive Golden Boot and sixth overall.
