Candidates for European Golden boot 2019

Luka Jovic

The Frankfurt striker has started the season well with 12 goals to his name. The 21-year-old striker might be a bit inexperienced for the big leagues, but the young forward is the leading scorer of Bundesliga and is sure to give the pros a run for their money.


Fabio Quagliarella

A veteran of the game, Quagliarella has taken Serie A by storm. Currently playing for Sampdoria, the former Juventus forward has scored 12 goals within the past month. If he continues this form, Quagliarella might just provide contention.


Nicolas Pepe-

Another revelation who has been in a stellar form this season. The Ivorian international has already netted 12 for Lille in the Ligue 1. Currently in the second place in the scorer’s list, Pepe has turned into a potent striker.


Krzysztof Piatek-

One of the young revelations this season, the young Piatek has netted 13 times in the league so far. Already on the radar of some of the big money clubs, Piatek has been in the talks of pundits. Currently behind, Cristiano Ronaldo, in Serie A, Piatek can easily become the top contender of the Golden Shoe.


Harry Kane-

The Tottenham Hotspur striker has started off well yet again. With 13 goals already done, Kane is still raring to go. Although, his form has dipped a few times, Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in Europe. The England international will look forward to another great season after narrowly missing out last season.



The star youngster had a phenomenal year. Winning the league with PSG and the World Cup with France, Mbappe, had been named as the best player in the World Cup. Having already netted 13 times for PSG this season, Mbappecan turn matches with his mazy run and finishing ability.


Mohamed Salah-

The star of Premier League last season, Salah has played some extraordinary football in the past one year. Having secured the Premier League top scorer, Salah narrowly missed out the Golden Shoe to Messi. The Egyptian has been in fine form this season too, having netted 13 time the reds this season.


Pierre Emerick Aubameyang-

The top scorer of the Premier League this season, Aubameyang has finally found his footing in Arsenal. The 29-year-old has been in a sensational form this season, scoring 14 goals and three assists. With his current form, Aubameyang is a sure contender for this season’s Golden Shoe.


Cristiano Ronaldo-

The current top scorer of Serie A, with 14 goals, Ronaldo has been in fine form after his insane saga switch from Madrid to Juventus. The 33 year old has not lost his golden touch even after switching leagues. The Portuguese is all set to claim back his throne after losing out last season.


Lionel Messi-

The current holder of the European Golden Shoe, for the record 5th time, Messi sits at the top of the scoring charts with 15 goals. The magician is yet on a phenomenal roll and is looking to claim back his prize.
