Ciro Immobile is fast taking giant strides above other players across Europe's top five leagues after being involved in massive 28 goals for Lazio this season.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano are widely known for their prodigious killer instinct in the box and they have unarguably demonstrated that daring feat for over a decade to the excitement of football fans.
But it is the Lazio star who is taking the fast lead across top five leagues which is conversely marking him out as a potential golden shoe winner when the campaigns come to an end.
Immobile has netted 23 goals, grabbing 5 assists in the process for the Italian side in just 1562 minutes played (88 minutes per goal).
Ronaldo managed to get closer to him in the Serie A top-scorer log but a seven-goal gap is too huge for the Portuguese to overtake.
Close to Immobile in Europe is RB Leipzig star Timo Werner who has already been involved in 26 goals. The Leipzig star has 20 goals and hit six assists in just 1515 minutes played.
Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski, is third having being involved in 22 goals for the German giants.
Meanwhile, Man City star Kevin De Bruyne and Leicester's Jamie Vardy are fourth and fifth with 22 and 21 involvements respectively.
Barcelona star Lionel Messi is involved in whopping 20 goals in La Liga--making him fifth, while his arch-rivals Cristiano Ronaldo is on the eighth spot having been involved in 18 goals.
Chelsea's target Jadon Sancho is sixth having being involved in 20 goals (10 goals and 10 assists), while Premier League duo Sergio Aguero and Marcus Rashford occupy ninth and tenth positions respectively having being involved in 26 goals this season.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh had reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has overtaken Gerd Muller on the top goalscorers in football history list, with the Portuguese beating the Germany legend to fifth position after his goal scoring run for Juventus.
Ronaldo's outstanding brilliance was brought into the discussion again after he singlehandedly inspired Juventus to a comfortable yet narrow 2-1 victory over Parma at the Allianz Stadium last weekend.
The Portuguese grabbed a cool brace, scoring in each half of the game to open a four-point gap with close league challengers Inter.
