With the 2023-24 season coming to an end soon, a list of the top 10 goal scorers has been put up, drawing football stars from different top-tier clubs, including PSG, Bayern Munich and Al-Nassr.

This list puts together 10 primo forwards playing in top divisions in their respective countries throughout the 2023-24 season, with international goals not included.

Bayern Munich star Harry Kane, PSG's Kylian Mbappe, and Manchester City hotshot Erling Haaland are among the players who have been in top shape.

Sports Brief takes a look at the top 10 leading goalscorers in the 2023/24 season.

10. Lee Bonis – 28 goals

The 24-year-old playing for Larne Fc has arguably had one of the best seasons ever, netting 28 goals in all competitions.

Larne leads the NIFL premiership table with 86 points after 36 matches. With two games to go, Larne are likely to win the title, with Bonis said to have a huge contribution to their success.

9. Lawrence Shankland – 28 goals

Leading the race for the Scottish league, having outshined the Celtic and Ranger’s top scorers, Lawrence Shankland has become one of the favourites in the EFL.

The English man’s contract is set to expire in 2025, with speculations that he might be seeking a move in the summer.

8. Vangelis Pavlidis – 30 goals

The Greek forward is having a great season at AZ Alkmaar, having scored 26 goals after 30 matches in the Eredivisie.

The 25-year-old leads the fight for the Golden Boot, with his club sitting in fourth place with 55 points after 30 matches. The lad has a scoring possibility every 126.2 minutes in every competition.

7. Erling Haaland – 31 goals

With the star not having a similar scoring rate to what we saw last season, this list will be incomplete if the star is not included.

The Norway national, who has missed quite a number of matches this season due to injuries, tops the PL top scorers list with 20 goals alongside Chelsea’s Cole Palmer.

6. Aleksandar Mitrovic – 33 goals

A £50million fee is what it took for the Serbian striker to effect a move to from Fulham to Al Hilal SFC in the summer, and honestly his efforts have been worth every single coin.

The 29-year-old, who now bags a £415,000 salary a week, has played a major role in placing Al Hilal top of the Saudi Pro League table with 77 points after 27 matches.

5. Luuk de Jong – 35 goals

The Dutchman national, who joined PSV in 2022, has netted 26 goals in the Eredivisie League, eight in the Champions League and 1 in the KNVP Cup.

The 33-year-old has also managed to create 15 assists over the same time.

4. Viktor Gyokeres – 36 goals

Having been fielded 44 times by his club, Sporting CP, Viktor Gyokeres has scored 36 goals in all competitions.

Chelsea and Arsenal are among clubs that are eying for the forward’s services in the summer following his stellar performance this season.

3. Harry Kane – 39 goals

Should we say the Bundesliga league has been nothing but amazing for the Englishman? Look, the lad since joining Bayern Munich from Tottenham Hotspurs, has been scoring at least one goal in every 89.5 minutes.

The 30-year-old will be crucial as Bayern hope to win the UCL title after unfortunately losing the Bundesliga title to rivals Bayern Leverkusen.

2. Kylian Mbappe – 41 goals

The Frenchman seems to be having a great time at PSG after the departure of stars, Lionel Messi and Neymar, with one goal less from topping the list of the top ten goal scorers.

Mbappe has netted 41 goals in the 42 matches he has been fielded. The star scores a goal every 82.3 minutes.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo – 42 goals

The Al Nassr forward tops the list of top ten goal scorers in the 2023-24 season.

Despite his age, Christiano Ronaldo is still proving to the world why he is the best forward to have ever lived.

Bolt picks Ronaldo as favourite player

Sports Brief also reported that Usain Bolt has reignited the timeless debate over the greatest footballer of all time (GOAT).

In a rapid-fire session, Bolt was pressed to name his favourite footballer.
