Top Goal Scorer 2023/2024 Season: The top 10 goalscorers across world football: Mbappe Takes the lead

5 minutes read

As the end of the 2023–2024 season is fast approaching, players from Bayern Munich, PSG, and Al-Nassr are among the world’s leading scorers.

Every football club is keen to sign a goalscorer, and fortunately for these teams, they have some of the finest in the business.

We’ve decided to look closer at the ten players who have scored the most goals in 2023–24 thus far. For this rating, we considered players who are currently competing at the top level in their respective countries.

International goals are included (Club goals alone)

1. Kylian Mbappe (PSG): 39 goals

It’s no surprise that Mbappe is ranked first on this list, given he is widely regarded as the finest player in the world now. In the absence of Lionel Messi and Neymar, the French forward has stolen the spotlight at PSG.

He’s scored 39 goals in just 40 games, averaging one per 81.8 minutes. Unsurprisingly, he is far ahead in the Ligue 1 Golden Boot competition.

2. Harry Kane (Bayern Munich): 38 goals.

Since joining Bayern Munich, Kane has demolished Bundesliga defenses with ease. The England captain is currently averaging one goal every 84.8 minutes, which is an incredible return.

He’ll undoubtedly need to be on top of his form near the end of the season if Bayern Munich wants to make amends for their Bundesliga failure in Europe.

3. Viktor Gyokeres (Sporting FC): 36 goals

The Swedish forward is currently in top form, scoring 36 goals in 42 games for Sporting across all competitions.

As a result of his impressive success, a number of prominent European clubs are now interested in the 25-year-old. With Arsenal and Chelsea reportedly interested, he may be in the midst of a bidding war this summer.

3. Cristiano Ronaldo ( Al- Nassr): 36 goals.

Ronaldo is now the joint-third highest goal scorer in 2023–24, having scored in the Saudi Pro League, AFC Champions League, King’s Cup, and Arab Club Champions Cup.

He ended the calendar year 2023 as the highest goalscorer in world football and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. Few footballers can match Ronaldo’s durability in the game.

5. Aleksandar Mitrovic (Al Hilal): 31 goals

Following his £50 million summer transfer from Fulham, the Serbian attacker has been dominating the Saudi Pro League.

He has led Al-Hilal to the league’s top spot and is also a top scorer in the AFC Champions League.

According to Capology, Mitrovic earns approximately £415,000 each week in Saudi Arabia. With that kind of money, you’d expect him to be hammering in the goals.

7. Erling Haaland (Manchester City): 30 goals

A top scorer’s list would be incomplete without Haaland. While the Manchester City forward hasn’t scored as much as he did last season, he remains one of the world’s leading scorers.

Despite missing a chunk of the season due to injury, he leads the race for the Premier League Golden Boot and is also the Champions League’s joint top scorer.

Even if he has missed a few major opportunities, he is still one of the finest in the business right now.

Following his time in Spain with Sevilla and Barcelona, De Jong returned to PSV in the summer of 2022. He has also rekindled his goal-scoring touch, hitting 49 goals in just a year and a half for the Dutch club.

Across all competitions, the 33-year-old has scored 31 goals and provided 14 assists.

8. Vangelis Pavlidis (Az Alkmaar): 29 goals

Pavlidis has made numerous headlines in the Netherlands, where he is presently having one of his finest scoring seasons.

The Greek forward is leading the battle for the Eredivisie Golden Boot, and he has propelled AZ Alkmaar to fourth place. In all competitions, he averages one goal every 127.5 minutes.

9. Lee Bonis (Larne FC): 27 goals

Bonis, who plays for Northern Ireland’s Larne FC, has been in top form this year. The 24-year-old has 27 goals in all competitions and joins some excellent company on this list.

Larne presently leads the NIFL Premiership by just two points over Linfield. If they win the league this season, Bonis will play an important part.

9. Lawrence Shankland (Midlothian): 27 goals.

Shankland’s prolific career with Hearts has earned him a large following in the EFL. He is presently leading the battle for the Scottish Premiership Golden Boot, having scored more goals than Celtic and Rangers this season.

With his contract in Scotland slated to end in 2025, he’s likely to transfer this summer.
