Arsenal transfer target, Manchester City and Liverpool pair join superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi amongst top goalscorers per 90 minutes in Europe’s top five leagues.
Note: players must have played at least ten league matches to feature. Otherwise Almeria forward Hicham Khaloua would be the best player in Europe with one goal in his four minutes of play.
10. Giuseppe Rossi (Fiorentina)
Total league goals: 14
Minutes on pitch: 1393
Goals per 90 minutes: 0.90
Fiorentina striker Giuseppe Rossi possesses the second best strike rate in Italy, but once again a knee injury has interrupted a fine run of form.
The former Manchester United and Villarreal forward has suffered three anterior cruciate ligament injuries to his right knee throughout his career, and looked favourite to win the Capocannoniere – the award for the top scorer in Serie A prior to this season’s blow.
If he can recover in time for the World Cup, he could be a significant boost to the Azzurri’s hopes.
