Most Serie A goals 2021/22: Capocannoniere standings for this season

Cristiano Ronaldo maintained his exquisite final-third form last term to be named Serie A top scorer but, having returned to Manchester United, Italy will have a new Capocannoniere holder by the end of the campaign.

Romelu Lukaku was on Ronaldo’s coattails with 24 goals last term to help fire Inter Milan to their first league title in 11 years, but like the Portuguese superstar, he too has left for the Premier League, moving back to Chelsea.

Lukaku’s now-former teammate Lautaro Martínez took his impressive domestic form into the summer, scoring three for Argentina at Copa America, and will hope to build on his stellar scoring streak since trading Racing for Inter in 2018.

But will the top goalscorer, or ‘head gunner’ as he’s called in Italy, emerge from the usual crop of contenders, or will we see a breakthrough season from elsewhere?
