Ghana’s Sweden-based striker Abdul Majeed Waris is the best goalscorer in Europe, according to the European Golden Shoe statistics.
The Hacken hot-shot, 21, leads the way in the race for the European Golden Shoe, with 22 goals and 22 points.
The points are calculated by multiplying the reputation of the league by the number of goals scored by the player.
Barcelona legend Lionel Messi lies in second place with 11 goals and 22 points in the La Liga which means his points are multiplied by two.
The former Right to Dream Academy graduate’s goals, on the other hand, are multiplied by one as the Swedish Allsvenskan has a lower rating.
The Black Stars striker is likely to increase his tally in the competition as there are three more games to go in the Swedish league.
On-fire Columbian hit-man Falcao, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo are all in the top 20.
Waris will join Russian giants Spartak Moscow when the European transfer window opens in January.
