Ciro Immobile has won the Serie A top scorer award as well as the European Golden Shoe.
The 30-year-old netted 35 goals for Lazio in Serie A with the Rome-based team being able to finish as high as second place if they beat Napoli tonight and results go their way.

Immobile finishes above some huge names in football including Robert Lewandowski, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lionel Messi. Lewandowski was the closest who finished on 34 goals while Ronaldo will end on 31 goals after being left out of the squad for Juventus' final game of the season against Roma.
It is, however, Immobile who can enjoy the fact that he currently sits at the top of the European goal charts.
He also has one more opportunity to raise his tally even further, with Serie A the last of the major divisions in Europe to finish the campaign.
The Portuguese superstar is still waiting to get his hands on a first Capocannoniere, but that wait will be extended by at least another 12 months, as will Ronaldo's pursuit of a fifth Golden Shoe.
The only other member of the top 10 that can add to their tally from this point is Romelu Lukaku of Inter who only has 23 goals to his name at present and would need to break all kinds of records to top Immobile.
What do you think of Immobile's amazing season?
