Ranking the Top 10 Contenders to Be Bundesliga Top Scorer

Can anyone challenge Lewandowski?

In Germany, the Bundesliga's top goalscorer is awarded the "Torjagerkanone" by respected sports magazine Kicker.

It seems inevitable that Bayern Munich's new striker and last year's Torjagerkanone recipient Robert Lewandowski, signed on a free transfer from rivals Borussia Dortmund, will head the German domestic league's scoring charts once again, provided he steers clear of injury. So perhaps we should ask, who will finish behind Lewandowski as Bundesliga top scorer this season?

Given that the two heavyweights, Dortmund and Bayern, have scored the most goals in the Bundesliga for the past four seasons, it is understandable that their attacking talent dominates the list.

Here we look at the contenders for Lewandowski's cannon this coming season.

The rankings are in reverse order, based on their teams' overall firepower, the players' previous Bundesliga scoring records and penalty-taking abilities.

Once again, we thank Kicker and WhoScored.com for their statistics and transfer fees.
