If we consider the current best forward or the forward who is passing the magical performance in European football, we must say the name of Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. Some will definitely say the name of the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, Sergio Aguero or Timo Werner as well. But very few people will say the name of Ciro Immobile. But the truth is, 29 years old Italian striker Ciro Immobile is overtaking Cristiano Ronaldo!
From the Spanish giants Real Madrid, in the last season, the Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo has moved to the Italian side Juventus. Ronaldo won a total of four awards of becoming the highest goal scorer in Europe already but after arriving at the Old Lady camp, in the last season, he missed the award. At the same time, he failed to become the highest scorer in Serie A as well. In the season, the former Man United striker is trying hard. But if we should fail, it will be definitely for Ciro Immobile.

Now, the question is, who is the Italian striker Ciro Immobile actually? He is currently 29 years old and playing for the Serie A side like Cristiano but his team is Lazio. In the ongoing season, the 29 years old Italian striker has played a total of 21 league matches and scored 25 goals so far. It is half dozen more than the Portuguese star actually. After the season, he might get the award of becoming the highest goal scorer in Europe possibly.
Yesterday, his team Lazio beat SPAL by a 5 – 1 goal in Serie A. The Italian forward Ciro has scored two goals in the match. Including his last two goals, in the running season of Serie A, he has scored 25 goals where his team Lazio scored a total of 52 goals so far. It is nearly 50 percent. After the 21st round in Serie A, his goal is 25! Last time Serie A witnessed such magical performance in the year of 1959. The former Inter Milan striker Antonio Valentin Angelillo made the record. Wearing the Inter’s shirt, he scored 25 goals after the first 21st round.

In the year of 2011, Ciro presented an amazing performance wearing the shirt of Pescara. He spent a loan season there at that time. In his last ten years, Ciro Immobile has scored a total of 123 goals in the Italian league. Most of them are with Lazio. Excluding the Blue team of Rome, he also played with Juventus and Genoa. In the meantime, he played for the German side Borussia Dortmund and Spanish Sevilla but could not prove himself.
