Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen is fourth in the goalscoring charts for U-23 players across Europe’s top five leagues.
Osimhen has scored 10 Ligue 1 goals for Lille so far this season and he is tied on the same spot with Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez in the U-23 charts.
Marcus Rashford currently sits top of the list with 14 goals for Manchester United, while his England teammate Tammy Abraham has 13 to his name as he continues to impressively lead the line for Chelsea.
Kylian Mbappe is third on the list with 11 goals, Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, who has nine goals to his name, is tied with Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, with the same number of goals.
Everton’s Richarlison and teammate Dominic Calvert-Lewin have both scored eight times this season.

Real Sociedad striker Mikel Oyarzabal makes up the 10th spot in the U-23 goalscoring charts with seven, as the La Liga outfit hunt for an unlikely Champions League spot.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old Osimhen was the youngest to reach 10 goals in any of Europe’s top five leagues this season. He was 20 years and 357 days as at the time he scored against Monaco in a 5-1 bashing on December 21, 2019.
