The country’s current generation is also blessed with plenty of firepower, and it has been on full display in the 2023-24 campaign. Read on to meet the five leading English scorers across the top five European leagues this season:

With Gabriel Jesus struggling to keep himself fit, Eddie Nketiah has served as Arsenal’s go-to center-forward this season. He has featured in all 10 Premier League games for the Gunners, starting eight of them.

Nketiah, who has earned one England cap so far, has found the back of the net five times in the English top flight so far with just seven shots on target. His best performance came against Sheffield United on Matchday 10, with him netting a hat-trick to propel Arsenal to a convincing 5-0 victory.

Playing 10 Premier League games, Bowen has scored six times and claimed an assist, already matching his goal tally from last season.

The five-capped England international, who scored as West Ham United inflicted a 3-1 defeat upon Arsenal in the Round-Of-16 of the Carabao Cup, produced his season-best performance against Brighton & Hove Albion on Matchday 3. He scored once and set up another as the Hammers cruised to a 3-1 win.

Wilson has started just four of his nine Premier League games this season, scoring seven times. He currently averages a goal every 60 minutes.

Wilson’s best Premier League performance came against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Matchday 10. The striker, who has scored twice in nine games for England, bagged a brace as the Magpies were held to a 2-2 draw at Molineux Stadium.

The 20-year-old has also claimed two assists in the Spanish top flight.

The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder, who won the Kopa Trophy on Monday (October 30), has bagged three braces in La Liga this season. His most impressive one, however, came against Barcelona on Matchday 11. Bellingham’s second-half double saw Los Blancos come from behind and snatch a 2-1 victory over the bitterest rivals in Catalonia.
