Jonas, Lionel Messi, Mohamed Salah, Ciro Immobile and Robert Lewandowski have even already outscored Estonian duo Rauno Sappinen and Albert Prosa, who shared the honour of being the most prolific players in Europe's 13 calendar year 'summer' leagues. While Jonas and Messi jointly lead the way, the Barcelona man is top of the ESM Golden Shoe rankings as goals in different leagues carry different weights.
