UEFA.com looks at the top five in the overall rankings as well as those in the top six leagues according to UEFA coefficient rankings that earn multiple automatic places in next season's UEFA Champions League.

Jonas, Lionel Messi and Mohamed Salah 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 leads this ranking, Salah is top of the ESM Golden Shoe rankings as goals in different leagues carry different weights.
