Legendary Arsenal FC midfielder Paul Merson believes that Sergio Aguero will be able to snatch the English Premier League Golden Boot from both Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane.

England international Kane, who plays for Tottenham Hotspur, is currently sitting at the top of the league’s scoring charts with 23 goals.

Egyptian star Salah of Liverpool FC and Argentina, and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero have scored 22 goals and 21 goals in the league respectively.

“I know Aguero won’t be playing as many minutes as the others with the Champions League becoming the focus for Manchester City,” Merson said on King Fut.

“But I don’t know anyone else who can get four goals in a match on multiple occasions.

“Manchester City score bundles of goals so I’ve just got to go with him.”

Merson, who is a former England international, feels that Salah is a winger and not a centre-forward like which will not help him exceed his competitors.

“He’s not an out-and-out centre-forward so it would be a phenomenal feat for him,” he continued.

“Kane has proved he can score big goals in big games but Tottenham don’t blow teams away like Manchester City.”

Salah will face West Ham United in a league game which is scheduled to be played at the Anfield Stadium next week Saturday.
