Mbwana Samatta has been in outstanding form for club side KRC Genk this season.
The 26-year-old has scored an incredible 29 goals in 39 appearances across all competitions for the Belgium club this season, with 20 of his strikes coming in the league.
Samatta currently leads the race for the Belgium Pro League golden boot with Genk eight points clear atop the league standings after 27 rounds of fixtures.
The Tanzania international has scored 10 goals in his last 10 league matches for Genk and is the third highest scorer across all top-flight leagues - sitting only behind Qatari-based Baghdad Bounedjah and Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
Samatta has been heavily linked with a move away from the Belgium club with Real Betis and Cardiff City among those reportedly interested in his services.
Genk next face Sporting Charleroi on Saturday.
