Udinese striker Antonio di Natale is keen to break Oliver Bierhoff's record for most goals scored in a season.
The 32-year-old Italy international leads the scoring charts in Serie A with 25 goals in 32 appearances this season.
Bierhoff became Capocannoniere in his third and final season with Udinese when he scored 27 goals in 1998.
Di Natale said: “To tell the truth I have never thought about becoming Capocannoniere.
“It's almost unbelievable to see my name close to those of such champions. I am among the best strikers in the world.
“For me, it's already an honour just to be there. Now I want to go to the World Cup in this sort of form.”
