Alberto Gilardino wants to be Italy's top scorer this season with Fiorentina.

The former AC Milan striker has nine goals so far this season, trailing Genoa's Diego Milito by two.

Speaking toTuttosport, Gilardino said: "I want to win this season's Capocannoniere award,” Gilardino told Tuttosport.

“I have many objectives this term and one of those is finishing as the best striker in the League.

“Scoring 20 goals without any penalties would be good, but if I have to take a spot-kick to win the Golden Boot then I will.

“My best goal so far was the one against Juventus on the first day of the season.

“There's lots of competition. Milito is very good and Marco Di Vaio has found his confidence. Then there's Alessandro Del Piero, Francesco Totti and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.”
