Hellas Verona veteran Toni chasing down Capocannoniere

Hellas Verona striker Luca Toni is targeting the Capocannoniere after his brace in their 2-2 draw with Parma.

He is now on 21 goals - one more than Juventus hitman Carlos Tevez and Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi.

"I am relaxed and hoping to take my chances," said the striker who turns 38 on Tuesday.

"Winning the Capocannoniere crown would be very satisfying for me and the team, because it is thanks to them that I have 21 goals.

"No Gialloblu player has ever been Capocannoniere in Serie A, so it'd be nice to become the first."
