Inter Milan striker Icardi chasing down Capocannoniere title

Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi is eyeing off the Capocannoniere title.

The Argentinian is tied with compatriot Carlos Tevez on 20 goals, with current leader Luca Toni one goal ahead.

"I have thought about it [being top scorer] and I hope I can do well. Saying that, in Genoa I had two goals chalked-off and one was legitimate…

"For a young striker like me to be among the top strikers in Serie A is fantastic on a personal level, as scoring goals is what a striker has to do.

"Toni is twice my age, but like Tevez he's done well. Now they meet in the last game, so I hope they both don't score.

"That said, I hope the team wins, that would be the best goal for me."
