Immobile is the best striker in Europe right now, according to his agent who believes there is nobody else outplaying the 29-year-old.

Immobile has scored an incredible 25 goals in 21 Serie A games and his agent believes he isn’t getting the proper credit he deserves.

His form has him top of the charts in the Golden Shoe award running in Europe’s top five leagues.

Lazio sit third in the Serie A and could leapfrog Inter into second place if they beat Hellas Verona on Wednesday evening in their game in hand.

“I think he is the best striker in Europe right now, let alone in Italy,” agent Alessandro Moggi told TMW Radio via Football-Italia.

“Seeing Lazio so high up the table is not a coincidence, it’s down to hard work and director of sport Igli Tare has done a great job for several years using inferior resources to many other clubs, building a competitive team that is even challenging for the Scudetto.”
