That would be Manchester United target Darwin Nunez.
The Uruguayan’s blistering form for Benfica has seen him draw the attention of the Red Devils.
Nunez, 22, has scored 18 goals in 18 Primeira Liga appearances this term, at an average of a strike every 70 minutes.
United scouts were reportedly in attendance on Monday last week, as the forward scored in his side’s 3-1 victory over Tondela.
Haaland, meanwhile, has bagged his 16 Bundesliga goals this term at one every 72 minutes.
While Lewandowski has taken 73 minutes between his 26 efforts.

Nunez’s fellow 22-year-old Juan Manuel Boselli has five goals at one every 89 minutes on loan at Tondela in Portugal.
While Euro 2020 winner Ciro Immobile has one every 96 minutes for Lazio, having netted 19 in Serie A.
