Harry Kane needs just five goals to become the first player to pass 40 in an English season since Cristiano Ronaldo in 2008.
The former Manchester United star, now 33, managed 42 strikes in 49 games across all competitions in his penultimate season at Old Trafford before he was sold in an £80million deal.
Ruud van Nistelrooy holds the record for the most goals scored in English football since the Premier League was introduced in 1992 with 44 in the 2003/04 season.
Kane, 24, is closing in fast on the ex-United players having scored 35 times in 36 Tottenham matches, which has even led to reports that Real are keeping tabs on the striker.
And SunSport has compared the two lethal finishers to see if the in-form England man stacks up to Ronaldo before he went to LaLiga.
Kane has scored three hat-tricks this season, including successive trebles in December, and in his next five games he will come up against teams in the bottom half of the Premier League.
