With the European Championships right around the corner, What Are The Odds takes a look at the players with an outside chance of taking home the Golden Boot.
Memphis Depay (18/1)
I’m not totally convinced by the Netherlands under Frank De Boer, but there’s one thing I don’t need any convincing on and that’s the potency of Memphis Depay leading their attack.
The Lyon forward has enjoyed his best goal-scoring season since he was at PSV and has proven his eye for goal for the Oranje already; scoring 80% of his national goals in the last 52% of his appearances.
The Dutch have a favourable group too – with Austria, North Macedonia and Ukraine – and the Lion could be ready to finally step up on the international stage.

Another player that could be ready to step up for his country is Italy’s Ciro Immobile.
The Lazio striker has tormented Serie A defences for the last 5 years, and is another player with a favourable group draw. His first appearances at a major tournament since 2014 will come against Turkey, Switzerland, and Wales respectively, and, with three goals in his last three starts, Ciruzzo could be the catalyst Gli Azzurri need for European glory once more.

Ferran Torres (33/1)
Bursting onto the scene in the 2019/20 season for Valencia before completing a £20m move to Manchester City last summer, Ferran Torres has already proved his worth to Spain manager Luis Enrique.
Despite only making eight starts for La Roja, Torres has found the net on six separate occasions – including a hat-trick against Germany.
With group opponents that aren’t formidable, and a starting berth all but guaranteed, Ferran is in with a chance of replicating his namesake Fernando’s 2012 feat.
Burak Yilmaz (50/1)
With Turkey fancied by many to spring a few shocks and with Şenol Güneş back at the helm, why not take a look at Burak Yilmaz to top the scoring charts?
The Ligue 1 winner bagged 16 times in 23 starts for Lille this season, and has been in good nick for his national team too.
The penalty-taking veteran has five goals in his last four starts for the Crescent Stars, including a hat-trick against the Netherlands in March.
