Robin van Persie finished 2011-12 as the Premier League's top goalscorer with an impressive return of 30 goals for Arsenal.

But, with the 28-year-old Dutchman facing an uncertain future at the Emirates Stadium, who can step up to the plate and claim the Golden Boot next year?

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will be determined to improve on last season's tally of 27 goals, while Sergio Aguero of reigning champions Manchester City, will also fancy his chances of bettering the 23 goals scored in his debut campaign at the Etihad Stadium.
