With 41 goals for Bayern Munich this season he has certainly found the net relatively easy. Gomez also scored six times in just four starts for Germany in qualifying. His odds are 8/1.
Robin Van Persie is not far behind Gomez at attractive odds of 10/1. The Arsenal striker has almost helped his side to third place in the Premier League on his own, scoring 30 goals.
The Holland striker has managed to stay fit for the majority of the campaign too, something which he has found difficult in the past. Six goals in six appearances for Holland in qualifying show just how prolific he has been in front of goal. You can back the 28-year-old at 10/1.
Despite not being in one of the teams that are so called favourites for the tournament, it is difficult not to talk about Cristiano Ronaldo picking up the award. The Real Madrid attacker scored an astonishing 57 times for his club this campaign.
With seven goals in qualifying for Euro 2012, Ronaldo has certainly taken his club form into the international stage. He is being offered at 14/1.
Spain are the favourites to win the competition outright this year. However they will have to retain their trophy without main goal scoring threat David Villa as the striker is out with a leg injury.
This now opens the door for Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente who has scored 27 goals for his club this season.
Although Llorente does not have the same international experience as Gomez, Van Persie or Ronaldo, he certainly has impressed in his short Spain career with three goals in five matches.
The 27-year-old is a slight outsider at 20/1 with Paddy Power and is sure to see plenty of support.
