Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see the 10 leading scorers in the history of France's top flight, according to Transfermarkt.

PSG forward Cavani is just three goals away from equalling Ibrahimovic's tally of 156 strikes for the French giants, although he will need nine more goals to surpass the Swede's Ligue 1 record.

The Uruguayan, fifth on the list, has hit the back of the net on 105 occasions in France's top flight, which is eight goals shy of Ibrahimovic’s tally of 113.

Former Monaco, Marseille and Lyon attacker Sonny Anderson is third on the list with 119 strikes, while Bafetimbi Gomis, who has made the most Ligue 1 appearances out of all the players in the top 10, is second with 122 goals.

The leading scorer in Ligue 1's history is PSG legend and former Portugal international Pauleta, who hit the back of the net on 141 occasions, although his record could be beaten if Cavani is still playing in France next season.

Former Lorient, Toulouse and Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac has 103 Ligue 1 goals to his name, while Mamadou Niang and Alexandre Lacazette are both on 100 strikes each.
