Tabitha Chawinga has emerged the Swedish Damallsvenskan top scorer of the 2017 season. 

The 21-year-old netted 25 league goals for Kvarnsveden in 22 games, with 10 more than her closest challenger, including 12 as openers this season.

Chawinga launched her maiden season in Sweden in style when she scored 39 goals in 18 games for Swedish third-division side, Krokom/Dvärsätt IF to clinch the league's golden boot in 2014.

In her debut topflight season, she finished third top scorer in her maiden season scoring 15 goals and was nominated for the Best Forward of the Year in 2016.

Earlier in September, while away at the Cosafa Women's Cup in Zimbabwe, Chawinga netted eight goals in three games before Malawi narrowly crashed out of the tournament.

With Jonas Björkgren's ladies relegated after two seasons in the Swedish topflight, the African talented forward is heavily linked with a move to China.
