Lothar Kobluhn (born 12 April 1943) is a German former professional footballer who played as a midfielder. Kobluhn, who was playing for Rot-Weiß Oberhausen at the time, was the Bundesliga's top scorer in the 1970–71 season, scoring 24 goals.[1] Kobluhn had to wait 36 years for the top scorer trophy to be awarded because his club at the time, Rot-Weiß Oberhausen, was involved in the Bundesliga scandal. He finally received his award in 2007.[2]

Kobluhn later played for SG Wattenscheid 09.[3]
