All-Time Serie A Top Scorers – Top 3 Profiles
Silvio Piola – Pro Vercelli, Lazio, Juventus, Novara
Piola was one of the most feared strikers of his generation and is widely recognised as one of the greatest Italian footballers of all time.
The Serie A title eluded him during his career, but he gained notable compensation by winning the World Cup with Italy in 1938.
He was previously the oldest player to score two goals in a single Serie A match, a record that stood for more than 63 years until it was beaten by Totti in 2016.
Following his death in 1996 Piola had two stadiums named after him in Novara and Vercelli, highlighting the esteem in which he was held.
Francesco Totti – Roma
Totti spent his entire senior career with Roma, winning one Serie A title, two Italian Cups and two Italian Super Cups.
He is the top goalscorer and most capped player in Roma’s history, while his tally of 250 goals is the record for the most scored in Serie A for a single club.
Totti played for much of his career as a second striker, causing chaos to defences with his skill, vision and playmaking ability.
He won the Serie A Player of the Year award on five occasions and was an integral part of Italy’s World Cup-winning squad in 2006.
Gunnar Nordahl – AC Milan, Roma
Anyone thinking that Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the most prolific Swedish striker to play in Italian football would be seriously mistaken.
Nordahl was the scourge of defences across Serie A after joining Milan in 1949, helping the team win two league titles during a seven-year stint with the club.
He also topped the scoring charts In Italy’s top flight on five occasions, including a record-breaking 35 during the 1949-50 campaign.
It took another 66 years for that record to be beaten, with Gonzalo Higuain’s 36-goal tally for Napoli in 2015/16 finally usurping Nordahl’s achievement.
