The 32-year-old has been one of the surprise packages and it’s no surprise to see him as one of Europe’s most prolific goalscorers.

What makes Ilicic an interesting case, though, is that he’s only completed six 90-minute matches. So to fire home 13 Serie A goals in an impressive achievement on his behalf.

Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini is clearly handling his player well. It’s enabled him to extract the very best from Ilicic.

The Slovenia international even bagged a hat-trick in the club’s 7-0 thrashing of Torino last weekend.
