Gabriel Batistuta is another foreign Serie A icon who is known for his goalscoring instinct.

The Argentine is Fiorentina’s top scorer in the league with 152 goals. He spent nine years in Florence and led his team to Coppa Italia victory in 1996.

‘Batigol’ moved to Roma in 2000 and his first season with the club was fantastic, as he scored 20 league goals and finally won the Serie A. He was loaned out to Inter in his last 6 months in Italy, before signing for Al-Arabi in 2003.
