The Colombia international ended a short stay at Sevilla last season for a return to Italy at Fiorentina in a loan deal, where his impressive performances led to a €20.10m transfer to Atalanta.

After struggling to get off the mark in Spain, Muriel has enjoyed a welcome turn of form in the Serie A. His playing style and eye for goal has even led to comparisons with the legendary Ronaldo Nazario.

And while Josip Ilicic, Duvan Zapata and Papu Gomez get most of the plaudits for the high-flying Atalanta, Muriel deserves his fair share of praise as well.
