Without a doubt, Serie A loves Colombians and coffee growers have felt very comfortable in one of the top five leagues in the world. Although Atalanta did not have their best season without betting on European competitions, Bergamo’s eleventh had important cards in their offense such as Duván Zapata and Luis Fernando Muriel.
After a season to forget without sustaining himself in European tournaments, the possibility of Luis Fernando Muriel and Duván Zapata leaving, by coincidence, in the same Series A was opened up. Well, Duván was interested in Silvio Berlusconi’s recently promoted Monza, while that Marseille ruled out offers for Muriel and Juventus appeared with nothing clear yet.
It seems that Serie A is the comfort zone of Duván Zapata and Luis Fernando Muriel. The Caleño jumped from Estudiantes de la Plata to Napoli in 2013 and since that year he has remained in the rented Italian through other clubs such as Udinese, Sampdoria and currently in Atalanta. A similar case is that of the Atlanticense who has also worn the colors of Udinese and Sampdoria, in addition to Lecce and Fiorentina, before joining those of Bergamo.
In each of the teams where they have passed they have left a large number of goals and have become important cards in the offensive. The official page of Serie A issued figures of the active scorers of Serie A. For this reason, Cristiano Ronaldo who left the ranks of Juventus in 2021 is not found.
A list that demonstrates the scoring power of both Colombians, as Duván Zapata is recognized for being the coffee grower with the most goals in Series A. Duván is in fifth place in that statistic with 106, while Luis Fernando Muriel is in the eighth box with 98 points, just two away from reaching a hundred and eight away from equaling his compatriot.
So, this is the complete list:
1. Ciro Immobile – Lazio | 182
2. Fabio Quagliarella – Sampdoria | 181
3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic – AC Milan | 155
4. Dries Mertens – Napoli | 113
5. Duvan Zapata – Atalanta | 106
6. Andrea Belotti – Turin | 106
7. Domenico Berardi – Sassuolo | 101
8. Luis Fernando Muriel – Atalanta | 98
9. Paulo Dybala – Juventus | 98
10. Edin Dzeko – Inter Milan | 98
Without a doubt, the cooperation of these two Colombians is an example of the high level that exists in the country. However, those who lead the table already seem to be very far from the figures of Duván Zapata and Luis Fernando Muriel. Serie A hopes that the goals of both continue despite the interests of other leagues.
