Dries Mertens of Napoli, one of Serie A top goalscorers and assists providers

A friend in need is a friend indeed. This could be the motto for the next group of players. While their colleagues were busy scoring, they were busy setting them up. Here are the Serie A players who’ve been most efficient about providing goal assists this season.

Dries Mertens

The Napoli star is known as an all-around nice guy, on and off the field. It’s no surprise then that despite being one of the league’s tops scorers, he is also one of the players to record the highest number of assists. He has provided nine so far. And, it is his continuous contribution in the last few seasons that has seen Napoli charge up the Serie A table.


Milan is a team undergoing a transformation. One of the few points of constant support for the Rosonerri has been Spanish midfielder, Suso. He has played almost every single game this season and has managed 8 assists. Who wouldn’t want the 25-year-old on their FootballCoin team?

Cristiano Ronaldo

Yes, it’s Serie A’s most famed player, but many will be surprised that Ronaldo is so good when it comes to setting up goals, not just scoring them. Ronaldo has 8 assists this season, besides his 19 Serie A goals. It’s no wonder his teammates and colleagues adore the Portuguese star. Juventus is on its way to a new Serie A scudetto. They always have the UCL trophy on their minds. Much of this has to do with Ronaldo leading by example.

Fabio Quagliarella, oneof the best players in the Serie A, at 36 years old

Fabio Quagliarella

The veteran striker has been hands down one of the best players in the Serie A this season. There are few players to compare him to. Quagliarella is 36 years old. He is the top scorer in the Italian league. He’s also contributed 7 goal assists. And, he is Sampdoria’s undisputed leader. Let’s not forget that the striker is a free option in FootballCoin contests. We are hoping his career won’t stop anytime soon.

Manuel Lazzari

Lazzari finds his place on our list because of his 7 goal assists. What is more remarkable is that the player is often featured as a full-back for SPAL. Last year marked an important occasion in Lazzari’s career, his first call-up to the Italian national team. Things continue to look up and Lazzari looks to have a bright future ahead of himself.

Which of these players beckons a place on your FootballCoin team. Serie A contests await. Create your perfect team for a chance of winning your fellow managers’ respect and important XFC prizes.
