1. Alvaro Morata (Juventus) - 30 goals+assists, 41 games
Alvaro Morata who is on loan at Juventus from Atletico Madrid gets criticism from many due to his performances on the pitch, but there is no doubt that he contributes by scoring crucial goals. The Spaniard has been involved in 30 goals plus assists so far this season, of which 18 have been goals.
2. Federico Chiesa (Juventus) - 22 goals+assists, 41 games
Another Juventus player who is on loan from Fiorentina, Federico Chiesa has been touted for great things and has shown glimpses of why he is so highly rated so far this season. The 23-year-old has been involved in 22 goals and assists and will no doubt look to add more to his kitty by the time the campaign ends.
3. Borja Mayoral (AS Roma) - 22 goals+assists, 43 games
A striker who is on loan at AS Roma from Real Madrid, Borja Mayoral came through the youth academy at the Bernabeu - but was frustratingly not given enough chances to prove himself. He has been impressive at Roma scoring 15 goals in all competitions so far and looking at his performances, the Italians might just buy him permanently in the summer.
4. Angelino (RB Leipzig) - 19 goals+assists, 35 games
Angelino was sent out to RB Leipzig on loan from Manchester City, with the German side so impressed by him that they made his loan deal permanent in February, 2021. At 24-years-old, he still is yet to reach his peak and it would not be a surprise if he makes the move to a bigger club in the near future.
5. Musa Barrow (Bologna) - 19 goals+assists, 36 games
Another youngster who has impressed greatly in the Serie A has been Musa Barrow, with the striker moving to Bologna from Atalanta in January 2020. The Gambia international is yet to become consistent in front of goal, but given time he has the potential to become a world beater.
