Serie A was home to the most prolific playmaker in 2020/21 across Europe’s top five leagues: Hakan Calhanoglu.

His 98 chances created topped the pile as he finished ahead of Bruno Fernandes (95) and Memphis Depay (94), with the Turkey international’s audacity and braggadocio on the ball also translating to his transfer policy as he bravely crossed the Milan-Inter divide this summer.

But his chance creation is yet to carry over to Inter Milan, with Calhanoglu nowhere to be found in the top 10 for chances created in Serie A so far. Leading the way as things stand is Lorenzo Pellegri who has set up 36 chances so far this season, three more than Antonio Candreva – the only other player to hit the 30-plus mark.

Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne completes the top three with 27 chances created and things are a bit tighter below him, with just two chances separating fourth-placed Ruslan Malinovskyi and Razvan Marin in 10th.

Read on below to see which players are leading the charge for chances created.
