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.

The Italian champions will certainly welcome the creative adrenaline shot as they prepare for life post-Antonio Conte, but who will rival Calhanoglu for playmaker bragging rights in 2021/22? Rodrigo de Paul, second in the chances created table, recently joined Atletico Madrid, so he’s out of the question.

Luis Alberto finished third under Inter’s new boss Simone Inzaghi at Lazio, but can he replicate those showings under Maurizio Sarri? Federico Dimarco (fifth) returns to Inter following his loan spell at Verona, so Calhanoglu has in-house competition, while Lorenzo Pellegrini (sixth) will be hoping his creative freedom is not stifled by the pragmatic teachings of Jose Mourinho at Roma.

Read on below to see the final standings for 2020/21 to have an idea of who may be in the mix this season. And return here through the 2021/22 Serie A campaign to see which players are leading the charge for chances created.
