An entire season is a long time to judge a player and their performances, and it is common to see many faces revive their form in the middle of the campaign and continue it till the end. Owing to that very idea, let’s have a look at the players across Europe’s top five leagues with the most goal contributions.
10. Duvan Zapata (Atalanta) – 18
Zapata ranks ahead of many greats in the continent this season by the numbers, and has been important for La Dea in their quest to secure Champions League football again.
9. Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan) – 18
Lukaku is among the highest scorers in Serie A and his new found glory under Antonio Conte has made him one of the most threatening forwards in the league.

3. Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund) – 24
Haaland is simply from another world, and had Robert Lewandowski not been what he is, the Bundesliga would have had Haaland as their one true prince. The Norway international has been on fire in 2021 and surpasses many recognised players in terms of the numbers delivered.
2. Gerard Moreno (Villarreal) – 25
The most shocking inclusion on the list, Gerard Moreno has been stellar this season for Villareal, and considering that he hasn’t played as many games as the rest, it makes his contributions all the more valuable.
