8 – Ciro Is Still
King Ciro has reached 197 goals in Serie A, but since he is still a Lazio striker, this record can soon be improved and thus reach the champion who is superior to him, which we will tell you about in a moment. But Immobile is not alone in this ranking of targets: it ranks first.

1 – Silvio Piola
Silvio Piola’s record has stood for 69 years, and given that Serie A now lacks great flags and great forwards, it is likely that no one else will ever match it.
