A genuine Torino legend, Paolo Pulici is the next player on our list of theĀ greatest Italian strikers of all time. The man nicknamed Puliciclone by renowned journalist Gianni Brera would play 14 seasons in Serie A for Il Toro, scoring 134 league goals and winning the Capocannoniere award three times as the Serie A's top scorer.

Pulici's tenacious style and dynamism endeared him to the fans, and his personal success with the club was topped off by a Serie A title in 1976, Torino's first Scudetto since the Grande Torino era of the 1940s. Pulici formed a renowned attacking partnership with another fine Italian forward of the era, Francesco Graziani, and the pair were nicknamed "I Gemelli del Gol" (the Goal Twins).
