Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund is the fifth youngest foreign player to score at least six goals before his 20th Serie A appearance after Adriano, Mauro Icardi, Franck Kessié and Alexandre Pato.

The Denmark international has six goals in 19 appearances with La Dea this season and, as highlighted by Eurosport, he is among the youngest Serie A players to have reached this figure for goals before his 20th appearance in Serie A.

Only Adriano, Icardi, Kessié and Pato managed the same at a younger age.

Hojlund found the net in his last two Serie A appearances and is expected to start for La Dea against Milan on Sunday night at San Siro.

Reports in Italy claim Juventus have identified the 20-year-old to replace Dusan Vlahovic at the end of the season, should the Serbia international leave Turin in the summer.

According to Repubblica, Arsenal and Real Madrid are also scouting the Danish striker who has a contract running through June 2027 at the Gewiss Stadium.
