Journeymen! The 7 Players Who Have Scored in the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A

In what is likely to be a difficult pub quiz question for many years to come, there have been just seven players who have managed to score a goal in Europe's top four leagues; the Premier League, La Liga, the Bundesliga and Serie A. While there have been many players to have played top flight football in England, Spain, Germany and Italy, only a handful have found the back of the net in all four leagues. Here are the seven individuals... Scored for: Stoke City (Premier League), Barcelona (La...

Florin Raducioiu

Scored for: West Ham (Premier League), Espanyol (La Liga), VfB Stuttgart (Bundesliga), & Bari, Verona, Brescia and AC Milan (Serie A)


A real blast from the past, Florin Raducioiu rose to prominence following his goals for Romania at the 1994 World Cup, yet by that time he was already a Serie A and Champions League winner with AC Milan, although he barely featured for the Rossoneri.


Success in Spain with Espanyol and a goal at Euro 96 prompted an unsuccessful move to East London where he fell out with Hammers boss at the time, Harry Redknapp. A return to Espanyol was followed by a short spell with Stuttgart to complete his journey across Europe.

Pierre Wome

Scored for: Fulham (Premier League), Espanyol (La Liga), Werder Bremen (Bundesliga), and Bologna and Brescia (Serie A)


The legendary Cameroon international regularly swapped teams during his 16 year career in Europe. He started in Italy, first scoring in the Serie A with Bologna, after drawing a blank with Roma, before moving on to Espanyol where he bagged a single La Liga goal.


A goal for Fulham in a 3-0 win over West Brom represented his only Premier League strike during his solitary season with the Cottagers and, after returning to Italy with Brrescia and Inter Milan, he completed the trick by netting for new club Werder Bremen in 2006.

Jon Dahl Tomasson

Scored for: Newcastle United (Premier League), Villarreal (La Liga), VfB Stuttgart (Bundesliga) and AC Milan (Serie A)


The majority of Tomasson's career goals came in the Eredivisie with Heerenveen and Feyenoord, but his short voyage across Europe allowed him to score in each of the top four leagues to enhance his already well-established reputation as a legendary striker.


The Dane was a complete flop at Newcastle United, but was adored by fans at the San Siro, where he won both the Serie A title and Champions League. The pattern of repeated teams continues in this list as a two-year spell with Stuttgart followed, before finding the back of the net in Spain too with Villarreal.

Gheorghe Popescu

Scored for: Tottenham Hotspur (Premier League), Barcelona (La Liga), Hannover 96 (Bundesliga) and Lecce (Serie A)


Raducioiu's international teammate Gica Popescu also makes the cut, scoring for every club he played for Europe's top four leagues, despite playing most of his football from a defensive position.


Signed by Spurs after the 1994 World Cup, Popescu made it big when he joined Barcelona thereafter where he remained prolific in front of goal. A lengthy spell in Turkey with Galatasaray was followed by low-key moves to Lecce and Hannover 96 respectively, but still managed to register goals in both leagues despite being at the end of his career.

Obafemi Martins

Scored for: Newcastle United (Premier League), Levante (La Liga), VfL Wolsburg (Bundesliga) and Inter Milan (Serie A)


Another appearance for the Magpies, who spent €15m on the powerful Nigerian striker, after he had broken through the ranks at Inter Milan during the early 2000s. Martins spent three seasons on Tyneside, where he incredibly finished with the same league stats from his time in Italy; 28 goals in 88 games.


He continued to find the goal during a single season in the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg, before moving to Russia and returning to the Premier League on loan with Birmingham City. Another clinical season with Levante in Spain preceded his moves to the MLS and then China.

Kevin-Prince Boateng

Scored for: Portsmouth (Premier League), Las Palmas (La Liga), Hertha Berlin and Schalke 04 (Bundesliga), and AC Milan (Serie A)


Undoubtedly a talented footballer, some would say that KPB wasted his potential, despite playing for some of Europe's biggest teams. After making his professional debut with Hertha Berlin whom he scored in the Bundesliga with, the Ghanian international moved to the Premier League.


He didn't make the cut with Tottenham Hotspur, but whilst at Portsmouth Boateng did break his top flight duck. From Fratton Park, the midfielder spent two spells at AC Milan, sandwiched between a successful stint with Schalke. Boateng currently plays in La Liga with Las Palmas, who complete the quartet of top flight goals in Europe. 

Bojan Krkic

Scored for: Stoke City (Premier League), Barcelona (La Liga), Mainz 05 (Bundelisga), and Roma and AC Milan (Serie A)


The diminutive Spanish striker's goal for Mainz 05 on the weekend made him the most recent addition to this list. Bojan is currently on loan in the Bundesliga, after fallen out of favour at Stoke City, with whom he's scored regularly for in the last couple of years.


Previously, the 26-year-old came through the ranks at Barcelona, but with competition for places so high, he was forced to move to both Roma and AC Milan in the Italian top flight in search of first team football.
