Southampton forward Graziano Pelle has defied many odds to become a dangerous hitman in the English Premier League. Not a goal-scoring threat until age 27, Pelle is one of a select few of Italians who have succeeded in England. His unique road to becoming an international superstar doesn't take away from the immense talent the 30-year-old possesses. In his last 122 games for his club team dating back to 2012 with Feyenoord, he's bagged 78 goals. As a result of his form, he was called up to the Italian national team in October, 2014 and has remained a fixture of the country since. He's scored three goals for Italy, helping the Azzurri to the top of their Euro 2016 qualifying group. One of his goals came in a 1-0 win over Malta that spared Italy of a draw against the minnows. Off the pitch, he's dating Hungarian model Viktoria Varga. The two have dated for more than three years and consistently post photos with one another on Instagram.
