Luciano Eufemio Agnolín (20 October 1915 – 20 October 1986) was an Argentine footballer, notable for being the all-time leading goalscorer at the second level of Argentine football and twice top 3 scorer in Argentine Division A.

Agnolín started his playing career in 1935 with Dock Sud in the ascenso tournament (2nd level). In 1936 he joined Tigre in the Argentine Primera but did not adapt and returned to the ascenso with All Boys.

In 1939 he joined Club Atlético Temperley where he scored 130 goals in 133 games.[1]

His good form gave him another chance to play in the Primera, this time with Club Atlético Atlanta where he scored 21 goals to become the third highest scorer behind Angel Labruna and Atilio Melone in 1944, he scored a total of 53 goals in 74 games for the club before returning to the ascenso in 1947 with Ferro Carril Oeste. He had a spell in Uruguay playing for Danubio F.C.. He also played a friendly on the Argentine national squad.
