José Alberto Percudani (born 22 March 1965 in Bragado) is a former Argentine football striker.

Between 1982 and 1988 he played for Independiente, winning both the Libertadores Cup and the Intercontinental Cup in 1984 with the team. In the Intercontinental Cup final he scored the only goal against Liverpool FC, and was also elected as Man of the Match.

In 1987 he was called to play on the Copa América for the Argentinian national football team, and he formed the attacking section of the team with Diego Maradona and Claudio Caniggia.

In 1988 he was signed by Austria Wien, as a replacement for Toni Polster. In the 1988/89 season he scored 23 goals, with which he came in third on the top goalscorers list in Austria. However, with Austria having four foreign players in their squad and rules then allowing only two to play at the same time, he later lost his place in the team, and in 1990 he moved to Atlético Madrid.

From Atlético he moved to Universidad Católica in Chile, where he scored the winning goal for the team in the 1991 Copa Chile final. He then moved to play for Peñarol in Uruguay, before returning to Argentina, and playing for Estudiantes La Plata and Almirante Brown.
