Llorente struggled to make an impact in his second season at Juventus, finishing with just eight goals in 40 appearances.

Alvaro Morata received the lion's share of the starts alongside Carlos Tevez this season, pushing Llorente to a reserve role for the most part and limiting his production. The 30-year-old insists that he is happy at the club, however, and is expected to stay at Juventus despite interest from clubs abroad.

Fernando Llorente: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Llorente scored in the 39th minute of Juventus' 2-1 win over Atalanta on Friday.

Llorente took three shots in the game, with his only one on target finding the back of the net. It was his fifth Serie A goal of the season, but first since Dec. 18 against Cagliari. While he's a consistent starter for the most part, he just doesn't finish nearly enough to be a viable top-tier fantasy forward.

Llorente boasts four goals through 13 starts in Serie A so far this season.

Llorente has generally disappointed this season after erupting for 16 goals and five assists in his debut Serie A campaign last term. While Llorente often partners top striker Carlos Tevez in Juventus' attack, youngster Alvaro Morata has currently matched Llorente's goal total despite having made only two starts this season.

Llorente scored his first goal of this season in Sunday's match versus Palermo.

Llorente tallied 16 goals for Juventus last season, but got off to a slow start in his second term in Turin. However, with the Spanish striker opening his account Sunday, Llorente will aim to kick-on and find form in front of goal.

Llorente took four shots, with three on goal, during Juventus' 2-0 Champions League win over Malmo on Tuesday.

Llorente is starting up front with Carlos Tevez, but it was the latter who bagged a brace in the opening group stage match. Llorente has taken nine shots in his last three games in all competitions and looks poised to break through sooner rather than later.

Llorente scored in the 31st and 76th minutes of Juventus' 4-1 win over Cagliari on Sunday.

Llorente now has three goals and an assist in his last three Serie A matches. With the way Juve have been playing lately, there should be more goals in his future.
