Signed on a Bosman transfer from Vallodolid the Basque born forward will be looking to build upon his impressive first season in La Liga, an impressive goal tally of 17 convinced the yellow submarine to go after the 28 year old. A genuine 'Number 9' Llorente was delighted to have signed for such a big club and he was pleased by the amount of interest shown in him by the board and their keenness to bring him to El Madrigal.
His strength on the ball and his aerial ability will surely come in handy over the course of next season and indeed he is not short on technical ability or finishing skills either as can be seen when he scored the fastest goal ever scored in La Liga in a game against Espanyol. It only took him 7 seconds to put the ball in the net following kick off. Llorente seems to be another astute signing by the club and will definitely be play a key part in next seasons campaign.
