Fernando Javier Llorente Torres (born 26 February 1985), nicknamed El Rey León ("The Lion King" in Spanish), is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a striker for Italian club Napoli and the Spain national team.

He started his career with Athletic Bilbao, working his way through the various youth ranks and, after making his first team debut in 2005, becoming one of the most important offensive players for the club in the following decade. He scored 29 goals in all competitions in the 2011–12 season, and was described as a "Bilbao legend". He signed with Juventus in 2013, and won the Serie A title twice during his two-year spell there. Subsequently, he spent 2015–16 back in Spain with Sevilla before moving to Swansea City in 2016, and Tottenham Hotspur in 2017.

A Spain international since late 2008, Llorente was a member of the squads which won the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012.
