Antonio Di Natale
The former two-time Capocannoniere defines the term evergreen. He will turn 36 this October, but he's scored more than 20 goals in each of the last four years.
Udinese's talisman is getting a rare treat this year. For the first time in several years, the team has not engaged in a massive sell-off in the summer transfer window.
That means that Di Natale will be complemented this year by young attacker Luis Muriel (11 goals in 23 games in all competitions last year). He won't have Matej Vydra to play off—he's going to England on loan again, this time to West Brom. However, the league's top returning scorer will have enough around him to score in bunches.
Di Natale is looking to get to one last World Cup this summer, providing added motivation for a good season.
Antonio Conte's new toy has a fantastic midfield behind him, anchored by one of the best passers in the history of the game in Andrea Pirlo. The service he's going to get with such fantastic support will be excellent.
However, that midfield is also why Tevez isn't a sure bet to challenge for the Capocannoniere. Arturo Vidal and Claudio Marchisio have scored 17 and 15 goals in the league over the last two seasons. That's not to mention Paul Pogba, who scored five in a part-time role and has a proclivity for long-distance shooting.
Such accomplished goalscorers in the midfield will siphon goals from Tevez and new strike partner Fernando Llorente.
Conte's system spreads the scoring burden. He's never had a striker of Tevez's quality, though, so it's not certain whether that is a natural quality of his 3-5-2 or if it was meant to mask his heretofore lack of an elite finisher.
Regardless, Tevez can be expected to score 15 to 25 goals—something Juve hasn't had in years.
The young Argentine broke out last year with 15 goals for Roma. Only Pablo Osvaldo scored more for the capital club.
The 21-year-old will have Osvaldo and club legend Francesco Totti to play off, and there's no telling what the fallout will be from Osvaldo's dustup with former coach Aurelio Andreazzoli at the Coppa Italia final, and whether it will affect his place in the team.
If he takes a more focal role in the team's attack and continues improving on the same curve, a 20 to 25-goal season is by no means out of the question.
