Athletic Club Bilbao’s Aritz Aduriz may very well be the most disappointing player in La Liga so far. Tasked with replacing Fernando Llorente, the Basque striker has just not been able to find his rhythm.
After scoring 18 goals in all competitions last season, Aduriz is yet to find the back of the net in what is one of his worst starts to a season in his career.
Not only is the Athletic Club striker failing to score, he is also struggling to get chances. He has only taken 15 total shots this year and is giving the ball away at least two times every match.
It would be better if Aduriz was contributing in other areas, but he isn’t. The 32-year-old is only completing 64 percent of his passes and is delivering a key pass only 0.9 times per game.
To say that Aduriz is struggling is putting it lightly. Athletic Club has arguably the best young strikers in Spain in their youth system and Aduriz could soon find himself on the bench.
The Basque striker has got to find his scoring boots. With Llorente gone, Los Leones desperately need a target man and Aduriz is yet to provide the club with a capable center-forward.
