Ernesto Javier Chevantón Espinosa, commonly known only as Javier Chevanton, is an Uruguayan international footballer who currently features for the Spanish giants Sevilla FC. He plays as a striker and is renowned for his goal scoring prowess.

Javier Chevanton graduated from his native Uruguayan club Danubio and in his first season for the senior side, he hit 33 goals from 30 matches but couldn’t score any more in the season after an interviewer informed him that if he scored 3 more goals, he would break the record for a season.

Chevanton made the big move across the oceans to Italian side Lecce in 2001 and played for them until the summer of 2004 and left for the French principality club AS Monaco on a free transfer after scoring 48 times in 92 appearances for Lecce. In the Serie A 2003-04 he was the fourth goalscorer of the tournament with 19 goals and became the all-time goalscorer for Lecce, overcoming former Argentinian national team and Lecce player Pedro Pablo Pasculli.
