Juventus Interested in Bilbao Striker Llorente

Soon after Llorente refused to renew his contract with Athletic Bilbao, Italian giant Juventus targets the Spaniard.

Juventus wants to strengthen their league winning squad as they have submitted a bid for the 27 years old Spanish striker in the region of €16 Million. Llorente who has recently denied to renew contract with Spanish side Bilbao might leave away as his contract ends this January transfer season, so Bilbao can not risk their ace move away as a free agent.

Juventus can negotiate in near days to bring the Spaniard to themselves as everything looks to be in their favor. Llorente’s keenness to play at Champions league, his running out contract at Bilbao and Juventus as the league winner has every possible change that they can bring him to play at Seria A.

The super cup winners would like to add Llorente as they are still in search for a quality finisher.

It has also been reported that Arsenal are involved in the race to buy the striker from Europa runner up.
