Premier League clubs could be on alert as Juventus are seemingly ready to sell Fernando Llorente this summer, understands.
The 29-year-old Spaniard, who only just joined the club this season from Athletic Bilbao, has struggled to find his best form in Serie A, and is currently suffering something of a goal drought, going seven games without a goal, and with just one in his last ten apperarances in all competitions. Juve manager Antonio Conte could be ready to make a number of changes to his attack this summer, with the likes of Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella also being linked with moves away from the club.
The likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur were linked with Llorente back in January, with Juventus believed to be open to loaning the striker out, though a move never materialised. Still, an exit looks increasingly likely for the former La Liga star, though it remains to be seen if top clubs will retain their interest in the player after such a poor run of recent form. Llorente also only managed five goals in his final season in Bilbao, though he had emerged as one of Europe’s top attacking players the season before as he scored 29 in all competitions for the club, catching the eye in particular with some terrific performances against Manchester United in the Europa League.
