Premier League target wants Juventus stay

Published Add your comment

Fernando Llorente's brother has refuted speculation the Juventus striker could leave the Serie A side in January.

The Spaniard, who joined Juventus on a free transfer from Athletic Bilbao during the summer, has been limited to just one appearance for his new side so far this season.

Juventus manager Antonio Conte has instead opted to start fellow new boy Carlos Tevez upfront along with Miko Vucinic, which has led to rumours linking Llorente with a move away from the club.

Premier League trio Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham were all reported to be interested in the 28-year-old before he sealed a switch to Juventus.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are also reportedly keen on bringing Llorente back to the La Liga.

However Llorente's brother has dampened any talk of a departure away from the Juventus Stadium by telling Tuttosport: “There is nothing to say, Fernando wants to stay at Juve, period."

Despite being willing to bide his time for a regular place in Conte's side, Llorente will be desperate to get minutes under his belt so he can force his way into Vicente del Bosque's 2014 World Cup squad.
