Tottenham target not thinking of Juventus exit

Published Add your comment

Juventus striker Fernando Llorente, a reported target for Tottenham, is not considering forcing an exit from Turin when the transfer window opens once again in January.

The Spain international joined Juventus on a free transfer from Athletic Bilbao at the start of the summer, but has made only two appearances for the Italian champions so far this season.

This has led to speculation that Llorente could leave Juventus in the next transfer window but the 28-year-old, who scored on Sunday, is determined to develop his game under Antonio Conte in Serie A.

"I normally take a bit of time to hit form and knew I'd have to work a great deal, also because I pretty much missed the whole of last season," he said, as reported by talkSPORT.

"In addition I needed to settle in and learn the language - and adapting to a new environment is never an easy task for anyone.

"I'm getting on great here and feel the coach has faith in me, but I know I need to keep working to get back into peak condition."

According to talkSPORT, Llorente has been on the radar of Tottenham for some time, and his uncertain future at Juventus has led to renewed links with a move to White Hart Lane before the end of the season.

It remains unclear, however, if Andre Villas-Boas would recruit another forward in January given his acquisition of Spain international Roberto Soldado from Valencia in the summer transfer window.
