Arsenal could make a January loan move for Juventus striker Fernando Llorente, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 28-year-old has been used sparingly since his summer move from Athletic Bilbao - mainly due to Antonio Conte often opting to play Carlos Tevez alongside Fabio Quagiliarella in Juventus' forward positions.

Llorente is said to be keen on a temporary move away from the Juventus Stadium as he is worried about missing out on a place in Spain boss Vicente del Bosque's 2014 World Cup squad.

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal would be one of a number of clubs who would be interested in signing the striker when the transfer window re-opens in January.

After forking out £42.4million on Mesut Ozil, Wenger wants to bolster his squad by adding another striker to his ranks.

The Frenchman is keen to sign a forward who would compete with Olivier Giroud for a first-team spot and Llorente may just be his best bet.
