Fernando Llorente has long been on the radar of a host of top European clubs, and Liverpool have now reportedly joined the race for his signature.

The Athletic Bilbao striker was allegedly a former target for Arsenal, but he could yet make a move to the Premier League with a transfer to Anfield.

Roy Hodgson has made no secret of his desire to recruit another forward to take the goalscoring burden away from Fernando Torres, and €15 million-rated Llorente apparently fits the bill.

The 25-year-old has scored four goals in his last five games for club and country and admits that he finds the reported interest from Liverpool flattering.

He told "It's a compliment that they are interested in me, that means I'm doing things right."

Arsene Wenger had previously been linked with the Spain international but - after sealing a summer deal for Marouane Chamakh - the Arsenal boss is unlikely to attempt to bring Llorente to the Emirates.

This would appear rule the Gunners out of the race and leave Liverpool as one of the favourites to seal a deal for the hitman - who has also attracted admirers in Serie A.
