Fernando Llorente will not leave Juventus in January,according to one of the player's agents Marco Antonio Diaz Cordero, reports Sky Sports.

Llorente, who is a current Spanish international, has barely figured for the Italian giants since his move to the club in the summer, however it now looks unlikely that he will depart Serie A in January.

Recent reports have suggested that Premier League outfit Tottenham were interested in the striker's services, but the player's agent has insisted he is not looking to move on.

Cordero has admitted that Llorente had hoped for a better start with Juventus but believes he will make an impact at the Italian giants in the near future.

Quoted in Calcionews24, Cordero stated: "He hoped to have a better start with Juventus but it's early and it's normal that Conte relies upon players he already knows well.

"Fernando is a great professional who works hard to convince the coach, he did not even dream of criticising Marcelo Bielsa when he kept him on the bench even though he was Athletic Bilbao's strongest player.

"Requests from other teams? Real Madrid made an offer to Bilbao in the past, but they had not found the agreement with Athletic. And many other clubs asked about him, but when there was the opportunity to come to Juventus, and Llorente was thrilled to accept it.

"Currently no club got in touch with me for January and in any case the clubs must speak with Chus, the player's brother. But Fernando is aware of his qualities and he wants to play his cards at Juventus. "

Juventus have a number of strikers at their disposal, with the likes of Carlos Tevez, Mirko Vucinic, Fabio Quagliarella and Sebastian Giovinco all plying their trade at the Juventus Stadium.

Juve have begun the league campaign with two victories and one draw in their opening three Serie A matches.
