Juve open Llorente talks

Juventus have confirmed that they are in negotiations with Athletic Bilbao over the transfer of Fernando Llorente.

Llorente, 27, has entered the final year of his contract and has signalled to Athletic that he does not intend to sign an extension, with reports suggesting he is unhappy with Marcelo Bielsa's management.

It remains unclear whether Athletic would be prepared to retain Llorente for the final year of his deal and allow him to leave on a free transfer next summer - Bielsa recently said that he wants "the best for the team, the player and the club" - but it appears Juve are struggling to agree terms.

"We are negotiating to bring Llorente here, but it's not an easy process because Athletic don't want to sell him," Marotta told Tuttosport.

The Bianconeri have been linked with a number of strikers this summer, as well as suggested to be considering selling at least one of their current forwards too.

Whilst Edin Dzeko and Robin Van Persie have been paired with the Turin side this summer, Athletic Bilbao’s situation with Llorente has many believing that he is now the Italians’ prime target.

However, whilst Marotta confirmed that he is under consideration, any move won’t force the departure of Alessandro Matri or Fabio Quagliarella.

“We give substance to those that we have. Like every club we try to improve our quality when there is an opportunity, if there are the players there who can help us leap forward then we will evaluate things.

“Llorente? We are waiting and watching the evolution of the situation, but we could pursue other contacts.

“Van Persie? Difficult to track. Arsenal does not want to lose him easily, despite the player being almost out of contract, they demand a high figure.

“Matri? He is not on the list of outgoing players, we consider him in all effects to be a Juventus player. Quagliarella? He’s a part of our project.

“Dzeko? His situation is always susceptible to change and he is certainly an important player, but he has a high price.

“These situations can evolve from morning to night.”

“I think it is unfortunate for Zeman to make such a bad statement. He himself says he does not read the papers, so you cannot give his words meaning. I hope that the President of the Italian Coaches’ Association takes a position on this matter.”
