Liverpool wants Llorente

Liverpool are after Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente, but know they have to have a deal in place to sell not wanted Andy Carroll by the close of the transfer window tomorrow night.

The Spanish striker has been frozen out by his club, and is being forced to train with the reserves since refusing to sign a new contract.

With only one year remaining on his old contract, and making it known that he wants to leave there is no way he will still be at Bilbao come Saturday.

Juventus are in need of a striker, and also Manchester City and Tottenham showing interest with only his £30 million buy-out-clause being the reason that a deal been done already.

Llorente’s teammate Javi Martinez was sold yesterday in a record breaking £32 million to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munch, which makes it look almost certain that the Basque side are ready to let Llorente go also.

My money is on a deal with Juventus, but that all depends on whether the Italinal’s sign Berbatov from Manchester United or not.

A very exciting couple of days lie ahead for the 27-year-old world-class striker who would prove to be a goal scorer for which ever club can do the deal.
