Liverpool has apparently contacted Italian champions Juventus to ask about the availability of striker Fernando Llorente, with the tall Spaniard now deemed surplus to requirements in Turin following the arrival of Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala.
According to Italian newspaper Tuttosport, the Merseyside club is looking to do a deal, as is French Ligue 1 side Monaco who are believed to have already offered Juventus £10.6million for the 30-year-old striker.
Llorente is said to be keen on testing himself in the Premiership, but is playing down the talk of any move saying: “At the moment my intention is to remain at Juve. I have to talk to the club and see what they say to me.”
Tottenham is also said to be interested, but we think he may take the tax-free option and move to Monaco rather than see how he would make out in the Premiership.
