Juve at ´advanced stage´ with Llorente

20 January 2013 14:09

Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta has admitted the club are in discussions to sign Athletic Bilbao forward Fernando Llorente.

The Euro 2012 winner has long been linked with a move to Turin after declaring he would not be renewing his contract with Marcelo Bielsa's men, with the Basque side having given Juventus permission to offer their 27-year-old striker a deal.

"We are always looking to the future and monitoring players, which includes Llorente, who is out of contract," Marotta told assembled reporters.

"We are at an advanced stage."

Juve's highly-rated Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal has also been the subject of reported interest from Germany and Spain recently, although the director was quick to rule out rumours of a sale.

"It's no surprise that Bayern want Vidal, but there have been no offers. We are, in any case, more accustomed to buying than selling," he said.
