Daily Telegraph.

A host of Premier League clubs including Arsenal are believed to be keen, and are free to discuss terms with the forward next month.

The 27-year-old has fallen out of favour in Spain after attempting to force a move away from Bilbao during the summer.

His current contract is set to expire at the end of the season and he announced in a press conference that once his deal is finished he will be moving on:

“I am going to leave on June 30,

“I want to develop as a player and try something new.”

He went on to claim that his decision is not motivated by the financial benefits of joining a big club:

“It isn’t about money because the offer the club made was irresistible. The media have not helped with the negotiations and it is one of the things that has generated the bad atmosphere around me out on the pitch.

“This has encouraged me not to renew my contract; this and many other things.

“I took the decision when I went out for the first Europa League game at San Mames (in August).

Llorente also hit back at rumours that he has acted in an unprofessional manner to force a transfer:

“Most of what has come out in the press is lies and this has turned people against me. This has meant when I run out on to the pitch people whistle at me.

“There is a sector of the crowd who do not want me but I feel loved by the majority.”
