Spaniard rules out Premier League move amid Arsenal rumours

Fernando Llorente

Juventus striker Fernando Llorente has ruled out the possibility of him leaving the Serie A club in the January transfer window, as reported by Sky Sports.

The former Ahtletic Bilbao forward has been rumoured to have been told he can leave Turin after less than six months in Italy.

Llorente initially struggled to break into the Old Lady side but starting and scoring against Real Madrid in midweek will have endeared him to the passionate fans.

Arsenal had been heavily linked with a move for the Spanish international who is still hopeful of going to the World Cup in Brazil next summer.

Tottenham and Newcastle are also keen on the powerful striker, but Llorente has dismissed any talk of him leaving Juventus.

“I’ve not been asked to leave,” he told Radiogaceta de los Deportes.

“What is being written in the papers is false. I have the complete faith of everyone at Juventus.

“It was not easy for me to adapt to the movement and play of the team, but I’m slowly managing to do what the boss wants.

“Once I have completely settled then everything will go well.”
