Llorente: I’m staying at Juventus

The 29-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League after just one season at the club, but insists his future remains in Turin
Juventus striker Fernando Llorente has dismissed speculation linking him with a move away from the club.

The Spain striker, who joined from Athletic Bilbao last summer on a free transfer, recovered from a difficult start in Italy to hit 16 goals in 34 Serie A appearances as Juve won a third straight Serie A title.

But despite rumours the Old Lady are ready to offload the 29-year-old, who was left out of Vicente Del Bosque’s World Cup squad, Llorente says he is not considering a move away from Turin.

“My future? It is with Juventus and I feel very happy here,” he told Sky Italia.

“I have had a quiet break. I'm glad to be here and I’m not thinking of anything else.”

Llorente has three years to run on his current contract but has been linked with a move to the Premier League as Juve continue their pursuit of Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez.
