The Chilean midfielder believes that the powerful Athletic Bilbao attacker will prove to be a valuable addition for the Serie A champions when he joins in the summer

Arturo Vidal believes that Juventus do not need Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with Fernando Llorente set to join the club from Athletic Bilbao at the end of the season.

The Bianconeri confirmed the signing of the Spain international on a free transfer back in January but have since been linked with a move for the Paris Saint-Germain star.

But the Chilean midfielder is confident that the 28-year-old will be a success when he moves to Turin.

"I have seen Llorente play and he is a great striker. He is physically strong and excellent with the ball at his feet, too," Vidal was quoted as saying by Tuttosport.

"He is unlike any other attacker in Italy. I would say that he is a bit like Ibrahimovic.

"He is powerful, but knows how to use his feet..."

Llorente has scored just three times in La Liga this season, with Marcelo Bielsa having opted to bench him following his refusal to sign a new deal.
