Fernando Llorente: Attracting interest from a couple of Premier League clubs
Fernando Llorente's agent has admitted the Athletic Bilbao ace could move to the Premier League before the close of the transfer window.
The Spain international seems set to leave Bilbao after turning down a new deal at the Basque outfit.
Juventus are thought to be leading the chase for Llorente having already made several bids for the giant striker's services.
However, the likes of Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City have all been credited with an interest in the 27-year-old.
Llorente's representative, Carlos Arino Bajo, claims two Premier League clubs - one from London and one from Manchester - have expressed an interest in signing the player.
"Tomorrow [Wednesday] Llorente will speak to his destination," Arino Bajo told the Daily Telegraph. "It is very, very possible he will decide to go to the Premier League.
"I don't know the [choice of] club at the moment but there are two [interested] clubs. One is in London, and one is in Manchester."
