Spaniard wants to move to Premier League in January.

Athletic Bilbao forward Fernando Llorente is desperate to move to England in January, according to a report in Spanish daily AS.

Llorente has just 10 months remaining on his current deal at the Basque club and has endured a torrid time since rejecting a new deal this summer, facing jeers from his own supporters this season.

The 27-year-old is now likely to be sold for a cut-price fee when the transfer window reopens in the new year with Arsenal, Liverpool, Man City and Spurs are all keen on Llorente.

Tottenham reportedly had a bid for Llorente accepted on deadline day, while City were also understood to be keen on the Spain international but could not facilitate the move after failing to offload Edin Dzeko and Mario Balotelli.

The £15m-rated striker is thought to be desperate to play Champions League football, which leaves City and Arsenal in the driving seat for his signature.
