Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham could all be ready to pounce as Fernando Llorente is open to a January exit from Serie A giants Juventus, even though he only just joined the club this summer.

According to reports in the Daily Mirror, the Spanish international striker is unhappy at being behind Mirko Vucinic and fellow new arrival Carlos Tevez in Antonio Conte’s first-team plans this season, and may look to seal a move elsewhere.

The 28-year-old was a highly impressive performer for former club Athletic Bilbao in his days in La Liga, scoring 118 goals in 333 appearances for the Basque side, and his displays saw him attract plenty of attention from Premier League sides before he eventually sealed a switch to Serie A.

However, things haven’t gone to plan for Llorente so far in Italy, and a move to England could be on the cards again this January when the transfer window re-opens, with all three of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham somewhat lacking in options upfront at the moment.

The London trio were all linked with some big-name strikers during the summer, and though Chelsea managed to sign Samuel Eto’o and Spurs brought in Roberto Soldado, they are still lacking in backup players. Arsenal, meanwhile, are heavily reliant on the in-form Olivier Giroud, having sold squad members Marouane Chamakh and Gervinho.
