Arsenal will look to bring in Juventus forward Fernando Llorente as Arsene Wenger sets about strengthen his Gunners attack according to the Daily Mirror.

Wenger currently overly relies on French international Oliver Giroud, with both Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott being used primarily in wide attacking roles and with both suffering with injury concerns, and this source believes the North London club could move for Spaniard Fernando Llorente, most likely in a loan move in January.

The experienced 28 year old has started just two of Juventus’s opening seven Serie A fixtures and has barely had a ‘look-in’ when it comes to Champions League action and that lack of first team football could threaten his position with the Spanish national team set-up, all the more important given the World Cup on the horizon.

Llorente moved to Juventus on a free transfer after he ran down his Athletic Bilbao contract and would have hoped to play a more prominent role in Antonio Conte’s plans.

Prior to his move to Turin Llorente played 333 games for Athletic Bilbao and scored 118 goals and the lanky forward has also collected 22 Spanish national team caps.
