The 29 year old Spanish international moved to Turin on a free transfer deal back in July 2013 and scored 18 goals in his debut campaign but has been less successful this season.

The lanky striker has as a result recently seen youngster Alvaro Morata ease ahead of him in the Juventus pecking order, with Carlos Tevez a first team regular, and as such the former Athletic Bilbao man may now be considering his options.
