Llorente: No-one’s asked me to go

Fernando Llorente has reiterated his desire to stay at Juventus, as he rejects rumours of interest from Arsenal.

Speculation regarding the Spaniard has been on and off since a rumoured difficult start to life in Italy, but talk this week of a January bid from Arsenal has drawn his denial.

It was suggested that Juve were open to his sale, but the former Athletic Bilbao man sees otherwise.

“I’ve not been asked to leave,” Llorente commented to Radiogaceta de los Deportes this week.

“What is being written in the papers is false. I have the complete faith of everyone at Juventus.

“It was not easy for me to adapt to the movements and plays of the team, but I’m slowly managing to do what the boss wants.

“Once I have completely settled then everything will go well.”
