‘Benitez keen on Llorente’

Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez is reportedly eyeing up a transfer swoop for Juventus’ Fernando Llorente.

The 30-year-old has been linked with the likes of Milan and Tottenham Hotspur this summer, but according to Spanish outlet La Sexta Los Blancos have now also entered the race.

With Mario Mandzukic having recently arrived at the Italian champions to partner Alvaro Morata, the Spanish international may not get regular game time should he remain at Juventus Stadium.

Benitez is said to be keen on adding to his forward options by recruiting an out and out number nine, and has identified Llorente as his primary target for this role.
