Moving on a free from Athletic Bilbao to Juventus back in 2013, Fernando Llorente wasn’t part of Max Allegri’s plans last season and was swiftly shipped off to Sevilla after both club and player agreed to terminate his contract early.
Returning to his home country, the 31-year-old ended up being used mostly as an impact substitute by Unai Emery, and the tall striker made 38 appearances in all competitions, scoring seven goals and picking up five assists in the process.
However, Sport in Spain say he isn’t expected to linger there long as two clubs have reportedly made their interest known in Real Sociedad and Everton.
The Spanish side are said to have been in contact with the former Spain international for a few weeks now, but things haven’t exactly moved forward as expected.
As for Everton, they’ve only just enquired about Llorente’s availability, and Sport make it clear that if the Merseyside club turn their interest into something more sincere, the striker could very well start his Premier League adventure next season.
Considering Sport started the article by stating Fernando Llorente was on loan at Sevilla from Juventus last season, this might not be one to remember.
