Italian champions Juventus could pick up Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente in January for as little as €6m.
That is according to the Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday who are highlighting the club’s need for a new striker after the 3-1 reverse to Inter on Saturday.
The Old Lady targeted the 27-year-old in the summer, but the Spanish club’s asking price was deemed as excessive.
However, the Bianconeri could get their hands on him at the start of 2013 at a cut-price rate – of around €6-7m – given his contract situation.
The Spanish international is only tied to his current club until June 2013, which means Bilbao may cash in on him rather than lose him on a Bosman in the summer.
