‘Llorente prefers English switch’

Juventus target Fernando Llorente is reportedly more interested in a transfer to England rather than Italy.

The striker is set to leave present side Athletic Bilbao on a free in the summer once his contract expires in June 2013.

Juve have been tracking the 27-year-old since last summer, but a report in Marca claims that the centre-forward believes his characteristics are better suited to the Premier League.

The likes of Arsenal and Tottenham have been linked with the Spanish international who is free to talk to other clubs from January 1.
