Speculation Fernando Llorente will sign for Juventus is intensifying after he told Athletic Bilbao he wanted to leave.

Juventus are looking to sign a forward, and Jose Urrutia, the Bilbao President, revealed the player wants to leave with one year remaining on his contract.

"He and his agent informed us that his decision was that he would not extend his contract," Urrutia said. "Essentially there was no economic reason and what had the most weight was choosing to take part in a different type of competition with more chances of success."
