Juventus striker Fernando Llorente denies exit plans with Tottenham Hotspur interested
3:52pm Monday 23rd September 2013 in Spurs
Fernando Llorente has denied he is considering quitting Juventus just months after joining the Turin club from Athletic Bilbao in the summer.
The Spaniard has suffered a slow start to the season, only getting onto the pitch for a few minutes as a late substitute prior to his first start at Hellas Verona on Saturday – leading to rumours that he might be interested in moving to the Premier League, with Spurs still interested after being linked with the striker in the summer.
However, after scoring his first goal for the club in the 2-1 victory in Verona, Llorente insisted that he was happy where he was.
He told the club’s official website: "I normally take a bit of time to hit form and knew I’d have to work a great deal because I pretty much missed the whole of last season.
He continued: "Adapting to a new environment is never an easy task for anyone. I’m getting on great here and feel the coach has faith in me, but I know I need to keep working to get back into peak condition."
