The agent of Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente Carlos Arino Bajo has revealed that his client is likely to join a Premier League club this summer.
The highly rated forward broke off contract renewal talks earlier this month and informed the clubs chiefs that he would like to leave San Mames this summer.
He has since been linked with just about every top club in Europe, including several Premier League giants.
The player’s representative has now moved to confirm reports that Llorente is nearing a switch to English Premier League.
“Tomorrow Llorente will speak about his destination,” agent Carlos Arino Bajo said to Daily Telegraph.”It is very, very possible that he will decide to go to the Premier League.
”I don’t know the club at the moment but there are two clubs. One is in London and one is in Manchester.”
Fernando Llorente has less than a year left on his deal at San Mames, but Athletic chiefs are adamant that the player can only leave if a club match his €36 million release clause.
The 27-year-old has spent his entire club with los Leones, and has scored 80 goals in 237 La Liga games.
