Real Madrid are very interested in signing Fernando Spanish striker Fernando Llorente from Juventus, according to AS.
Los Blancos are in desperate need of attacking reinforcements seeing as Javier Hernandez has returned to Manchester United and Rafael Benitez is eager to lure the former Athletic Bilbao star to Santiago Bernabeu.
The experienced tactician likes the fact that Llorente has some qualities that none of his current strikers possess, and the fact he would offer a new dimension to Real attack.
And with Juventus looking to offload the 30-year-old after signing Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala, chances are the Spaniard will be available at a reasonable price.
Fernando Llorente has fared pretty well ever since he joined Juventus on a free transfer from Athletic Bilbao, helping the Bianconeri win third and fourth consecutive league trophy.
The towering striker notched 16 goals in 34 league outings during his first season, before netting 7 league goals last term.
