Athletic Bilbao midfielder Carlos Gurpegi is happy Fernando Llorente is in talks with Juventus.

Llorente is speaking with Serie A champions Juventus, and Gurpegi for one is looking forward to drawing a line under the matter and focusing on the team's bid to recover from a poor first half to the season.

He said in Marca: "Perhaps the drama will end. It is good for everyone that there will be calm and between us all we can think only about Athletic, which is where we are and who we all want to be as high in the table as possible.

"We need to try to achieve the consistency that we have not had this season and to try and finish the season well. We have a debt with our fans and perhaps in June we can pay it off."
