Barcelona are in contact with representatives of Juventus centre-forward Fernando Llorente.

The Spain international only moved to Turin in the summer from Athletic Bilbao, but has struggled to adapt to life in Italy.

Sport says Barca have been in touch about the prospect of returning to Spain in January.

Barca coach Tata Martino would like the option of a physical centre-forward presence to call on and has discussed Llorente's signing with directors.
