Barcelona sports chief Txiki Beguiristain is ready to move for Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente. Barca intend to sign a quality striker in the summer, even if Samuel Eto'o agrees terms over a new contract, and Sport says Llorente is top of their shopping list.

The Spain international's buyout clause is £28 million and Beguiristain hasn't ruled out paying top price for the prolific forward.
