Bilbao ace Llorente targets Premier League

Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente has admitted he has plans to play in the Premier League.

The 27-year old has revealed that fellow Spaniards Fernando Torres and Xabi Alonso have recommended he play in England's top flight because the fans give so much support to the players.

"I might end up playing in England, who knows? At the moment I'm at Athletic Bilbao, but who knows later," Llorente said.

"Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres have told me about the immense respect that the fans have for their players there."
