Juventus coach Conte confirms he wants Athletic Bilbao's Llorente

Juventus coach Antonio Conte admits they're keen to sign Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente.

Conte admitted he was keen to pursue a deal, especially as the striker would not command a transfer fee.

"He [Llorente] did very well at Athletic Bilbao and in the current economic climate if there is a chance to take a great player at no cost, it is right to do it," said the 43-year-old.

"18 months ago Llorente would not even take us into consideration but today, yes, because we have a certain appeal again."
