Juventus GM Beppe Marotta is giving little away over their Bosman deal for Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente.

Juve are believed to be on the verge of agreeing personal terms with the Spanish international who will be available on a Bosman from Athletic Bilbao in June.

"We are interested in Llorente," he told Radio 24. "I'm hopeful and optimistic that we can define everything, but he'll only arrive in the summer.

"For now we are looking at any opportunities to improve a squad that won the Scudetto - if any exist."
