Juventus midfielder Vidal: Llorente can do Ibra job

Arturo Vidal insists Juventus do not need PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Vidal says Athletic Bilbao ace Fernando Llorente, who is joining Juve on a Bosman next month, can do a similar job to the Swede.

"Yes, I've seen him play. He's a great striker, physically strong and good with his feet," Vidal told Tuttosport.

"No one in Italy (plays like him) ... I would say that he is one that plays like Ibrahimovic. Powerful, but knows how to play the ball."

Vidal also was asked about Juventus target Alexis Sanchez, the Barcelona winger.

He said of his Chile teammate: "He's strong and knows all about Juventus, he does not need to ask me anything."
