Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente has played down the prospect of signing a pre-contract next month.

Llorente is wanted by Arsenal and Liverpool.

"Starting in January, I can sign with any team, but that does not worry me," the forward told reporters at a football tournament in Tenerife.

"The only thing that worries me is being fit to help my team.

"I will try to do my best from here to the end of the season. I would not wish to be in the situation I'm going through now with my club, things happen and you have to accept [that].”
