Former Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente is excited about his move to Juventus.

Llorente will arrive next month on a Bosman transfer when his contract expires, having agreed terms back in January.

"They are one of the best teams in Europe and the best in Italy," Spanish international Llorente told Marca.

"I'm lucky to be able to play for a team like that. I'm really looking forward to entering a new phase.

"Why Juve? Because they have impressed me ever since they expressed an interest. It's a really big club, comparable to Real Madrid and Barcelona. It's as though I've always known it was my team."
