Hellas Verona striker Luca Toni believes Fernando Llorente doesn't suit the tactics of Juventus coach Antonio Conte.

Llorente is being linked with a move away in January.

“Conte, on paper at least, prefers attackers with characteristics which are different to those of Llorente,” the former Bianconero striker told Tuttosport.

“He prefers strikers who play between themselves, who help out and are also good away from the goal.

“Saying that, I’m convinced that Juventus will spend a lot of time in the penalty areas of opponents and the Spaniard will be very useful.”
