Real Sociedad eyeing Napoli striker Fernando Llorente

Ambitious Real Sociedad are eyeing Napoli striker Fernando Llorente.

AS says the veteran former Athletic Bilbao striker could return to LaLiga and become teammates with David Silva.

The 35-year-old is under contract with Napoli until June 2021, but made just 24 competitive appearances, scoring four goals.

His last game for the Partenopei was in January and he was even taken off the Serie A squad list after the lockdown to make way for Kevin Malcuit.

Napoli could release Llorente from his contract to help smooth negotiations.
