Llorente not interested in English links

Fernando Llorente

Juventus striker Fernando Llorente has been linked with Manchester City and Arsenal, but the Spaniard insists he's content in Italy.

Having won his first Serie A title with Juventus, Spanish international Fernando Llorente seems settled in Turin despite links to English sides.

Llorente has regularly featured on Arsenal's radar and has also been watched carefully by Manchester City during the current campaign.

Any scouts who have watched Llorente will have been impressed after a season that saw him find the net 15 times and form a deadly strike partnership with ex-Man City man Carlos Tevez.

However, Llorente didn't seem enthusiastic about the idea of playing in the Premier League when quizzed on the possibility by ll Secolo XIX.

"They've noticed in England that I'm a good player? I want to stay here and continue to win. My future is called Juventus," Llorente declared.

It has been widely reported that Juventus boss Antonio Conte could leave in spite of delivering three titles in a row, which could be a big loss for the Old Lady.

"Conte is crazily important," Llorente said. "The three Scudetti are above all his achievement.

"Now we want a fourth title. It will be difficult but nobody scares us because we are Juventus."

Despite Juventus' domestic glory, the campaign ended in somewhat muted fashion after they were beaten in the Europa League semi-final by Benfica, missing out on a final in their own Juventus Stadium.

Juventus' only remaining target for the season is trying to reach 100 points in Serie A which they will achieve if they can pick up four points from their remaining two games, including a tough match against second-placed Roma.
