The prolific Spanish striker Fernando Llorente has been instrumental in helping Athletico Bilbao overachieve this season by reaching the Finals of the Europa League and the Copa Del Rey, which has made many Premiership teams step up and take notice.
Both Arsenal and Tottenham have been strongly linked wth a move for the giant 27 year-old after he managed to knock in 29 goals in 53 appearances for Bilbao this season, and he has told reporters that he is tempted by a move to the Premier League.
Llorente said: “I might end up playing in England, who knows? At the moment I’m at Athletic Bilbao, but who knows later.
“Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres have told me about the immense respect that the fans have for their players there.”
Llorente has already scored seven goals for Spain and with David Villa injured he could get a big chance to impress further at the up-coming Euros. If Robin Van Persie finally decides to leave the Emirates then surely Llorente would be a more than able replacement?
