Arsenal keen on Llorente loan deal

Arsenal are considering a loan move for Juventus striker Fernando Llorente, the Mail Online understands.

The Gunners currently sit on top of the Premier League with sixteen points taken from twenty-one available, but Wenger remains keen on strengthening his squad.

The Frenchman currently has Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner as his only available strikers, with Lukas Podolski and Yaya Sanogo currently side-lined through injury.

Llorente, who only moved to the Serie A champions in the summer, has scored once in four appearances for the Old Lady but he is yet to complete a full ninety minutes in the league.

The 28 year old is keen to be part of Spain’s World Cup party for next summer, and knows that he may need to move on to secure his place on the plane.

Meanwhile, the Metro understand that Manchester United failed in an attempt to sign Mesut Ozil this summer.

Reports in the Manchester Evening News have suggested that David Moyes tried of gazump Arsenal’s offer of £42.4m for the Germany international as the clock ticked down on transfer deadline day.

The Premier League champions eventually secured the services of Marouane Fellaini, who signed from Everton moments before the window closed.
