Valencia are targeting Fernando Llorente as a possible signing this summer, according to Fichajes.com.
The Spanish transfer news website reports the La Liga club have their eyes on seven different strikers, with Iago Aspas, Carlos Bacca, Eder, Kevin Gameiro, Alessane Plea and Angel Rodriguez also being looked at.
It’s fair to say that Fernando did not make the impact that was expected of him during his first season at the club, and he has been widely tipped to depart just a year after arriving from Swansea.
With the player now being 33, and the fact that he scored just once in the Premier League last campaign, we can’t expect to get much of the £12m we paid for the Spaniard back.
Athletic Bilbao are also reportedly interested in the forward, and Llorente has expressed a desire to return to his former club in the past. The presence of Valencia in the race could allow us to get a higher transfer fee, but we shall see.
