Sevilla look increasingly unlikely to land Juventus forward Fernando Llorente as the Spanish outfit cannot afford to meet the demands of the player.

Llorente has long been linked with a move away from the Bianconeri this summer and the club have a set a €12 million asking price for the 30-year-old. Sevilla are just the latest side to have been keen on the Juventus number 14, following the likes of Arsenal and Monaco but now seem set to turn their attentions elsewhere.

Despite all the ruours no contact was ever made between the Rojiblancos and Juventus for Llorente, according to Marca, however the striker’s wage demands would have been too high for the Europa League Champions. Instead, the club will seek to re-sign Alvaro Negredo from Valencia, although this too will be highly unlikely due to the numbers involved.

The former Athletic Club forward enjoyed a successful first season in Serie A, scoring 16 goals but found the following season more tricky, registering just seven league goals.
