Real Madrid are hoping to sign Juventus striker Fernando Llorente.

The 30-year-old Spanish international joined the Bianconeri in the summer of 2013, going on to score 23 goals in 65 appearances in Serie A, but has seen less playing time with the introduction of Alvaro Morata last season

According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Real Madrid head coach Rafael Benitez believes his Real Madrid’s squad is missing a strong forward and he has targeted Llorente as his number one choice.

Benitez will be hopeful of a deal with Juventus asking for €15 million for the Spanish international.

Juventus’ attack has now undergone somewhat of a revolution this summer with the arrivals of Mario Mandzukic, Paulo Dybala and Simone Zaza, on the back of the departures of Carlos Tevez and Alessandro Matri, and it now seems soon another player could leave Juventus’ forward line.
