Fernando Llorente has said he is planning to stay at Juventus and knows nothing about reported interest from Liverpool and Monaco.

Llorente found himself competing for playing time with Carlos Tevez and Alvaro Morata last season as Juve won Serie A and the Coppa Italia as well as reaching the Champions League final.

Although Tevez appears set to join Boca Juniors this summer, the Italian champions has already bolstered their attacking options with deals to sign Paulo Dybala from Palermo and Mario Mandzukic from Atletico Madrid, but Llorente has no plans to move on.

The Spain international said “My intention right now is to stay.

“I need to talk with the club, and see what they say too. For sure there are many changes, but let’s hope we can continue to do as well as we have been doing in recent years. If Tevez does leave, I will be sorry as he is a great man and a great striker.”

Liverpool, which had expressed an interest in signing Llorente before he left Athletic Bilbao, and Monaco have been linked.
