Arsenal are allegedly hoping to take Juventus striker Fernando Llorente on loan when the transfer window reopens.

Arsenal have been linked with a January move for Juventus striker Fernando Llorente.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is considering taking the Spaniard on loan to boost his attacking options, according to The Mirror.

Olivier Giroud is the only senior traditional striker fit at the Emirates Stadium, and Wenger is said to be seeking a stop-gap solution in the New Year.

Arsenal are reportedly still keeping tabs on Liverpool forward Luis Suarez, but are not optimistic about securing his signature.

Llorente has struggled to find first-team football at Juventus since joining to club from Athletic Bilbao in the summer, sitting behind Carlos Tevez in the pecking order.
