Fernando Llorente insists that he is "physically" ready to hit the ground running at Juventus.

New Juventus striker Fernando Llorente has insisted that he is in the right physical condition to begin next season with the Italian club.

The 28-year-old, who agreed to join Juve in January, started just four league games for Athletic Bilbao last season due to a rift with the club.

However, the Spanish striker told reporters at his official unveiling on Tuesday that there should be no concern about his fitness.

"Physically I feel very well. I have worked very hard during my holidays and now I am ready to work even harder in the future," he said.

"Over the last two years I have still done a lot of physical training even when I have played much less. I know Italian football is very difficult, but I am sure I will be able to do well."

Llorente will form a new-look attacking partnership with Carlos Tevez next season.
