Fernando Llorente will reportedly cost £28m if he is to leave Athletic Bilbao this summer.

Athletic Bilbao's president has opened the door for Fernando Llorenete's exit from the club after admitting that the striker doesn't want to stay at the San Mames.

The Spaniard has informed Jose Urrutia that he will not sign a new contract and a number of clubs, including Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, have been linked with a bid for the striker.

Urrutia told El Confidencial: "If the player does not really want to be at this club, [someone] has to pay his buyout clause."

The statement from Urruita means that Llorente could cost interested parties £28m.

Juventus have recently claimed that they are in talks with the 27-year-old.
