Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente admits he will consider his options in January, putting a host of Premier League clubs on alert.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham are all keen on the Spanish international who is out of contract next summer and is therefore free to talk with other clubs in January.

Llorente, speaking after a 3-3 draw with Espanyol in which he scored, said: "Now I am only thinking about helping the team and I will try to make things go as well as last year.

"I've been at Athletic for many years and always will be Athletic - although one day I will play for another team.

"It has been a bumpy and hard summer and I've had to make tough decisions."

Llorente was reportedly close to sealing a move to Juventus in the summer and it is thought the Serie A giants will try to resurrect the deal.

But the hitman denies his future has already been decided.

He said: "You never know how things will turn out and I had to go through difficult times.

"In January I am free to negotiate my future, but I want to be focused to try to help the team.

"But it is not decided that my future is at Juventus."
