Arsenal are considering a move for Juventus striker Fernando Llorente in the summer, as per Metro reports.
Arsenal were linked with the Spanish striker prior to his move to Juventus from Athletic Bilbao back in 2013.
The 29-year-old has been a regular player for the Serie A giants but is not at his best this season, he has only scored four goals in 20 Serie A appearances so far this term.
With the summer signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, Llorente in likely to leave Turin at the end of the season.
The reports revealed earlier today that the Gunners are keeping strong tabs on the 6foot 5in striker. The Gunners are planning to offer him £63,000-a-week wages.
Arsenal current striking options include Olivier Giroud who has not been impressive, while summer signing Danny Welbeck is also yet to make a fine name in the new red jersey.
The North London side have not signed any goal machine since the departure of Robin van Persie to Manchester United. They have been struggling in front of goals, however the attacking players including Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez are more effective than the strikers.
Llorente would be a great addition despite of his age, he will turn 30 next week. Columnist: Stevan Jones
