Juventus have entered the race for Duvan Zapata but will face competition from Napoli, QPR and West Ham.

Juventus also have another battle against Spurs for Christian Eriksen but it should not be as hard a fight as the North London team are in talks with Erik Lamela.

Llorente has said that it might take a while for him to adapt to life in Turin because the difference between Athletic Bilbao and Juventus is huge.
