Juve Swoon Over Tevez & Llorente

Last season, Juventus had a trio of strikers who veered between ‘pretty good’ and ‘barely noticeable’.

Alessandro Matri and Sebastian Giovinco are both Italy squad members, and Mirko Vucinic is the skipper of Montenegro.

But while those three were good enough to help power The Old Lady to consecutive Serie A titles, they hardly sent shivers through Europe.

Next season however, the Italian champions promise to be an entirely more deadly prospect, having bolstered their frontline with two strikers of genuine quality and complimentary characteristics.

Spanish international centre-forward, Fernando Llorente, has finally arrived in Turin after his protracted and political exit from Athletic Bilbao.

And bustling terrier Carlos Tevez has signed in a cut-price deal from Juventus, which could be the signing of the season if he just behaves himself.

Juve’s attack suddenly has a look of grit and craft about it, and Llorente says he is itching to work on his partnership with his new Argentine colleague.

“I’m really pleased to be here and to play with Tevez,” he told reporters.

His new team-mate, defender Leonardo Bonucci, says he and the rest of the squad are also looking forward to the continental damage the new strikers can cause.

“Tevez and Llorente are two really nice presents from (president Andrea) Agnelli,” Bonucci told Sky Italia.

“Juve’s aim is not only going to be confirming ourselves for the third year in a row in Italy, but achieving something big in Europe too.”
