Arsenal are running out of options this month as Juventus striker Fernando Llorente has reportedly agreed terms with Sevilla.
According to Cadena Cope, the 30-year-old has agreed to a deal with Sevilla in principle, as the club continue to strengthen their squad ahead of their Champions League campaign getting underway.

Following the arrivals of Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala, Llorente is seen as surplus to requirements in Turin now and will want to move on and find first-team football elsewhere.
Although he has reportedly agreed on terms, it is noted that the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement on a transfer fee with Sevilla hoping that Juve reduce their €12m asking price, according to Football Italia.
It is claimed that the La Liga outfit are willing to offer €8m, and given that the Italian giants signed the striker on a free in 2013, they will likely be content with any profit that they make.
However, it is another blow for the Gunners who have reportedly been monitoring Llorente’s situation in Turin, and now face the prospect of missing out.
Arsene Wenger has been under pressure to sign another striker before the window closes, with Karim Benzema reportedly at the top of his list.
If he is unable to take the Frenchman to the Emirates, then he may find himself short of options elsewhere as he looks at alternatives.
