Arsenal determined to land Marcos Llorente

Marcos Llorente wanted at Arsenal

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is eager to pursue the services of Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente. The 21-year-old is currently playing his trade for Alaves on a season-long loan from Real Madrid.

According to Don Balon, the Gunners will be lining up an offer for the youngster once he returns to his parent side in the summer.

Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla has had his injury issues since the start of last season, and this has urged the club to recruit a new midfielder, who could remain at the club for the long-term.

Llorente is regarded as one among the finest talents to have evolved from Los Blancos' academy, and the Gunners would be willing to pay in excess of £30m to pursue his signature next season.

The Spain Under-21 international has appeared in 11 outings for newcomers Alaves this season.
