Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente has resisted interest from England.

Llorente wants to leave Bilbao this month with less than a year to run on his contract.

Gazzetta dello Sport says the 27-year-old has rejected a switch to England, where Arsenal were interested after losing Bianconeri target Robin Van Persie to Manchester United.
