Report: Five European clubs interested in Tottenham star

Five clubs from across Europe are keen to snap up Fernando Llorente, with it now looking highly likely he will leave Tottenham Hotspur.

The veteran Spaniard’s contract officially expires on June 30, and the club’s lack of movement over an extension would suggest they are ready to let him leave.

Llorente signed for Tottenham from Swansea City in 2017 for £12.1 million (Sky Sports), and has essentially been backup for Harry Kane the whole time.

The former Athletic Bilbao star has never truly convinced for the Lilywhites, although he was at times a handful for defences when he came on as a substitute.

According to A Bola, Italian giants Inter and AC Milan are both keen on the striker, as are AS Roma, Galatasaray and old club Athletic.

 

TBR’s view

With time ticking on it very much looks as though Spurs are ready to move on from Llorente, which would be the right decision.

The star has always given his all, but struggled to score goals for the club.

In his two years in north London he has only managed 13 goals in 66 appearances.

Mauricio Pochettino used him very sparingly which meant he could never really build up momentum.

He’ll make for a great free signing for one of the reportedly interested clubs, but Spurs should be seeking to replace him with someone who can compete with Kane as well as cover.
