Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ‘unlikely’ to bring striker Fernando Llorente back to the club.
The Spaniard is now a free agent after running down his contract with Spurs and is currently training with the Sevilla B team in order to keep fit as he looks for a new club.
The London Evening Standard claim the north Londoners will not be tempted to offer fresh terms to the player, who made 66 appearances for the club during a two-year stint.
Lazio, Napoli, Roma and Fiorentina are all fighting for the 34-year-old, who wants wages of £70,000-a-week and a three-year contract according to Corriere dello Sport.
Some Spurs fans had hoped to see him back, and thought a return could be on the cards since the club never actually announced his departure.
Spurs not bringing back Llorente would not be the end of the world.
The Spaniard has his uses but he simply didn’t produce consistently during his two years at the club.
In his defence, it was hard for him due to the manager’s complete and utter faith in Harry Kane.
Llorente not returning would potentially allow for highly rated youngster Troy Parrott to come through and make his mark with the first-team.
