Tottenham are in search of strikers to improve their attacking line and provide decent backup to star forward Harry Kane.
More importantly, the North Londoners must hold onto the England international as interest from Manchester United is becoming stronger.
Spurs have been linked with youngsters like Anthony Martial and Timo Werner to support Kane but according to latest reports, they are now linked to sign an experienced forward.
Juventus star and Spanish international Fernando Llorente is deemed surplus to requirements and is likely to be sold this summer.
According to Spanish source Fichajes, Spanish clubs like Valencia, Sevilla, Atletico Madrid and even Real Madrid are interested in signing Llorente. However, the leading offer that has got more chance of success is sent by Tottenham Hotspur.
The 30 year old striker featured in 45 games for the Italian champions last season, scored 9 goals and provided 4 assists. However, Morata and Tevez have been the ones preferred.
Fichajes claim that Juve’s asking price is €15million for the Llorente but it can be lowered to €9m if Spurs are willing to sell Lamela to Old Lady as well.
The major talking point with Llorente is that he cannot be played as a secondary striker, nor will he want to warm the bench at Spurs because that is what he did at Juventus. Fernando has quality and manager Pochettino should look for a two striker system if Spurs do sign him.
