Spurs hoping for Llorente u-turn

19th July 2019, 18:51 by Tom Hill

Tottenham have offered Fernando Llorente another short-term deal to stay in north London, according to reports in the English media.

The 34-year-old is currently a free agent after his deal expired at the end of last month but Mauricio Pochettino is determined to keep hold of him.

Pochettino needs extra cover for Harry Kane, considering his injury problems over the last 18 months.

Kane has struggled with ankle injuries in recent months and Llorente filled the void to help Spurs reach the Champions League final.

Reports suggest Spurs have offered him a 12-month deal, but on reduced terms compared to his last contract.

The Spaniard was reportedly paid £100,000-a-week, but he must now decide if he wants to head back to England or pursue a new challenge.

Fiorentina are interested in his services and Llorente has experience of playing in Italy.

The Pamplona-born forward scored 23 goals for Juventus during a two-year spell between 2013 and 2015.
