Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente has spoken publically about his interest in leaving the club this summer.

The Spanish international joined Spurs from fellow Premier League outfit Swansea City in August 2017 for a reported fee of £12.1million on a two-year deal and has failed to make an impact since his switch.

Llorente, 33, has made 22 appearances for Spurs, with 19 of those coming from the substitutes bench and has been unable to help Harry Kane with the burden of scoring goals.

A move to his homeland is something which Llorente is open to, with a return to former club Athletic Bilbao close to the forward’s heart.

The player came through the ranks at the club and scored 85 goals in 262 appearances for Bilbao’s first team.

He was quoted by Marca as saying: “Athletic Club are my home and if they make an offer, a return could happen. I enjoyed many wonderful moments at the club that I will never forget and Athletic will always hold a special place in my heart.

“If they do make me a proposal to come back, then I would have to think about it and yes, maybe it could happen.”
