Inter Milan have made out-of-contract Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente a standby target should they fail to land Roma’s Edin Dzeko. (Daily Mail)

The Italian side still have their sights firmly locked on Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku in a deal which could be worth up to £65m. (Guardian)

Antonio Conte has also made Edin Dzeko one of his transfer targets for this summer’s transfer window but it is reported Roma are not willing to allow the Bosnian to leave. (Calcio Mercato)

The now assumed former Tottenham striker ran out-of-contract at the end at the beginning of the month but Spurs have not made an announcement about the Spaniard’s departure.

Llorente was included in Tottenham’s release list last month but through Premier League technicalities that does not mean Spurs will not offer the 34-year-old a new contract. (Football.London)

The 34-year-old played a huge role in Tottenham’s campaign last season with a vital goal in the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City along with playing a pivotal part in our second half comeback against Ajax in the semi-final.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Llorente certainly earned his keep last season with some huge moments for Spurs – especially towards the latter end of the season. Although it would not be the end of the world to lose him, it could be difficult to find someone willing to wait amongst the substitutes for Harry Kane’s next injury.

  1. Probably as an act of kindness on Fernando’s part; his brother (Chus) has been acting as his agent. Chus has turned out to be an obnoxious and mouthy little gutter snipe who has been bad mouthing and insulting Spurs and their management for months. I certainly don’t blame anyone at Tottenham for not wanting to deal with that little weasel. Perhaps as the transfer window advances; if Chus has no success finding a satisfactory contract for Fernando; Tottenham will offer to sign him for another year with the proviso that Chus disappears.
