Tottenham Hotspur finished their summer transfer window with four new recruits to the squad in North London.

Tanguy Ndombele arrived for a club record fee from Lyon while Jack Clarke, Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon all completed moves to Spurs.

There were also departures with the likes of Michel Vorm, Josh Onomah and Vincent Janssen all leaving the club, while one of the more stranger exits was that of Fernando Llorente.

The Spaniard’s contract expired shortly after the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool and there was no confirmation of his departure.

Football Insider report that Mauricio Pochettino was left furious with the club’s failure to secure the services of Llorente.

The former World Cup winner proved to be instrumental in Tottenham’s Champions League campaign after scoring the all-important goal against Manchester City along with an impressive second half performance against Ajax in the semi-final second leg.

The report claims that Spurs only tabled a one-year offer on reduced terms with the 34-year-old instead expected to complete a move to Napoli on a two-year contract.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Llorente was like a tree the wingers occasionally managed to bounce a ball in off. He had no way of following the regimen of fittness Poch demanded and when he was on the field he couldnt get back to defend like the others. I saw him as a giant weakness and am glad he has freed up the space for another.. preferably a younger player like Parrott.
