Tottenham Hotspur look set to hold on to Fernando Llorente in the current transfer window.

The Spanish striker has been linked with a return to Spain with former club Atletico Madrid and Barcelona said to be interested in his services (Metro).

Spurs are sweating over the results of Harry Kane’s scan after the striker suffered an ankle injury in the closing moments of the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Wembley.

With Heung-min Son potentially set to miss up to the next five matches due to South Korea’s involvement in the Asian Cup which is currently taking place in the United Arab Emirates.

The potential absence of Kane, along with Son has led to Spurs to take the World Cup winner off the transfer market (Standard) due to the current shortage of attacking options available to Mauricio Pochettino.

Llorente is said to earn an eye-watering £100,000 a week at Spurs, with his contract set to expire in the summer.
