According to a report in the Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur could re-sign Fernando Llorente after the striker’s contract with the club ran out.
It is suggested that Spurs have now offered Llorente a one year contract on reduced terms.
The striker, who is now a free agent, saw his £100,000-a-week Spurs contract expire on the 30th of June but he is yet to be snapped up by any club despite being linked with a move to Tottenham’s London rivals, West Ham United (Daily Star).
The Spaniard is currently not part of the club’s pre-season tour of Singapore and Shanghai.
The report in the Evening Standard claims that Serie A side Fiorentina are also monitoring the former Juventus man.
The former Spanish international, stepped up when it counted last season in the absence of Harry Kane and put in some vital performances which helped his side reach the final of the Champions League.

It was always going to be difficult for the club to sign a talented striker as few players will be willing to play second fiddle to Harry Kane.
If Spurs cannot land their primary targets this summer, then it makes sense to offer Llorente one more year and reassess the situation next summer.
