Fernando Llorente’s career at Tottenham Hotspur got off to a slow start having found first team opportunities limited due to the form of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.
This season, the Spaniard has made the most of the chance to play and has popped up with some important goals during our Champions League campaign.
He scored the third goal against Borussia Dortmund in the round of sixteen tie at Wembley and scored the controversial ‘hip’ goal away to Manchester City to book the club’s place in the semi-final.
Despite not scoring against Ajax, his inclusion at half time proved to be pivotal in changing the fortune of the tie.
Llorente is out of contract at Spurs this summer with the club having missed the deadline to take up the option of extending his contract by a further twelve months (Daily Mail).
The Sun are now reporting that the 34-year-old’s availability on a free transfer has sparked interest from Leicester City and West Ham United.
The Spanish international has scored eight goals in thirty-four appearances this season, chipping in with five assists.
The 34-year-old is coming towards the end of his career and has limited mobility but has certainly proven his worth over the last few months.
He should only be allowed to leave the club if Daniel Levy is willing to spend on a replacement who can help Harry Kane put the ball in the back of the net.
