Fernando Llorente left Tottenham last summer to sign for Napoli when his contract with the North Londoners expired after the Champions League Final.

After a decent start to the season at the San Paulo Stadium, the Spaniard has struggled for game time of late.

The experienced centre-forward does not appear to be in Gennaro Gattuso’s plans, with the Serie A side’s rumoured acquisition of Victor Osimhen (Guardian) only likely to push Llorente further down the pecking order.

ESPN reported last week that Tottenham were considering bringing the 35-year-old back to the club. It was claimed that signing a back up to Harry Kane is one of Jose Mourinho’s priorities this summer and Llorente was one of the options the club are considering.

Reacting to the report, some Spurs fans struggled to see how re-signing Llorente would be a step in the right direction.

Spurs Web Opinion

We certainly made a big blunder by letting Llorente leave last summer without replacing him as a lack of a back up to Kane cost us dearly this season. Ironically, I think Jose’s style of play would have got more out of Llorente than Pochettino’s. I do not believe Mourinho and Spurs would be considering the 35-year-old as anything more than a last resort this summer.
