Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente has been linked with a move to Leeds United.

According to The Sun, the former Spanish international is wanted by the Championship side in the January transfer window to help with their push for a return to the Premier League.

Leeds are coached by Marcelo Bielsa, who Llorente played under during their time together at Atletico Madrid.

The report claims that Tottenham would be prepared the let the forward leave for £4million rather than lose him for free in the summer when his contract expires.

Llorente moved to Tottenham from Swansea City for a fee of £12.1million (Sky Sports) during the 2017 summer window after impressing in his first season with the Swans where he scored fifteen times in the Premier League.

His time at Tottenham has been a stark contrast, the 33-year-old has failed to make an impact at the club and has previously stated that he struggles with the fact that he does not play on a regular basis.

Tottenham have struggled to find a striker to help with Harry Kane’s goalscoring burden having tried Roberto Soldado, Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente.
