‘Thank God’ – Some Spurs fans react after forward reportedly snubs contract offer

Fernando Llorente is now a free agent having seen his contract with the club run out this summer.

The forward put in some important performances towards the end of the season in the absence of Harry Kane.

While some fans have been bewildered by why the club haven’t yet made an official announcement on Llorente, Football Insider has now revealed that it is because Tottenham are still trying to sign the 34-year-old on a one year deal.

Since the former Juventus man is a free agent, rules would still allow Premier League clubs to sign him despite the closure of the transfer window.

The report claims that Spurs were initially knocked back in their bid to re-sign him on a one-year deal last month and that the Lillywhites now tabled a new offer.

However, it is claimed that Llorente has turned down the offer as it was on considerably reduced terms to his previous £90,000-a-week deal.

The news has seen some Spurs fans take to Twitter to share their thoughts on Llorente’s apparent snub.






Spurs Web Opinion

Since the transfer window has closed and Spurs didn’t manage to bring in another forward option, they probably have their hands tied as there is no one else apart from Llorente they can go for now. Llorente and his entourage are probably aware of this and thus trying to get the best deal possible. I still expect the Spaniard to sign on a one year deal and I believe he can still come in handy as a plan B or in case the squad suffers an injury crisis.
