Tottenham signing Llorente dreaming of trophies with Spurs

02 September 2017

Mauricio Pochettino now has a more experienced Plan B striker to fill in for Harry Kane.

The Blues appeared in pole position to land Llorente in a £15million deal, but will not face late competition from Spurs.

Here's a question: what do Romelu Lukaku, Alex Sandro, Virgil van Dijk, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fernando Llorente and Ross Barkley have in common?

Llorente, a World Cup victor with Spain, scored 15 goals last season as Swansea successfully avoided relegation.

Llorente may only prove a short-term solution, but he's a strong back-up to the England worldwide and a useful option off the bench if manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to try a different approach.

Llorente has agreed a two-year deal with Spurs after spending the morning in London with Swansea City's permission, according to Guillem Balague.

The Italian tactician sees Llorente as the ideal mentor to help new club-record signing Alvaro Morata settle in England as fast as possible.

At 32, the Spaniard will be looking to clock as much playing minutes as he can - especially after being deployed in a crucial role for the Welsh club.

In Llorente's case, the decision to snub Chelsea was probably also motivated by Spurs' willingness to give him a multi-year contract. To do so, he needed to add more depth to his attack, thus making Llorente a quality signing. The Daily Mail are reporting that Spurs have received, and accepted a £23m bid from West Brom for the Dutch International striker.
