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.

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.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Spurs have received, and accepted a £23m bid from West Brom for the Dutch International striker.More news: Mandira Bedi joins Prabhas starrer Saaho..
