Spurs Forward Fernando Llorente has enjoyed a good campaign at the club scoring crucial goals and helping them reach the champions league final.

Now 34, there was a lot of buzz surrounding the player’s future at the club and we had conflicting reports on if the player will stay at the club or whether he will be sold.

Llorente stepped up in the absence of Harry Kane twice to help his club win matches when the star striker suffered from Ankle injury.

After arriving at the club from Swansea in 2016 Llorente did not have the best of starts t his life at the club but this season he very well has lived up the money Spurs paid for him back in 2016.
