Fernando Llorente could be on his way away from Spurs as Tottenham have missed the deadline to extend his contract.

Llorente is currently on £100,000-a-week with Tottenham and his contract expiry could help free up the wage budget for some much needed summer signings.

Fernando Llorente has enjoyed a good season at the club and has scored some really crucial goals to guide his side to the Champions League finals. The Spaniard made most of the opportunity he got in the absence of Harry Kane and Dele Alli. Llorente was without any doubt the most important players for Spurs in the Champions League.

The Sun reports that, Llorente’s availability on a free transfer has sparked interest from Leicester City and West Ham United.

The 34-year-old joined Spurs from Swansea City in August 2017 for £15m and has scored 8 goals and provided 5 assists in 34 appearances for Spurs this season.

Llorente is coming towards the end of his career and selling him for any offer that comes along is the right thing to do as the club can use that money to bring in a younger cover for Kane.

But the Spaniard supposedly has interest in returning to Spain, with a possible destination being Athletic Bilbao.

Speaking to Marca however, Llorente revealed that he has ‘no idea’ what the future holds.

“We cannot do anything now, we now have to wait and see if we have another opportunity like this one and keep fighting,

“I am finishing my contract and I have no idea about my future. We will see what happens in the coming days.”
