Fernando Llorente’s time at Tottenham Hotspur could be short-lived if the latest rumours are anything to go by.
The London Evening Standard reports that the Spaniard will be available for transfer when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
The former Juventus forward has struggled for game time at Wembley having made just 28 appearances in all competitions, with only one being a Premier League start.
Within that spell, Llorente, who signed from Swansea City last year, has scored just five times, and three of those came in a 6-1 romp over Rochdale in the FA Cup.
The 33-year-old was never going to dislodge Harry Kane from the number one spot up front, but he has fallen further down the pecking order in terms of reliable goalscorers due to Son Heung-min’s form.
With news rumbling that Llorente could no longer be a Tottenham player, supporters have been tweeting their thoughts on the possible transfer.

Always sad to see such a good professional like him go. He did wasted his chances but still. I like him a lot tbh.

I think we just have to accept that the backup striker has to be someone like Son who can also play winger. It seems that's the only way to keep a quality player behind HK content.

Son is more of a forward than him. So we seriously need to find a decent replacement who can actually give Kane a rest

This would seem to fit in with news of the type "Is the Pope a Catholic?" #COYS

Compared to our last two back-ups, as of now, I may be dumb to say this but im satisfied with his efforts this campaign. Yes, he may not be as clinical as we hoped but hes a great team player and gives all he can. His experience will do wonders for the team going forward.

I have a feeling Arp in Llorente out could be done early in the summer. Would love that. #COYS
