Tottenham Hotspur fans have called on their club to keep Fernando Llorente following the striker’s hat-trick against Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup.
Llorente netted three times for Tottenham in their 7-0 win on Friday night, whilst Serge Aurier (2), Son Hueng-min and Harry Kane were also on the scoresheet.
The 33-year-old has been strongly linked with a move away from Tottenham in recent weeks with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.
The experienced forward has only managed one goal in 21 Premier League games since arriving at Tottenham from Swansea City in the summer of 2017.
However, following his treble against Tranmere, a number of Tottenham fans have called on their club to keep hold of the striker for the remainder of the campaign.
League Two outfit Tranmere did not provide much of a battle on Friday night, but scoring three times in one game at any professional level should be admired.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Tottenham fans can be seen below:
Would love for us to keep Llorente, has been good when called upon throughout his Spurs tenure

Nice to see Llorente get a hat trick plus I think we should keep him and give a chance.

Clinical, professional, ruthless performance from Spurs. Special mention to Llorente who was outstanding tonight. On to the next round. #COYS

Look at Llorente with the Spurs kids. Fantastic and he looks so happy with them. Just keep him at Spurs. Pointless getting rid.
