Tottenham Hotspur should consider Rodriguez capture if Llorente leaves

Tottenham Hotspur should ponder a move for West Bromwich Albion forward Jay Rodriguez if Fernando Llorente leaves before the end of the transfer window.

What’s the word?

Harry Kane is the main man in Mauricio Pochettino’s team, and his position at the point of attack is unlikely to change any time soon.

Fernando Llorente was brought in from Swansea City last year, but he struggled for game time, starting just one Premier League clash.

In total, the Spaniard made 31 appearances in all competitions, but he was lacklustre in front of goal having found the back of the net on just five occasions.

There has been no official word on whether Llorente will be at the North London outfit for the 2018-19 season, but the fans have previously expressed a desire to offload.

Would Rodriguez be a decent replacement?

Following West Brom’s relegation to the Championship, questions have been raised over the futures of some of their first-team players.

Jonny Evans has already departed for pastures new at Leicester City, while Craig Dawson and Rodriguez have reportedly attracted interest from Burnley.

Tottenham should add themselves to the mix in regards to a pursuit for Rodriguez as the former Southampton forward could be an adequate back-up to Kane.

Last season, the 28-year-old scored 11 goals and created one assist, and even though he nabbed just seven of those hits in 37 league outings, he could prove to be a decent option in cup competitions.

As long as the Baggies do not demand too much money for him – and they are within their rights to considering he has three years left on his contract – Tottenham should be part of the conversation.
