Tottenham keen on Serie A star

Fernando Llorente (Juventus)Tottenham are keeping tabs on Juventus striker Fernando Llorente, according to reports from talkSPORT.

The Spaniard only moved to Turin over the summer, but is already believed to be considering his future at the club.

Fellow arrival Carlos Tevez, Fabio Quagliarella and Sebastian Giovinco have so far enjoyed the lion’s share of playing time in attacking roles, limiting the man who signed for free from Bilbao with just two minutes of first-team football to his name in the black and white shirt.

Llorente is growing concerned that a lack of time on the pitch may hinder his hopes of featuring in the 2014 World Cup, and is keen to rectify the situation.

Having signed him for free, Juve may be tempted to cash in early for a quick profit.

Tottenham are keen to take advantage of the situation with a January offer.

Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas spent in excess of £100m during the last transfer window, but is still keen to add to his squad.

He sees Llorente as the perfect arrival, and player that could form a deadly partnership with Roberto Soldado.

AVB still has plenty of cash to splash following the world-record sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

Should Tottenham move for Fernando Llorente?
