According to a report in The Guardian, Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente looks likely to leave the club when his contract expires in the summer, but the club should actually listen to what some fans are saying in this case and keep him.
Well, The Guardian report that big changes could be afoot for the north London outfit come the end of the season, following two successive transfer windows without signing a new player.
The report states that Spurs have plenty of potential new players on their radar, which means that some current individuals could be on their way.
The Guardian reports that 34-year-old Llorente is likely to be one of those when his deal is up, and if you asked supporters a few months ago whether they wanted the Spaniard to stay it might have been a different opinion to the one some have now.
The problem for Tottenham is that if they do allow the tall centre-forward to go, they are tasked with finding a striker who will be happy to settle for being Harry Kane’s back-up.

Llorente is at an age where he is clearly happy to do that as long as he gets his fair share of minutes here and there, and he has often stepped up – especially in 2019 – with seven goals and four assists in 24 outings in all competitions.
The former Swansea City man was particularly impressive when Kane was absent through injury, enjoying a run of one goal and three assists in three successive Premier League appearances from the end of January and into February.
The impact he made then – as well as in other games – seem to have convinced the following Spurs supporters that Mauricio Pochettino should look to keep him ahead of next season, and they have got a point because he can be a real handful from the substitutes’ bench and appears to have a great attitude.
I’d keep Llorente.
