Tottenham will let Fernando Llorente go on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season. The Spanish striker has been a replacement for Harry Kane since his arrival at the Spurs in 2017, making 60 appearances in all competitions since his signing of Swansea.
However, he has been called to action much more regularly in recent weeks. Kane has an ankle injury and Llorente has been more than responsive. The 34-year-old scored Spurs’ third crucial goal in Tottenham’s 4-3 defeat of Manchester City, allowing them to qualify for the Champions League semi-finals. He then had a huge impact on the bench against Ajax in the second leg of the semi-final match in Amsterdam, allowing his team to recover 3-0 behind the total to score goals again outside.

However, the Sun reports that it did not do enough for Llorente to win a new contract in North London. He will be dismissed at the end of the campaign after scoring two Premier League goals for Tottenham. The Spanish international will have a number of contenders, despite his progress, but Napoli would be interested in bringing him back to Serie A.
Llorente spent two seasons at Juventus from 2013 to 2015, scoring 27 goals in 92 appearances for the Turin team. The target player also played for Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla, getting 24 caps for his country and scoring seven international goals.
