Despite Fernando Llorente moving on from Tottenham Hotspur this summer as his contract came to an end, there have always been simple suggestions that we may have placed another 12-month deal on the table for him as he continues to assess his future.

Report Suggests Former Spurs Striker Could Still Return On Reduced Terms

With his release, there were strong suggestions on the rumour mill that the 34-year-old would return home to the Spanish leagues as he looked to wind his career down, and everyone knows he splits the opinions in the fanbase right down the middle in terms of his usefulness as back up to Harry Kane.

Over the weekend the Daily Mail seem to have simply rehashed the rumours of a 12 month deal and presented it as ‘new fact’ with the twist that the new one year deal had now definitely been offered.

It led to the inevitable split of opinions on social media as fans debated whether or not this would be a sensible decision by the club. Must admit I half liked the idea of convincing Peter Crouch to come back out of retirement, but given the prominence of Kane at the club, unless we find a striker capable of playing an alternative role in manager Mauricio Pochettino’s system (if it doesn’t change), Llorente continues to make some sense.

  • We’ve been trying to find proper back up for Kane for four years now with no success. I suspect things have now changed, we are no longer looking to buy. What we are trying to do is get through this season with the hope Troy Parrot will be ready by the next one. if that’s true keeping Llorente for one more year (at reasonable wages) might make sense.

  • It was only last season when the rest of the squad learned how to use and play too Llorente’s strengths and in turn it happened to be Llorente’s best season in a Spurs shirt. So imo it would be a sensible decision by our club and I personally would like to see Llorente back as a free signing, because he definitely gives us a different style of play to turn too if all else is failing. Not to forget imo he deserves at least another year based on his last years performance alone, he worked hard and scored some very important goals. So now that the team around him now know how to play with him it is imo a no brainer! It will be good to see you in a Tottenham Shirt again Llorente and ‘Welcome home’! COYS!
