Fernando Llorente is expected to leave Tottenham as he’ll be out of contract in the coming weeks and hasn’t been handed an extension. The 34-year-old impressed for Spurs during the second half of the season, but his future looks away from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Llorente’s deal expires at the end of the month and he’ll have a number of offers to weigh up this summer.

According to Eldesmarque, Inter Milan are one of the clubs keen on his signature, with new manager Antonio Conte keen to renew acquaintances with the Spanish international. Conte worked with Llorente when he was at Juventus (45 appearances, 18 goals, six assists) and tried to sign the £75k-per-week striker when he joined Chelsea.

Llorente has had a nomadic career, playing for Athletic Bilbao (July 2004 – July  2013), Juventus (July 2013 – August 2015), Sevilla (August 2015 – August 2016) and Swansea City (August 2016 – August 2017), scoring and creating 231 in 558 appearances in all competitions.

At Tottenham, the 34-year-old contributed 19 goals in 66 games and put in some impressive performances in the Champions League (nine appearances, two goals, one assist) which helped Spurs reach the final in Madrid.
