Valencia are targeting Fernando Llorente as a possible signing this summer, according to

The Spanish transfer news website reports the La Liga club have their eyes on seven different strikers, with Iago Aspas, Carlos Bacca, Eder, Kevin Gameiro, Alessane Plea and Angel Rodriguez also being looked at.

It’s fair to say that Fernando did not make the impact that was expected of him during his first season at the club, and he has been widely tipped to depart just a year after arriving from Swansea.

With the player now being 33, and the fact that he scored just once in the Premier League last campaign, we can’t expect to get much of the £12m we paid for the Spaniard back.

Athletic Bilbao are also reportedly interested in the forward, and Llorente has expressed a desire to return to his former club in the past. The presence of Valencia in the race could allow us to get a higher transfer fee, but we shall see.

  • Does Llorente need a lift to the airport. If this is genuine interest, snap their bloody hand off before they change their mind. He is one of a long list of players, particularly strikers, who could be classified as ” not the best idea we ever had”. The sooner he is gone the better.

  • Bloody £12m for a 32 year old and shipping out Janssen on loan after only a season who had cost £17m is not good enough. Fair play we apparently got a 5m Euro loan fee for Janssen which was good going but like I said £12m on a 32 year old is simply not good enough! I did yesterday argue he didn’t get much of a chance but that’s thankfully as HK10 has been superb as usual. I guess at the time it seemed decent business as he’d scored 15 goals in the previous season but the fact they accepted the £12m for him smacked of them getting the good deal.

  • My problem with Llorente is that he didn’t put a shift in for his team mates. I understand that strikers go through periods where the ball doesn’t hit the back of the net, but not being fit enough even in his twilight years was not acceptable.

  • Lloriente follows Jannson, Soldado, Bent, Bentley, as recent “failure” striker signings who in turn follow Postiga, and Rebrov. It could be said that we are just not very good at watching, scouting and signing strikers.
