Tottenham Hijack Chelsea’s Move To Sign Spaniard – Deal Could Be Completed Before Deadline

Published

on

Tottenham have joined the race to sign Fernando Llorente of Swansea, according to reports from David Ornstein, and have had their bid accepted, despite Chelsea also being interested in the forward.

The 32-year-old Spanish striker scored 15 Premier League goals for the Swans last season as he kept them in the top tier but for a long time, it was Chelsea who were poised to sign the former Juventus striker.

Antonio Conte had managed Llorente during their time in Juventus and this new report will come as a kick in the gut as the Champions have also lost the race to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has joined Liverpool.

Finally, An Attacker For Spurs

For us, this could be a great signing to have as we have only signed Davinson Sanchez, Juan Foyth and Paulo Gazzaniga in this window. The 32-year-old would be our first attack-minded signing in the summer and it could be one of the steals of the summer.

Llorente would provide us with a different dimension in the attack and could be the man to give Harry Kane a bit of a reprieve this season. The Spaniard is extremely experienced, having played in the Serie A and La Liga, and would certainly give us an advantage in the air.

Daniel Levy is a master of working in the transfer window and this deal would not be the worst one we have done in recent years. The 32-year-old knows the Premier League well and will be a hit given our attack minded fullbacks that keep peppering the ball into the opposition penalty box.

We haven’t had the best of luck when it comes to big-money players joining us in recent years but with a tried and tested player in Llorente, there is little chance of failure. Of course, he is not a big name but given that we have a pretty good first team, adding cover for our top stars is the best way forward.

Redeveloping the stadium has also affected our finances and it would be prudent to keep transfer fees in check before splashing it out on players that don’t click for us.

There still is time for the deal to be completed and with Chelsea looking to save face, they will bid again for the Swansea man. Hopefully, we can make their transfer window a lot worse and bring in the striker before the window closes.

    NO No No No – Please NO! Think Soldado – Think Adebayor. Back off on Llorente in exchange for Chelsea selling us Batshuayi. Let them get Barkley too. Our long term sick bay is already full (with two players twice as good).

    Dan Levy – This would not be a hijack. It’s a Chelsea ambush.
