West Ham United are looking to continue their spending in the transfer window as the Daily Mail claims that London club want to sign Fernando Llorente from Tottenham.

The Spaniard is available on a loan or a permanent deal and would cost around £7million should he leave the club permanently. The report also adds that since making his switch from Swansea, Llorente has failed to impress Mauricio Pochettino.

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has seen his striking options reduce, as Andy Carroll picked up an injury and Jordan Hugill has been sent to the Championship. While the Hammers have been busy in the transfer market, the same cannot be said about Tottenham.

Llorente’s father had earlier claimed (h/t Football.london) that his son would not sign a new contract at Tottenham. The player’s father had also added that Napoli could interest the Spaniard.

 

The Spaniard only scored five goals for us in 31 games for us and only one in 18 Premier League appearances. Llorente did look a little laboured in some games and it would not be a surprise if he is sent out in the transfer window.

We would, however, still require a striker should Llorente move away as we cannot rely on Kane being fit for the entirety of the season and play every game this campaign.

Llorente would be a decent option for us in order to change things up in a match but things haven’t really worked out for the player at Tottenham.
