Tottenham striker open to move away from club in summer



Fernando Llorente of Tottenham

Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente is open to leaving the club next season as his contract ends in the summer, according to the Sun.

The Spaniard has found regular playing time tough under Mauricio Pochettino and was quoted by the Sun as saying:

“I would gladly rejoin Bilbao next summer. I will see what offers I have at the end of the season.

“I could continue in the Premier League, go back to Spain or return to Italy – where I was very happy.”

The 33-year-old has only played nine minutes for Tottenham this season. However, the former Swansea man understands it isn’t easy to replace Harry Kane in the team.

“It is frustrating to be left on the bench or not be called up.”

The striker further claimed that Tottenham are one of the biggest clubs in Europe and lavished praise on Kane.

“It can’t be easy to leave out players who have trained well. I’m also aware that I am at one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

“There is a lot of competition in attack. Harry Kane is a phenomenal player, and that makes it difficult for me to play regularly.”

Llorente added that he has always played first-team football and is trying to accept his position in the team now.

The Spaniard has struggled for goals at Spurs with just five goals coming from 30 appearances last season. In fact, a number of them came from the bench.

The 33-year-old needs to play more but that cannot take place at Tottenham with Kane in such good form. The best solution would be to let him leave in the summer.
