Fernando Llorente could return as cover for Harry Kane

Llorente spent two years at Spurs before moving to Italian side Napoli in the summer of 2019 on a free transfer.

The player is not only familiar with the Tottenham player but can also provide Mourinho with a target man upfront.

Tottenham are in the market for a striker with Harry Kane sidelined until April with an injury. The lack of a senior striker at the club has led to Lucas Moura and Son Heung Min being asked to fill in.

Mourinho has stated that Kane could be sidelined until next season and is also at the risk of missing the Euros. (h/t Sun)

The lack of a specialist striker was telling in the 1-0 home loss to Liverpool. A lack of finishing was all that prevented Spurs from securing at least a point against the league leaders.

Having joined from Swansea in 2016, Llorente played 66 games for Spurs and scored 13 goals. (h/t Whoscored)

A reliable backup for Kane, the striker came off the bench to score the goal that dumped out Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League.

Not only would Llorente be a low-risk option for Mourinho, but he is familiar with the league and the Spurs players and can be thrown into action without a bedding-in period.

At the age of 34, the Spaniard would also be more receptive to act as a backup once Kane returns.
