Tottenham could still re-sign former forward – but it's looking increasingly unlikely

Fernando Llorente

Tottenham (opens in new tab) are unlikely to re-sign former striker Fernando Llorente, report the Evening Standard (opens in new tab).

The Spaniard left the club when his contract expired at the end of June, but Spurs have offered the former £100,000-per-week attacker a new one-year deal on reduced terms.

However, they are yet to hear back from Llorente and are beginning to lose hope of him returning.

The 34-year-old was linked with Manchester United earlier in the summer and is now attracting interest from a host of Serie A clubs.

Roma (opens in new tab), Napoli (opens in new tab), Lazio and Fiorentina are all keeping tabs on the situation, with Italian sides having until September 2 to register their squads for the 2019/20 campaign.

Llorente scored 13 goals in 66 games during his two seasons at Tottenham.
