Tottenham striker drops transfer hint when quizzed over his future

Worry for Spurs?

Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente failed to rule out a transfer back to his former club Juventus when quizzed over his future this week.

The Spaniard only just joined Spurs from Swansea City this summer, but has struggled to gain regular playing time in Mauricio Pochettino’s side due to the incredible goalscoring form of Harry Kane up front.

Signed largely as cover for Tottenham, it is perhaps little surprise to see Llorente fail to get a great deal of time on the pitch just yet, though he insists he’s happy with the north Londoners.

Still, when asked about possibly rejoining Juventus at some point, the 32-year-old seemed open to the idea of one more spell with the Turin side.

‘In black and white I spent two of the best years of my life,’ Llorente was quoted on Calciomercato.

‘Juventus is like a family to me. Back in the future? Never say never, but I’m good at Tottenham.’

This comes as Tottenham also face uncertainty over the future of some of their more important players, such as Kane, Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld.

More Tottenham transfer woe?

The Sun claim Manchester United are lining up a £170million move for Kane in the near future, while Sport have reported Barcelona’s growing interest in bringing in Eriksen as an alternative to Philippe Coutinho.

Finally, Fichajaes also say Chelsea have opened talks to sign Alderweireld as he is yet to sign a new contract with Spurs.

Tottenham have done well to keep hold of their star names in recent times, having previously been forced to cash in on top talent such as Gareth Bale and Dimitar Berbatov when bigger clubs came calling.
