Tottenham to renew interest in Athletic Bilbao striker Llorente

Spurs have reignited their interest in Athletico Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente, according to talkSPORT.

Harry Redknapp held preliminary talks with the Spanish club over the summer, but a move failed to materialise. However, with a permanent move for on loan Emmanuel Adebayor unlikely due to the Togo striker’s wage demands, rumoured to be around £170,000, and Roman Pavlyuchenko dissatisfied with his playing time at Spurs, Llorente is once again under consideration.

The 26-year-old Spain international has scored six goals in eleven games for Bilbao so far this season. With just a year and a half remaining on his contract, Redknapp is aware that the club may want to cash in on Llorente before his contract expires, and is considering a bid at the end of this season.
