Two to go before Spurs can move for Llorente

by Matthew Harris on July 1, 2011

There are suggestions today that Spurs are back in for Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente and one story states that we have already made a £20m bid for the player.

Llorente is 26 and has been at the San Marnes side for the last six seasons where he averages around a goal every three games. While he remains some way down the pecking order at international level, he has scored 7 times in 13 games for Spain. – On his Wikipedia page, a picture shows him being marked by Peter Crouch just before scoring his first international goal!

However, another story suggests that Redknapp has been told that he must sell two from Keane, Defoe, Crouch and Pavlyuchenko before he can make the bid.

While we await any further developments could Llorente be just the striker Spurs need to score the goals that the others didn’t last time around?
