Tottenham have offered Fernando Llorente to Ligue 1 club Bordeaux, according to reports in France.

Llorente joined Spurs from Swansea City last summer for a reported fee in the region of £12 million, but he has struggled to break into Mauricio Pochettino’s first team plans.

The striker scored just five times across all competitions in 2017/18, including only one goal in the Premier League against his former club Swansea.

Despite being linked with a move away earlier in the summer, Llorente has suggested he is willing to stay at Spurs and fight for his place in the side – a tall task given that Pochettino likes to play with one striker and possesses one of the world’s best in that position, Harry Kane.

As a result, there is a chance Llorente will leave before the European transfer window closes on August 31st.

And according to French outlet Info Mercato (via HITC), the 33-year-old has been offered to Bordeaux, who are apparently on the lookout for a new striker.

Llorente won’t exactly be missed by the Tottenham fans if he leaves, but it is a shame the club didn’t bring in additional cover for Kane over the summer.

  1. Weird headline! If they offered him; why wouldn’t they let him go.
    I think the Llorente rumours get skewed by the brother/parasite/agent connection.
    I suspect he’ll stay and provide relief and backup as needed.
    He is probably okay with that. whereas Janssen needs to play more to demonstrate he has value.
