Fernando Llorente wants to sign a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur, according to talkSPORT.

The striker has scored two goals in his last three appearances for Spurs including the winner in Wednesday’s 2-1 victory over Watford in the Premier League.

However, he has struggled for game time since joining from Swansea City in the summer of 2017 and had been expected to leave when his contract expires this summer.

Tottenham’s current injury crisis has seen Mauricio Pochettino turn to Llorente to lead the line, which he has struggled to do despite his recent goals.

And according to talkSPORT, the Spaniard now wants to extend his current deal with Spurs rather than leave the club for nothing in the summer.

The report also mentions interest from clubs in China and Turkey, including Super Lig champions Galatasaray.

While Llorente has proved to be an important member of the squad in recent games, we don’t expect the 33-year-old to still be a Tottenham player at the start of next season.

Spurs will surely aim to recruit better cover and competition for Harry Kane.
