The agent of Fernando Llorente confesses the Tottenham striker would consider a return to Juventus in the future.

Llorente made 92 appearances for Juventus between 2013 and 2016, scoring 27 goals.

He won three Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia with the Italian giants, his most successful spell with any club.

A loan spell at Sevilla was followed by a permament move to Swansea, where Llorente scored 15 goals in his debut Premier League campaign.

That attracted the interest of Spurs, who parted ways with £12 million to bring the Spaniard to North London last summer.

But things haven’t really worked out for Llorente. The 33-year-old has made only 21 appearances in all competition – most of which have been from the bench – scoring just five times.

As a result, there have been suggestions he will leave the club at the end of the season.

His brother and agent, Jesus Llorente, claims his brother would be willing to re-join Juventus if the opportunity presents itself.

“You never know. In the past there have been several market rumours, but one thing is certain: in Italy Llorente would only come back for Juventus,” the agent told TuttoMercatoWeb.

Tottenham are now being linked with 18-year-old Hamburg striker Jann-Fiete Arp, suggesting the club is prioritising a younger player to provide support for Harry Kane.

His arrival would surely spell the end of Llorente’s time at Spurs.
