Tottenham Hotspur are set to hand Fernando Llorente a new contract but will accept any bids for the striker this summer, according to Football London.

Llorente’s current deal expires at the end of the season and Spurs hadn’t been expected to offer him an extension.

In fact, he likely would have been sold in the January transfer window if not for an injury to Harry Kane and Son Heung-min’s Asian Cup call-up.

Those absences saw Llorente become an important member of the squad, but the Spaniard hasn’t started since Kane return from injury.

Football London claims Tottenham will probably take up the option to extend Llorente’s contract, which initially suggests he could be sticking around for next season.

However, the reports goes on to say Spurs are likely to accept any bids for the 34-year-old in the summer transfer window – offers from Spain will almost certainly arrive.

Put simply, Tottenham plan to extend Llorente’s deal so they don’t lose him for nothing, which makes sense from a financial perspective.
