Inter Milan are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Llorente is out of contract this summer and is expected to leave Spurs on a free transfer.

The Spaniard has been linked with a return to his former club Athletic Bilbao in the past, but his performances for Tottenham in the Champions League look to have attracted bigger fish.

Llorente scored vital goals against Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City in the knockout stages, as well as playing an instrumental role against Ajax in the semi-final second leg.

And as a result, Spanish outlet Eldesmarque claims Inter are among the clubs keen on acquiring the 34-year-old’s services.

Antonio Conte has just been appointed Inter manager, and the Italian attempted to sign Llorente when he was Chelsea boss.

With that in mind Inter’s interest certainly makes a lot of sense, especially as they will be able to get him for nothing.

There is still a small chance Tottenham will offer Llorente a new one-year deal, but that’s looking increasingly unlikely as time goes on.
