Tottenham have offered Fernando Llorente a new one-year contract, according to the London Evening Standard.
Llorente’s initial two-year deal expired at the end of June but Spurs never officially confirmed the Spaniard’s exit.
He was apparently earning £100,000 a week before the end of his contract, but the Standard claims his new deal will see his salary reduced.
However, Fiorentina are said to be keen on taking Llorente to Italy while there is reportedly interest from other clubs.
It is believed Tottenham were offered the chance to sign Atletico Madrid striker Angel Correa during negotiations over Kieran Trippier’s transfer earlier this week.
But it appears Spurs would rather sign Llorente for no transfer fee than splash out on a new striker to provide back-up for Harry Kane.
Llorente came good towards the end of last season, scoring important goals in the Champions League and playing a crucial role in the semi-final victory over Ajax.
That said, most of his two-year spell in north London was disappointing and Tottenham could arguably do with a better deputy for Kane.
