Spurs lead race for Llorente

Tottenham Hotspur have emerged as favourites for the signature of Juventus striker Fernando Llorente, according to Tuttosport.

Having seriously reinforced the front line this summer, the Bianconeri are eager to offload the player who is earning €4.5 million per season.

And while there are plenty of top sides that would jump at the opportunity to sign the Spain international at the earliest opportunity, his high wage demands are proving to be a problem.

Nevertheless, Tottenham Hotspur appear ready to offer around €15 million for his services, and they have already enquired about the possibility of luring Llorente to White Hart Lane this summer.

The likes of Liverpool, Monaco, Porto and West Ham are also believed to be keen, and it is now only a matter of time before the striker leaves Turin.

Llorente, 30, scored 27 goals in 90 competitive fixtures for Juventus, eventually losing the starting berth to good friend Alvaro Morata.
