Fernando Llorente holding out for La Liga return

Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente is struggling for first-team opportunity in north London and is considering his future after being pushed further down the pecking order at Spurs.

The 33-year-old forward joined Tottenham in 2017 but has since struggled to go past Harry Kane and managed to only make 18 Premier League appearances since his arrival.

The former Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao striker has now admitted he would jump at the chance to return to Spain.

“I’ve been away for many years, I’d love to go back to La Liga”, Llorente said after Tottenham’s 2-1 triumph over PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.

Llorente was given a run in the final 15 minutes of the game against PSV and he went on to set up Harry Kane’s equalizer. He is now hoping to get more playing time as Tottenham continue to fight for trophies on four fronts.

Llorente has spent last three years in the Premier League, playing for Swansea City before moving to Tottenham.

His successful spell in south Wales earned him a £12.1 million move to London.
