Leeds eye Llorente

Talksport understand that Leeds United have been linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur outcast Fernando Llorente.

The Championship outfit, who currently sit third in the table and are favourites for promotion are keen to strengthen their attacking line in January as they look to seal a return to the top flight after fifteen years in the football league.

Llorente has struggled to find his best form since signing from Swansea City in the summer of 2017, scoring just six goals in thirty-five games in all competitions and most of those appearances have come as a substitute.

He has played just thirteen minutes in the league this term – coming on briefly in both last month’s win at West Ham United and the defeat to Watford back in September.

Should he move to Elland Road, he would be reunited with manager Marcelo Bielsa, who managed him for two seasons at La Liga side Athletic Bilbao.
