Mourinho eyes shock move to bring back former Tottenham striker this summer

Tottenham may have to cut corners this summer if they are to address all the areas that new boss Jose Mourinho wants to.

After finishing 6th in the Premier League, Mourinho has helped the team secure a Europa League spot and therefore they will be looking to bulk out the squads options.

According to ESPN, Fernando Llorente could again be a Tottenham player this summer, as the club search for a viable back up option for Harry Kane.

At 35 the striker would not be the most exciting acquisition, but it would certainly give the club a plan B in attack.

Standing at 6ft 4’, his ability in the air and to perform in the Premier League cannot be questioned. However, his actual ability to score goals can. Since 2017 he has scored 2 goals for Spurs and then 3 for Napoli. Admittedly most of the time he has been used as a substitute, but it’s still hardly prolific.

The good news is that it seems Spurs improved form has helped convince Kane to stay at the club, as any rumours of that ilk have now worn off. Manchester United appear to have their attacking focus elsewhere, with Jadon Sancho seemingly the main target for them.
