Anyone under the illusion that Fernando Llorente was bought as a bit part, another ageing lunk following in the footsteps of Moussa Sissoko is in for a surprise.
Llorente was a considered choice and this is reflected in his wages. Gladys believes that the 32 year old swings straight onto Spurs on a deal identical to that of Kane’s.
“I’m very happy to join Tottenham, an amazing Club and I can only say I come here to help Tottenham try to win titles. ”
I think they are working really well in the last few years, I like Mauricio Pochettino, his mentality, his thoughts about Tottenham and I think the project and the philosophy of this Club is amazing.
“I’m very excited to come here. I think Harry Kane is an amazing striker and I’m very happy to play with him and the other players. I want to get to know them and start to train with my new team-mates.”
Llorente is a quality addition with 15 goals from his last 33 appearances in the Premier League. At Tottenham, I believe he will prove to be a player that makes a real difference.
Former Tottenham player Danny Murphy said in The London Evening Standard.“I doubt Daniel Levy will make a habit of signing 32-year-old outfield players but it is a clever bit of business.”
I make him right.
