WOW THIS IS A SHOCK!

Deal agreed to sign Llorente!

not sure how I feel about this one, but as others have said, atleast he's proven PL, and he's a different option from the bench..shouldn't be too expensive either in transfer fee or wages. Plus it will p!ss Chelsea off haha

15 goals and an assist last season i 33 PL games. Not bad for a striker who played in a club tussled in relegation fight

I don't think we really need him. He is not that type of player to bring Spurs to the Next Level.
He is 32 and I don't understand why Spurs is buying him.

It's not a done deal. We have agreed a fee if 15mill with Swans but Chelsea could still do a Willian on us.

Prem and CL experienced goalscorer. Better option than Janssen, and as he's not 27 any more he'll be happy to be Kane's number 2

I said earlier in the window he is the type of player we needed as cover for Kane. A player that has the ability to play in the team and not look out of place but at the age where he knows he won't play week in week out and happy to be cover for Kane.

It's the best we could get because top players in their prime do not want to play second fiddle to Kane, no chance. Well happy if we can get this over the wire. Experienced, quality, strong and knows where the goal is and has done it in this league. No gamble at all

If we get him I'll be happy. It's reported that he is keen to come and work with Poch. He'll be a significant upgrade on Jansen IMO

I am not sure I would be happy , considering his lack of pace, age and swansea had to play a certain way to get the best out of Llorente, our stats show we are not a crossing team that whips in crosses , Harry Kane has not scored much headed goals or has that reflect on Harry not being very good in the air.

The only thing that excites me about this deal, if it happens, we will get one over Chelsea for doing it to us. I expect Chelsea now to sign Ross Barkley.

I reckon this would be good business, for many of the reasons already stated. Seasoned pro, would expect bench warming duties, proven goal scorer across Europe. Low wage expectation and modest fee.

not sure his wages will be that low tbh... He's getting 75k and first team football at Swansea, not sure what he'll demand from us especially as he's tight with Conte and Chelsea would obviously offer good wages.
