The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been very disappointed with the form of Fernando Llorente this season. Tottenham have been blessed with incredible attacking quality over the last few years in the form of Harry Kane, but Llorente simply hasn’t been up to snuff.
The Spaniard, of course, moved to Spurs over the summer and was expected to push Kane hard for a starting berth. He had enjoyed a stellar spell with Swansea City previously, proving his worth as a Premier League-level forward, and so his signing was met with unanimous delight in the Transfer Tavern.
However, the path he has taken since that point has been a very disappointing one. He has struggled to get close to Kane this term, and he’s still yet to score in the English top flight for his new club.
Given his poor form, the Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been locked in debate regarding his future, with many hoping for Pochettino to replace him in January. It’s clear that Spurs need more than one top striker if they want to compete at the highest level, and so that isn’t the worst idea.
With January fast approaching, Pochettino should certainly keep an eye out, and our landlord reckons that these two forwards would make great choices if he does choose to replace the Spaniard…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
