Tottenham ready to offload Fernando Llorente

Tottenham Hotspur are yet to make a transfer this summer, and with just over two weeks to go until the deadline, times will be quite concerning for those at White Hart Lane.

Spurs have travelled to Los Angeles for the beginning of their pre-season tour, however, they are without a host of names following individual successes at the World Cup.

Mauricio Pochettino would have liked to have had his players back well in advance of the tour of the United States of America, as he would have liked to have been able to spend time with identifying which areas he wanted to strengthen.

However, despite the need to make some additions, it appears the Argentine is still prepared to let a few faces leave White Hart Lane, providing they get a suitable offer for the player.

According to a report by the London Evening Standard, one of those that will be allowed to depart is Fernando Llorente. The Spaniard is thought to be surplus to requirements at Spurs this summer, having only joined the club this time last year from Swansea City.

The Verdict:

Llorente failed to get going last season at Wembley Stadium, however, he did have to play second fiddle to Harry Kane for much of the year.

When he did finally get his chance to impress, he rarely took his opportunity and Pochettino appears to be happy to cut his losses on the striker.

The former Swansea striker has travelled with the squad to LA, however, he may just be able to use the opportunity to put himself in the shop window for potential buyers this summer.
