Tottenham set to lose out in deal for Juventus striker

Fernando LlorenteTottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are not sure where to go next after talkSPORT revealed that Valencia are preparing a mega deal for Juventus striker Fernando Llorente.

Mauricio Pochettino, who is expected to finally take Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado off the wage bill,  is seeking an ideal replacement for the two.

And the Spanish World Cup winner may be tempted into a return to La Liga as he is now entering the final stages of his career, after turning 30 last February.

Pochettino targeted the 6 ft 5 striker but in order to bring in any other reinforcements, he must offload the deadwood.

Adebayor narrowly missed out on a move to West Ham in January after it broke down in the last minute, whilst fellow flop, Soldado, is expected to return to Spain.

Spurs still have an outside chance, but they will have to move fast, after reports have been suggesting Valencia are slowly making moves to secure his future.
