The former Swansea striker came to Spurs to play back-up to Harry Kane although, unfortunately for the Spaniard, he has simply not found his shooting boots when the opportunity has arisen. What Pochettino needs is a striker that can play second fiddle to the English marksman but also can step up to the mark when asked too
Llorente is in his 30’s and a move to a team, much like his old club Swansea, would be better suited for him at this stage of his career.
The Belgian defender has been struggling for game-time following his return from injury recently, despite his previous importance to the Tottenham cause. He still has a year left on his contract and many of the Premier League clubs are starting to sniff around the centre-back.
With his age and experience, he would be a great buy for a rival. Indeed, it seems that Pochettino is willing to go in another direction away from Alderweireld, with Davinson Sanchez impressing at the club since his arrival in the summer.
