Former Tottenham Hotspur star Graham Roberts insists he is not against the club making a move to re-sign Fernando Llorente on a free transfer.
Spurs enjoyed an aggressive summer of recruitment as they looked to refresh the squad of Nuno Espirito Santo.
Spurs have brought in five new players, with Bryan Gil, Emerson Royal, Pape Sarr, Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero all coming in, though Sarr was loaned back to French club Metz for the remainder of the season. Spurs also shipped out Juan Foyth, Toby Alderweireld, Moussa Sissoko, Joe Hart, Danny Rose, Erik Lamela, Paulo Gazzaniga and Serge Aurier.
Will Son stay at Tottenham next season?
However, the club did not manage to bring a new striker into the club to provide support for Harry Kane.
Llorente, of course, is a former Spurs star, playing for the club between 2017 and 2019 and playing a key role in their run to the Champions League final, scoring the winning goal in the quarter-final against Manchester City and assisting Lucas Moura’s third goal in the remarkable semi-final against Ajax.
Llorente has left Udinese on a free transfer and remains without a club, and Roberts says he would be open to the potential of him returning in the summer.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “He could do. He’s been around, he knows what the club’s about.”
