Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente will leave the London club at the end of this season.

Llorente has been playing for Spurs after his transfer from Swansea in 2017. Fernando knew from the very beginning that he would be playing Harry Kane substitute’s role.

Since then, former Athletic Bilbao and Juventus player scored 13 goals, including only two in the Premier League, where he managed to gain only seven appearances in the team’s starting line-up.

The last few weeks, when Llorente helped Tottenham to pass Manchester City and Ajax to reach the Champions League final, became the best period in North London for the 34-year-old Spaniard.

However, this didn’t change the club’s attitude to Fernando. Spurs had the opportunity to use their option to extend Llorente’s expiring contract for 12 months, but that option expired last Saturday, according to the Daily Mirror.

Thus, the Champions League final against Liverpool on June 1 will become the last match for the Tottenham Hotspur player. According to the press, AC Milan, AS Roma, Valencia and Marseille are interested in the striker’s services.
