Fernando Llorente is ready to making a move to Juventus
Llorente close to a Juventus move
There is a real striker crisis developing at Tottenham Hotspur, and todays Transfer Rumours And Gossip columns are doing little to alter that fact. Long term Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City target Fernando Llorente is reported to be on the verge of a move from current team Athletic Bilbao to Italian Serie A Champions Juventus.
Juventus have been on the lookout for a striker for the entire summer transfer window and like Tottenham Hotspur, have not managed to find and secure the appropriate signings as yet. Juventus have made an offer of £14 million for Fernando Llorente already, which Athletic Bilbao rejected. However, Llorente has since told his current club that he does not wish to extend his current contract beyond next summer, which has added huge amounts of fuel to the transfer fire surrounding him.
Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas Boas has a genuine concern surrounding his attacking options at White Hart Lane, with just 5 days to go until the Premier League opening fixture against a solid Newcastle United side. At the current time, Tottenham Hotspur have just one recognised first team striker, namely Jermain Defoe. Defoe did not feature very often under Harry Redknapp and has not lived up to expectations in any way, during his spells at The Lane. He is an extremely pacey striker with excellant movement and a genuine finishers instinct. However, for whatever reason, Defoe has never fulfilled the potential that everyone could see in him.
Could AVB be the correct manager to get Jermain Defoe firing on all cylinders? Every single Tottenham Hotspur fan must surely be screaming...YES!!!
