Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Galatasaray ‘agree’ personal terms with Fernando Llorente

Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente has reportedly agreed personal terms with Galatasaray over a January transfer.

The Spanish forward has spent a season-and-a-half with Spurs but managed barely any starts ahead of superstar Harry Kane, and he’s one of several players the club want to offload.

Fernando Llorente helped Tottenham qualify for the next round of the Champions League.

Overall, in 38 appearances, the 33-year-old has netted six times, and only once this season – against West Ham in the Carabao Cup.

And, according to reports in Turkey, Llorente is now all set to join Galatasaray as a replacement for the outbound Bafetimbi Gomis who has joined Al Hilal.

The deal is only likely to garner Spurs around £900,000 (€1million) but will get his wages off the books as they look for midfield reinforcements.

Llorente’ contract at Spurs ends next summer and he’s already expressed his interest in a move, although it appears he would favour a return to Athletic Bilbao.

“Being a player with a game changer role is not enough for anyone, he told talkSPORT’s Universo Premier.

“All the players want to play. Always. The more the better. But this is the role I am having now, I try to give my best and be ready for whenever the manager needs me.

“I am focused on the season and focused on helping the team in everything I can. But it´s true that we will see what happens when my contract is over and the season is over.

“I haven´t received any offer ahead of the January transfer window. I am calm, we will see.”
