Harry Kane blown away by Tottenham summer signing
By Danny Wright
Harry Kane believes that Fernando Llorente was a brilliant addition to the Tottenham squad after he sealed his switch from Swansea on transfer deadline day.
Llorente, 32, is yet to make an appearance this season after suffering a fractured arm during pre-season training, however he was on the Spurs bench on Saturday when his new side beat Everton 3-0.
Kane, 24, scored a brace against the Toffees and while Llorente is certainly going to be used as a back-up option to the England international, he is very glad to have him on board at Tottenham.
“Fernando’s a fantastic addition. He’s someone I can learn a lot from. It’s great to have that experience,” said Kane on Tuesday, as quoted by Yahoo Sport journalist Ben Pearce on his personal Twitter account.

Kane is expected to start up front for Spurs when they kick off their Champions League group stage campaign against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Wednesday night.

Vincent Janssen played in the Spurs talisman’s shadow last term but largely struggled to get a decent enough amount of goals when called upon due to rotation or injuries.
Pochettino will surely hope that Llorente can provide more than the Dutchman, who is now at Fenerbahce on loan, as the ex-Swansea man had a brilliant debut season in the Premier League last time out.
Spurs’ summer signing scored 15 goals in 35 appearances across all competitions last term in a Swansea side that battled relegation for most of the campaign.
