Report: Tottenham powerhouse among double summer exit as bids welcomed
Tottenham are set to offload both Fernando Llorente and Danny Rose in the summer as they welcome bids for the pair, according to a report.
The London Evening Standard claim on their website that the Spanish striker and England left back both seem headed for the exit door come the end of the season, in what could prove to be an important transfer window for the club.
It is said that powerhouse forward Llorente, who arrived from Swansea City just last summer, has failed to impress during his half a season with the Lilywhites, with just two goals in 23 appearances, and will be shipped out despite having been second in line to Harry Kane for the entirety of the campaign.
Rose meanwhile was hotly tipped for a January exit but a move never came off, and it is reported that the chiefs at Spurs are open to reasonable bids to be made for his signing, with nine outings for the 27-year-old this season.
Football Insider verdict
Llorente certainly has not had the desired impact since his arrival and on what he has shown so far, an injury to Kane could be absolutely devastating to Tottenham’s chances of success this season. If another took the England striker’s place regularly, as Heung-min Son did last season, then it would more likely demonstrate that the Spaniard’s days at the north London outfit look limited, and only a miracle could save him. As for Rose, an exit has always looked likely after his candid comments to the media last season, and Daniel Levy will be rubbing his hands at glee at the prospective price tag, especially with a ready made replacement in the shape of Ben Davies ready to step up to the plate full time.
