'Watch another sport', 'No idea' - Tottenham fans divided over impending transfer exit claim

Tottenham fans have been left divided on social media after a claim that striker Fernando Llorente is set for the exit door during the summer transfer window.

The London Evening Standard have claimed on their website that the Spanish forward, who arrived in north London from fellow Premier League side Swansea City last summer, is not set to start against his former side on Saturday despite Harry Kane’s injury and that he is destined to leave a year after joining.

It is said that Heung-min Son is set to take over the centre forward role from the England striker, after Llorente’s disappointing campaign which has seen him net five goals in 28 appearances, although prior to his hat trick against Rochdale, his last appearance, he had scored just two in 27 outings.

With the Lilywhites now left fighting for a top four place in the Premier League, the FA Cup is their only hope of silverware, and it appears as though Son’s impressive recent form in front of goal has earned him the nod over the 33-year-old striker.

However, supporters were left divided over Llorente’s potential exit on Twitter, with some fans believing it would be the right decision while others feel his experience and attitude means he still has something to offer.
