Tottenham win bidding war for Llorente

Fernando Llorente is making the move from Wales to London, according to Sky Sports, as Tottenham Hotspur has won out for the Spanish striker.

Spurs have reportedly spent £12.1 million for the 32-year-old Llorente and is having his medical examination done today.

It was speculated that Chelsea were the front runners to land the Spanish international as he had played with current Blues manager, Antonio Conte, at Juventus for one season.

However, no official bid has been put forth by the defending Premier League champions and that paved the way for Spurs to launch a bid to bring Llorente to Wembley.

The veteran forward has had quite the career since breaking out with Athletic Bilbao, making over 300 appearances in the span of nine years for the club.

After a few years with Juventus and a season with Sevilla, Llorente joined Swansea in 2016. There, he made 35 total appearances and tallied 15 goals for the Swans.
