Tottenham reportedly prepared to pay €8m for Fernando Llorente; club also allegedly interested in Angelo Ogbonna

Tottenham WHL

Could Tottenham Hotspur be on the verge of signing two players from the Champions League runners-up?

According to a report from the print edition of Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in two Juventus players this summer.

Spanish striker Fernando Llorente and Italian centre-back Angelo Ogbonna have been tipped to move to White Hart Lane before, but the latest story suggests Spurs have now revealed how much they would be willing to pay for the former and may have also used a meeting last week to reinforce their interest in the latter.

Italian webite TMW have since picked up on the claims that Tottenham are prepared to pay between €7million and €8million to sign Llorente, whose current contract in Turin runs until the summer of 2017.

The 30-year-old has not had the best of seasons in Italy, scoring nine goals in 45 matches, but he could still offer Tottenham an effective alternative to Harry Kane as and when required. In total Llorente has scored 138 goals in his club career to date.

As for Ogbonna, he is a 27-year-old centre-back and would bring some additional experience to Tottenham’s back-line were he to arrive.

That said, Spurs have already signed Kevin Wimmer this summer and with Jan Vertonghen, Federico Fazio and Eric Dier all likely to stay Mauricio Pochettino may not move for yet another centre-back…unless it is a bargain, of course.
