The 33-year-old joined Spurs from Swansea City in the summer of 2017, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £12 million, but he struggled to establish himself with Mauricio Pochettino's side, although it could be argued that he wasn't given ample opportunity to prove himself.

A move to the east Midlands could be just what Llorente needs to help reinvigorate his flagging career, and he could prove to be a real asset for Leicester.

Standing at 6ft 4in tall, the Spaniard is incredibly strong in the air, and he would act as a fantastic focal point from which the Foxes could build their attacking play through.

He is also an accomplished finisher having scored 165 career goals, and his experience of playing at the very highest level would surely be a real asset for Leicester.

Llorente could be the ideal strike partner for Jamie Vardy, and he would surely help bring the best out of the England international.
