Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente is back in first team training with the rest of the squad.

The Spaniard had a disappointing season last year for Spurs and is hoping for a change in fortunes.

Tottenham spent £14 million to sign Llorente from Swansea City last summer.

Straight away he looked unfit, and did not look up to speed when given a chance.

His finishing was poor and his confidence was lacking, and by the end of the season Spurs fans were calling for youngsters Reo Griffiths or Kazaiah Sterling to get a chance.

This pre-season is Llorente's opportunity to show what he can do, and raise his fitness levels.

Spurs fans could see a very different Llorente after his first pre-season under Mauricio Pochettino, but if he can't impress the Argentine, he could be sold or loaned out before the transfer deadline.
