According to Marca, Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente could move on this summer, and is considering a lucrative move to China as a result.

Spurs swooped to land Llorente from Swansea City on deadline day in August 2017, and he looked to be the ideal cover for Harry Kane having hit 15 goals for the Swans in the 2016-17 season.

However, the Spanish target man struggled under Mauricio Pochettino, starting just one Premier League game and only 10 games in all competitions, scoring only five goals.

Llorente was even overlooked in favour of Son Heung-min when Harry Kane was injured, and with a summer departure looking inevitable, Marca report that he is now considering a move to China.

Spurs teammate Mousa Dembele has been linked with a move to China too, but Llorente could now make the move, though it's unclear just which team are pursuing his signature.

The 33-year-old seemingly has no big role to play with Spurs, and his brother and agent Chus even told Calcio Napoli 24 that the striker won't be renewing his contract with Spurs.

Llorente can leave for nothing next summer, and Spurs would be wise to cash in now before he moves on for free – and that may well involve a move to China.
