The Spanish news outlet claim Llorente has been presented to them as a potential January option by intermediaries on the player's behalf.

 

Llorente's contract expires at the end of this season and he is unlikely to sign a new deal.

While Betis may not want to move, others are likely to be interested in a former Spain international striker who has a big profile in his homeland.

He would not be a great loss to Tottenham mid-season, but he would need replacing all the same, and Spurs would have to pay more, than any fee they could gain for selling the veteran striker on.
