He has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with Spurs, which could include the option of a third.
While Llorente will find himself as Kane’s understudy, this signing will allow their star player to be rested and for Spurs to compete on all fronts.
The former Spanish worldwide enjoyed an impressive debut in the English football, playing a key role in avoiding Swansea’s relegation by scoring 15 goals in 33 Premier League appearances.
Swansea, meanwhile, have announced the signing of Wilfried Bony, who returns to the club after a disappointing spell at Manchester City. The Ivorian, who joined City for an initial fee of £25 million in January 2015, will replace Llorente in Paul Clement’s squad. “I am 32 but I think I can learn a lot from Harry Kane and the other players”.
It will be an early chance for the North London side to show how well they have done to bring Llorente on board, and make Everton regret not pushing to sing him themselves.
The 32-year-old left Athletic Bilbao, where he scored 118 goals in 333 appearances, for Turin in 2013, but after a promising first season with Juventus, his playing time rapidly diminished.
