Tottenham Hotspur forward Fernando Llorente emerges as a summer target for Barcelona, according to a report.

Barcelona are reportedly considering a summer swoop for Fernando Llorente.

Llorente will see his current deal with Tottenham Hotspur expire at the end of June and it is widely thought that the centre-forward will leave the London club in search of pastures new.

Barca are said to be closing in on a deal for Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann, but it has been reported that the Spanish champions still want to sign another striker this summer to back up Luis Suarez.

According to the Daily Mail, Llorente has emerged as a target for the Catalan giants, who will be looking to complete a domestic double when they face Valencia in the Copa del Rey final this weekend.

Llorente has scored eight times in 34 appearances for Tottenham during the 2018-19 campaign.

The 34-year-old also has a wealth of La Liga experience, having scored 88 times in 285 appearances in Spain's top flight during spells with Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla.
