Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente will move on once the summer transfer window opens for business, according to a report.

Fernando Llorente has reportedly made clear that he intends to leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season after being given limited chances.

The 33-year-old has provided back-up to Harry Kane during his maiden campaign with the Lilywhites, having arrived from Swansea City last summer for a fee of around £12m.

Llorente has been used 28 times by Mauricio Pochettino this term, but he has started just one Premier League game - the 2-0 win over former club Swansea in early January.

According to the London Evening Standard, Pochettino now plans to go without a recognised striker up top during Kane's injury absence, which could span a couple of months.

A frustrated Llorente will be given the chance to move on in the summer, which the report indicates he will likely take up.
