The forward has just six months remaining on his contract and Tottenham may consider a deal in this transfer window to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.

Llorente is out of the picture at Tottenham, which has opened the door for a potential exit.

The report claims that Olympiakos and Galatasaray have extensively scouted Fernando Llorente and are considering a move for the forward.

The Spain international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.

According to the Football Espana, “Galatasaray and Olympiakos have both joined the race to sign out-of-favour Tottenham forward Fernando Llorente. The experienced striker has previously been linked with a return to Athletic Club Bilbao, but football.london cites a report in Fotomac that the two European clubs are now interested. The 33-year-old netted 118 goals between 2004 and 2012 at San Mames but has only 23 minutes across 19 Premier League games this season.”

According to Turkish news outlet Star, the ex-Juventus ace has agreed terms with the Lions, who are ready to pay £904,000 for his signature.
