Arsenal target Llorente is the perfect striker……..for Spurs!

There are many reports saying that Fernando Llorente’s agent is in London for talks with Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, although Man United and Real Madrid (really?) are also said to be in the running, with the Gunners being favourites to sign the out-of-favour Juventus failure for a fee of around £8.5m.

Yes, Arsenal need some competition for Olivier Giroud, but no, we do not want or need Llorente. I would back Walcott or even Welbeck to score more goals than this over-the-hill unwanted ex-Spanish international striker, which is why I think Tottenham should go all out to sign him! He could perhaps improve on Soldado’s scoring record for the Spurs!

Llorente was a quite good striker when he was younger. He is big and strong and has great heading skills and helpful hold up play (sound familiar?), and his record of 18 goals in 45 games for Juve in his first season was just about acceptable, but last season (his second in Turin) he only managed 9 in the same amount of games. Juve responded by signing three more strikers this summer (Simone Zaza, Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala) which has left the Lion King desperately looking for one more payday before he retires.

There is as much chance of Arsenal signing this has-been as there is of us signing Lionel Messi for £10m, which is why I think that Tottenham would be perfect for him!

  1. Arsenal fans want big name big price signing and not a 8.5m signing……

    1. It’s Wenger who wants big name big price top top top signing like Alexis, Ozil, Cech and (maybe) Benzema.

  2. Benzema, Lewandowski, Ibrahimovic, Cavani, Reus, Draxler, Greizmann. I would be happy with any of them.

    DM: Busquets, Carvalho, Krychowiak, Bender, Gustavo

    Come on Wenger

    1. definitely happy with a 34yo pacey Ibarhimovic……

      1. I’ll take that over Theo Walcott any day.

    2. ArseneIsYourDaddy

      Can you wave your magic wand and make these guys AVAILABLE?

      PSG has 34 year old Zlatan and Cavani.
      PSG has to be eating rotten french cheese to sell Cavani and depend on a 34 year old striker for the season.

      Are you people constipated?

  3. Suarez equalised 1-1
    Come on Barca. Beat Chelski

  4. Jeez, this guy’s agent is certainly doing the rounds – he was first linked to Real Madrid, then us then United. Absolute BS. This time tomorrow he will be Suarez’s replacement at Barca. Not a cat in hells chance he is coming here. But still more likely than Benzema.

  5. Akpom > Llorente.
    Llorente = Poor man’s Giroud.

  6. Still no transfers. But I’d rather Wenger take his time and pick the right player…..

    -Jovetic signs for City for 22.5 mil. Scores 8 goals in 2 years. – Now has signed for Inter for 14.3 mil.

    -Di Maria signs for Man Udt for 59.7 mil. He scores 3 goals in EPL – Now has signed for PSG for 44 mil.

    -Felipe Luis signs for Chelsea for 15.8 mil. Does virtually nothing but sit on the bench. Now signed back by Atletico for undisclosed fee.

    -Balotelli signs for L’pool for 16 mil. Complete failure at the club. Likely to be sold to Sampdoria for 7 mil.

    -Spurs sell Bale for 85 mil. Use the money to buy Paulinho, Lamela, Soldado, Chadli, Capoue, Chadli, and Chiriches. only ONE…ONE player is still at the club (Eriksen). All the rest have been SOLD LOL.

    1. Thank You for posting this. Fans who are thrilled with the idea of purchasing the “sure thing” Benzema for 50-60 mil need to read and heed your little list of recent “sure things.”

    2. @dilla
      The best transfer reality check “EVER”…

  7. He would be a good striker for Spurs & you would back DW (8 goals to show for a season) to score more than he???

    DW would make an ‘ok’ striker for Spurs.

  8. I thought we were thinking EPL title and deep UCL run? We need someone better than Llorente.

  9. Spurs be wise to sell Kane to raise the funds to buy Llorente.

  10. Llorente? I hope that is a joke. He only brings some size. Sanogo has that.

  11. of late there have been reports that the deal with arsenal will be sealed on Monday. hope not true.
    benzema for anything above £35 m is a joke..Madrid should not bully us simply because they know how desperate we are for him.its reported that they want £57 so as they can use the same to buy Reus.
    if the case it would be better using the same to buy Robert lewadosky

  12. Please Wenger, buy Reus and give Theo a chance upfront. I don’t see any thing to say that benzema is a WC striker.
