34-year-old Fernando Llorente is one that’s been without a club since he made a decision to depart from Tottenham last season. “El Rey Leon” As his moniker suggests, is finally close to joining Lazio on a possible free transfer, according to Corriere Dello Sport. Ongoing talks have been happening for several days now with Lazio, according to some reports.
Other major Spanish clubs are also rumored to sign the 34-year-old player, some of which include Inter Milan, Napoli, and Fiorentina. Lazio’s manager Filippo Inzaghi is also still on the lookout for filler for the forward position with Ciro Immobile since Felipe Caicedo is yet to sign a new contract in the process.
Llorente is not new to Serie A since he had some credible playing time at Juventus from 2013 to 2015. The 34-year-old talent has been eyed by Manchester United as well and is going to be given the chance to join after the transfer deadline due to being a free agent. Although he finished eighth, he did manage to qualify for the Europa League then and won the Coppa Italia.
