Tottenham are reportedly preparing a fresh bid for Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente.

According to The Mirror, the north London club 'will make' an offer of £20 million for the Spain international, provided they can offload at least two of their current crop.

Harry Redknapp has been informed by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy that he must streamline his squad before significant reinforcements can be made, and the goalscoring department is expected to be hit hardest.

Spurs forward Robbie Keane is considered surplus to requirements and will almost certainly leave White Hart Lane, while offers will be considered for Roman Pavlyuchenko, Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch.


This would free up extra funds for Redknapp to launch a renewed approach for Llorente, while the Spurs boss is also allegedly pursuing Villarreal's Giuseppe Rossi.

Llorente, is understood to have been identified by Spurs a player with the potential to fire them back to the Champions League next season, with the 26-year-old having scored 21 times during the last campaign.

Liverpool and Manchester United have also been previously linked with Llorente, while Spurs are also said to be monitoring Diego Forlan and Didier Drogba.
