Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is reviving his pursuit of Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente.

The Daily Mail says Redknapp is desperate to boost his striking options after missing out on Internacional's Leandro Damiao and only securing the services of Emmanuel Adebayor on loan from Manchester City.

With the Togo striker likely to return to the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season, Redknapp has once again pinpointed Llorente after missing out on the 6ft 5in Spanish international - who has netted six times in 11 games this season - last summer.

After a 2-1 victory in a pre-season friendly with Bilbao, preliminary talks were held between the two clubs, but the 26-year-old - known as The Lion King in his native country - stayed at the San Mames.
