Athletic Bilbao push to sign Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente

Athletic Bilbao are pushing to sign Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente.

Llorente is eager for more action and Bilbao hope to re-sign the centre-forward this month, says El Correo.

Bilbao now plan to go on 'full offensive' to bring Llorente back to Spain.

The 33 year-old is off contract in June and has spoken of an ambition to play again for Bilbao.

New Athletic president Aitor Elizegi has said Garitano deserves to work with a 'reinforced squad in full' and has given his approval to the pursuit of a new striker.
