Fernando Llorente facing exit door at Tottenham

Fernando Llorente is facing the exit door at Tottenham.

The London Evening Standard says Harry Kane's injury absence is unlikely to produce an extended first-team chance for Llorente, who is set to be made available for transfer this summer.

Erik Lamela appears far more likely to take Kane's place in the starting XI at Swansea on Saturday.

When Llorente was signed from Swansea last August, he was supposed to take some of the strain from Kane.

But before his hat-trick against Rochdale in the FA Cup fifth-round replay last month, Llorente had managed only two goals in 26 games. Recently, he has not even made the bench.
