The Spurs manager knows that Llorente wants to play more games.
But with Harry Kane in such great form, it is tough for Llorente to find a spot in the team.
"We'll see [on Llorente's future]," he told the media at his press conference.
"Fernando is part of the squad. But you know when you compete with Harry Kane it's difficult.
"Of course I am so happy with him, his behaviour and personality.
"He's very professional and it's a little bit unlucky that you can't give him more opportunities to play, but of course when we signed him he knew his role and he's doing a fantastic role for the club.
"It's not easy for a striker to come here and compete. It's football.
"Because football is difficult to play with two or three strikers. If you want to dominate games you need more midfielders than strikers.
"If you want to play more direct or in a different way, maybe you play with wingers, fast, you know the balance is important, always to have a plan who you want to play.
"There are many things. But of course when you want to sign a striker, always they say 'why do you want me why you have Harry Kane?'.
"That's true and that's right, that's the first question from the agent or the player when you meet the player of course."
