Fernando Llorente earned cult hero status at Tottenham during their run to the 2019 Champions League final.
He netted the crucial goal in their quarter-final win over Manchester City and changed the second leg of the semi-final against Ajax.
In September 2019, he signed for Italian outfit Napoli following his release from Spurs.
His first season in Naples wasn’t a resounding success, as he scored just four goals from 24 appearances across all competitions.
This campaign is going even worse, and he hasn’t played a single minute of a game thus far.
He’s been on the bench in the league five times but not got on once.
Eurosport report he is, unsurprisingly, looking for a new club in the January window.
Sampdoria have apparently already made an offer and he is set for talks in the coming days to see if a deal can be done.
ESPN reported back in July that Llorente was an option for Spurs, as they looked for a backup to Harry Kane.
In the end, Jose Mourinho landed Carlos Vinicius on loan to be Kane’s deputy.
That means it’s extremely unlikely Spurs would be sniffing around their former frontman in the winter window.
But it is a shame that his career has nosedived somewhat since leaving Tottenham as an unlikely hero of their European run.
