Mauricio Pochettino’s side have defied all odds to qualify for the Champions League finals and finish fourth in the Premier League table.
Spurs have not signed a single player for almost 18 months now and have had to play most of their games at Wembley owing to the delay in the opening of their new stadium.
To make matters worse for Tottenham, Some of their Key stars have suffered injuries at crucial ventures of the campaign.
The only respite for Pochettino has been the quality of performance shown by his reserve players who have stepped up despite having not seen a lot of game time in recent weeks and playing out of their natural positions at times.
None have done it better than Fernando Llorente.
Spurs fans were desperate to get rid of the Spaniard in the summer but his performances this season in Harry Kane’s absence has certainly endeared him to the Spurs fans.
He popped up with some very crucial goals for the Spurs during their Champions League run against the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City, also putting his body on the line against Ajax to bring other attackers into play.
However, Despite all the good performances, he’s put this season, Tottenham will let go of Llorente after the Daily Mail revealed that the Spurs have missed the chance to extend the forward’s deal.
He runs out of a contract in the summer and the likes of AC Milan, Valencia, Marseille and AS Roma are interested in securing his services.
Naturally, some Spurs fans were desolate after hearing the news as they have taken to Twitter to thank Llorente for his efforts this season.
Will always be a hero of the club for that performance against Ajax

Definitely think it was worth keeping him on another year. With the extra games he played he was looking sharper. He was a great option from the bench.

Hero. Legend. Regardless what happens in the final people can not underestimate his influence in it. Even the seemingly most meaningless of contributions – 3rd vs Dortmund – was absolutely crucial. Nando should always be welcome at the Lane

Will never forget that he killed off Dortmund at Wembley, got the winner v Man City and changed the game v Ajax. He played a big part in our history
