The 34-year-old forward’s contract expired at the end of last season in north London and he has moved back to Serie A. Llorente previously spent two years at Juventus but returns to Italy to play for perhaps their closest rivals for the Scudetto. The Spaniard played a key part in Spurs’ run to the Champions League final last season and will look to carry that momentum forward. He scored 13 times in two years with the club as he deputised for Harry Kane for Mauricio Pochettino. Llorente also arrives in Naples with international pedigree having scored seven goals in 24 games for La Roja, though those days are well behind him now. Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis tweeted a picture of his new striker signing a contract on Monday morning. It showed a grinning Llorente putting pen to paper and he will join up with his new team-mates immediately. Napoli are looking to get back on track after losing 4-3 in heartbreaking fashion against Juventus on Saturday.Tags: Champions LeagueFernando LlorenteJuventusNapoliNorth LondonScudettoTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more
