Now he’s revealed why.
Llorente has revealed a last-minute phone call from Mauricio Pochettino was what convinced him to snub Premier League champions Chelsea in favour of a move to Tottenham.

The former Spain international made the move from Swansea City for a reported £12million on deadline day and is to provide competition for star striker Harry Kane.


“At the very last minute, Pochettino called me and convinced me [to join Tottenham],” Llorente told The Daily Mail.
“The truth is that Chelsea have been after me for a long time but at the end you know how this works.
“I am very happy because at the end everything came out perfect. Tottenham are an amazing club with a wonderful project and I think I fit in very well.
“It is clear that Pochettino played a very important role in the decision.”
