Tottenham jumped to the front of the queue to sign the Spaniard from Swansea City right from under the noses of Chelsea, who had previously been favourites for the striker.
However it was Spurs who completed a £15 million swoop – with the Spaniard set to provide competition to Kane for the 2017/18 season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side also completed the signing of full back Serge Aurier earlier on deadline day, with the thought that the Ivory Coast international will replace the gap left by Kyle Walker in the squad.
And, Danny Murphy has praised Spurs for their quality business over deadline day, explaining how both will improve Pochettino’s squad.
Murphy told the London Evening Standard: “Llorente should be excellent back-up for Harry Kane but, if Tottenham are chasing the game, they could play together.
“Spurs face a lot of defensively minded teams so Llorente will allow them to get balls into the box from wide – and there is nothing wrong with playing that way when required.
“I also like the look of Serge Aurier. He has been a decent full-back and is an excellent athlete, so he should be able to cope with the physical side of English football.”
