'The truth is that Chelsea have been after me for a long time but at the end you know how this works'.

The 24-year-old went through the 100-goal barrier for Tottenham when he scored twice against Everton last weekend and followed that with another brace in his side's Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund.

However, in a surprise twist, the move fell through at the last minute, with Llorente instead opting to sign with Chelsea's fierce London rivals Tottenham. The Tottenham project is impressive. "Tottenham are an awesome club with a wonderful project and I think I fit in very well", said Llorente.

Antonio Conte worked with Llorente during the pair's tenure at Juventus, and is known to be a huge admirer of the former Athletic Bilbao striker.

London tube incident being treated as 'terrorism'
The London Ambulance Service said 18 people have been taken to hospital, and four more reached there on their own. She said the UK's terror threat level would remain at severe - the second highest - but would be under review.

The striker added to La Vanguardia: "It is clear that Pochettino played a very important role in the decision".

"Of course the game will be tough because all the games are very hard, but I think if we keep the mentality and be strong and show our performance, we will be close to winning again". "He was at the end of his playing career and I was at the beginning of mine", Llorente said.

"I'm happy because everything came out flawless".

"Later, he was manager of Espanyol and I was an Athletic player, and we competed against each other various other times".

President Trump to visit hurricane-ravaged Florida Thursday
He told reporters Thursday in Florida that his tax cut plans are "not to benefit the wealthy". The president and first lady head into Marine One to embark on their trip to the region.

Tottenham travel to Cyprus in two weeks to play APOEL, and Pochettino is confident the performance against Dortmund will stand them in good stead for the rest of their campaign.

Despite failing to win their first two home games of the season, registering a draw against Burnley and a loss against Chelsea, Spurs may have finally dispelled their Wembley curse after a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday.

'It's true, the team were in the bottom half and we were a little bit under pressure because the team were there and playing well, but not winning games and we were a bit under pressure.
