Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur could be set to fight it out with la liga giants Barcelona for the signature of Spanish international Fernando Llorente, according to reports from Spain today.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is said to be interested in the Athletic Club striker and has sent scouts from Anfield to watch the player, while Harry Redknapp is also reportedly keen to bring the 27-year-old to White Hart Lane.

However Madrid sports daily AS are now reporting Barcelona are  interested in the player, whose Bilbao contract expires in June next 2013, and could be ready to offer a deal that would dwarf Llorente’s current weekly wage at San Mames.
