Llorente explained: "The truth is Chelsea have been after me for a long time but at the end you know how this works".

But the 32-year-old said his decision was influenced by a late pitch from Spurs boss Pochettino.

But Kane scored in the last minute and Pochettino believes that to be a turning point in his time at the club.

Mauricio Pochettino insists Harry Kane does not have to leave Tottenham to be considered world class after the striker's impressive Champions League double helped make Wembley feel like home.

He was similarly effective at Juventus and boyhood club Athletic Bilbao, where his form led to his Spain call-up and the first of 24 worldwide caps.

"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".

"I made my first-team debut (with Athletico Bilbao) against him at the San Mames Stadium. He knows very well that after you need to deserve and show your quality to have the possibility to play".

"It was obviously an important part of my life there at that club and it's a game I always look forward to when the fixtures come out", he said. "He was at the end of his playing career and I was at the beginning of mine", Llorente said. "Now I play under him at Tottenham and I really want to give my best".

The Blues brought in Alvaro Morata to replace the likely outgoing Diego Costa in the summer as their first-choice No. 9, but their attacking depth remains relatively weak-a problem that could have been solved by signing Llorente.

"It's true, the team were 14th or 13th [they were 11th] and we were a little bit under pressure because the team were playing well, but not winning games and we were a bit under pressure".

Llorente made his first appearance for Tottenham on Wednesday night after coming on as a 87th-minute substitute in the 3-1 win over Dortmund.
