Antonio Conte is keen to reunite with his former Juventus striker Fernando Llorente as Chelsea prepare a £15million bid.
That’s according to the Telegraph, who suggest the Spanish international is interested in a move to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have already broken a club record to sign Alvaro Morata, but they are still relatively short on attacking options in the wake of Diego Costa’s exile.
An offer for Llorente would cast further doubt upon the future of current back-up Michy Batshuayi.
Swansea are reluctant to lose last season’s top scorer, but they are well aware of Chelsea’s interest following their initial approach in January.
Paul Clement is expected to replace him with Manchester City’s Wilfried Bony, who could make a return to the Liberty Stadium after an unsuccessful stint in the north-west.
While Llorente is currently out with an injury, he is still vital to Swansea’s plans. They will find it difficult to stand in his way if he pushes for a move, though, and it’s understandable if the forward wants to swap another relegation battle for Champions League football.
