Llorente linked to Chelsea

Spanish striker Fernando Llorente could be about to be reunited with former Juventus boss Antonio Conte at Chelsea, according to reports.

The 31-year-old joined Premier League club Swansea City this summer after an unsuccessful stint at Sevilla and has netted five goals in 13 appearances for the Swans, but Gianluca Di Marzio reports he could be set for a move to the English league leaders.

Llorente is most famed for his nine years at Athletic Bilbao where he scored 118 goals before moving to Turin in 2013 for a two-year stint before his move to Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan.

Di Marzio states Conte is keen to have a striker he can trust as a backup to Diego Costa, with Michy Batshuayi set to move to either West Ham or Crystal Palace on a loan deal.
