Chelsea are set to sign Swansea City and Spain striker Fernando Llorente but could face late competition from Everton, say reports.
Various reports suggest the English champions have agreed a deal in the region of €17m (£15m) for the former Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla striker, although ESPN now suggest Ronald Koeman’s side can hijack a deal.
The Swans are reportedly reluctant to lose the target man, who also had a stint at Juventus, but believe a bidding war between the clubs could significantly increase his price.
The Pamplona-native netted 118 times in 333 appearances for Athletic Club over a nine-year spell, before having stints at Juventus, Sevilla and Swansea.
He played under Chelsea Coach Antonio Conte at Juve, while he would join a growing Spanish contingent at Stamford Bridge, where there are currently six in the first-team squad.
Should the 32-year-old move to Goodison Park, he would be their second Spanish striker to arrive this summer following a deal for Malaga’s Sandro Ramirez.
