Chelsea are set to complete a deal for Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente, according to reports.
Various reports across English media have claimed Blues boss Antonio Conte has been interested in the Spanish international for some time and that interest now looks to have turned into a concrete move for the former Sevilla man.
A deal in the region of £15m is being reported by ESPN, yet they also claim that Ronald Koeman has made a late play to bring him to Everton, having already signed Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney.
Welsh side Swansea are reluctant to allow Llorente to leave the club with just 24 hours remaining the summer transfer market, but they are also keen to see how much both Chelsea and Everton are willing to battle it out for.
Llorente started his professional career with Athletic Bilbao, scoring over 100 goals for the Basque side, before leaving for stints with Juventus, Sevilla and Swansea.
Whilst Chelsea will do all they can to sign Llorente, he will be seen at the club as a direct replacement for Diego Costa, who after not returning to training following the summer break – looks set for a return to Atletico Madrid in a £41m deal.
