Chelsea will look to offer £15million for Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente before the end of the transfer window on Thursday, according to Daily Telegraph journalist John Percy.

Manager Antonio Conte worked with the 32 year old at Juventus and has been trying to sign him for the Blues for the last six months after enquiring about the forward in January.

The Swans turned down overtures from the London club for Llorente back then, and manager Paul Clement is still keen to keep the Spaniard, but there is certainly a bigger possibility of the move going ahead this time around.

Not only have Swansea signed Tammy Abraham on loan from Chelsea to strengthen their forward line, but the Telegraph believe they are seeking to secure a deal for former striker Wilfried Bony before August 31st.

The Welsh club were heavily reliant on Llorente for goals last season after he scored 15 in the Premier League, but if Bony makes the move back from Manchester City, they could be more inclined to sell with more options already at their disposal in attack.
