Swansea striker Fernando Llorente is keen to work with Antonio Conte once more as Chelsea step up their attempts to sign a striker before the end of the window on Thursday, reports the Telegraph.

Despite having signed Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid in a club-record deal this summer, the Telegraph report that Chelsea’s Italian coach is desperate to bolster his attack and wants to sign the 32-year-old attacker as a back-up to Morata.

As per the Telegraph, the Premier League champions attempted to sign the striker back in January, however, their efforts were thwarted by former Chelsea coach – now Swans manager – Paul Clement who did not want to let the forward leave at such a crucial stage of the season.

However, the Telegraph reveal that Llorente is aware of Chelsea’s interest in him and the striker is said to be considering a move to Stamford Bridge as the Blues prepare to make a £15 million bid for the Spanish no.9.
