It doesn’t appear as though Swansea City are keen to part with striker Fernando Llorente.

According to The Sun, the Swans have issued a hands off warning to all interested clubs, which they believe includes Chelsea.

The Sun report that Swansea are looking to ensure they hang onto their best players this summer, with Paul Clement keen to further establish his side in the Premier League having narrowly avoided relegation in the 2016/17 campaign.

Llorente bagged 15 goals in his debut season in England, with one of those coming against Chelsea. Antonio Conte also knows the Spaniard well from their time together at Juventus. If The Sun are to be believed, however, he will have to look elsewhere in his search of offensive reinforcements.

At 32-years-old, Llorente is very much approaching the swan-song of his career. With Tammy Abraham and Ike Ugbo showing great promise, he would likely only further block their route into the first-team squad.
