Chelsea and Manchester City battle for Fernando Llorente

The experienced 32-year-old striker Fernando Llorente has enjoyed a wonderful season at Swansea where he scored 14 goals and displayed some rather reinvigorated performances.

Having made great contribution in Swansea’s fight against relegation this season, Fernando Llorente is expected to be a subject of great interest in the summer transfer market and a couple of clubs have already joined the race.

Italian media outlet Tutomercato can reveal that Premier League champions Chelsea are keeping tabs on the Spanish striker with Antonio Conte keen to reunite with the players he knows quite well from their time together at Juventus.

The Blues are in the market for a striker and Conte feels Llorente would be a valuable addition to his squad.

In the meantime, however, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is thought to be casting admiring glances toward his compatriot as well. Guardiola feels Llorente would add a new dimension to the Citizen’s style of play with his robust physique and great aerial power.
