Chelsea notched up their second win of the season against Everton, when they faced the latter at Stamford Bridge earlier this weekend. The reigning Premier League Champions seem to have finally settled down, having lost their opening fixture against Burnley in a surprise 3-2 defeat.
However, their present coach Antonio Conte, who was the main craftsman behind their sixth Premier League title in the last term, is looking for new options to add to his roster in order to strengthen his side even further, so as to eradicate any loopholes that might be detrimental to them in the forthcoming days.
Having already spent a considerable amount of money to bring in top class recruits from other European leagues, the Italian mastermind is now looking to raid fellow Premier League clubs in order to get himself more quality players.
One such player, who has been linked with a move to the West London club this summer, is the 32-year-old Spanish striker Fernando Llorente. The lanky marksman is currently playing for Swansea City and might be open to a move to Stamford Bridge before the transfer window closes in the next few days.
The Spain international made his move to the Welsh club last summer after a disappointing campaign with Sevilla in the La Liga, which saw him score just seven goals in 36 appearances throughout entire 2015/16 season for his former club. However, things took a positive turn in the new season after he joined Swansea City and he ended the season with 15 goals to his name, having appeared in 35 matches for them so far.
This has attracted a number of clubs from the Premier League as well as the La Liga towards the 32-year-old who are looking to bag him before the deadline day. However, in the current situation, the Blues seem to be the favourites to get the player into their side for the rest of the season.
The defending champions are in search of a new striker, who might be included in the team as a backup for their present strikers Michy Batshuayi and Alvaro Morata.
With no sign of Diego Costa making a comeback into the side, after the hot-headed Spaniard was told by Conte that he is not in his plans for the new season at the end of the last term, Llorente has come up as the perfect man to fit the bill for the Italian tactician for the rest of the season. So should Chelsea go for him?
