Swansea striker Fernando LLorente was a transfer target for Chelsea during the winter transfer window but the transfer failed to materialize.
Llorente admits the proposed move to Chelsea proved too ‘difficult’ due to Swansea’s battle against relegation.
“I already know Conte from Juventus,” said Llorente as quoted by Daily Mail.
“But it’s difficult in the winter when there’s a way out from a side you’re playing for and it’s normal that they didn’t go ahead with the deal.
“I’m very focused on the team and am looking forward to helping save us from relegation.
“The last few games I’ve been happy with as we’ve gotten away from the bottom. It will be a very tough fight, though, and we hope to get further ahead when we face Leicester in a final next Sunday.”
