With Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi linked with a loan move away from Chelsea, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has reportedly identified Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente as his backup striker for next season according to a report on The Times.

The 32-year-old striker was linked with a move to Chelsea in January but a deal failed to materialise and The Times claim Chelsea could make a move for Llorente this summer.

Llorente scored 15 league goals for Swansea City last season as he helped Swansea City avoid relegation last season.

Llorente is in the final year of his contract and the report claims Swansea are determined to keep him at the Liberty Stadium.
