Chelsea target in London to join a London club but may not join Blues

Chelsea’s long term target Fernando Llorente is currently in London for medicals but he appears to be heading to North London instead.

The Blues manager Antonio Conte signed Llorente during his tenure as manager of Juventus and has been looking for a reunion with the Spaniard since winter, but the Blues have failed to agree on a fee with Swansea with the Welsh side demanding over 30 million for his signature.

Tottenham joined the chase today and made an undisclosed offer which the Swans have accepted.

However, Swansea is expecting this news to spark a bidding war between the two London clubs and they expect Chelsea to return for him with a better offer.

The Swans have also acted swiftly to replace the Spaniard with a bid for Wilfred Bony that has been accepted by Manchester City.

The Ivorian would be returning to Wales after failing to impress at the Etihad Stadium. © 2017 Frontier Theme
