    Chelsea are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Swansea City forward Fernando Llorente, according to Spanish newspaper AS.

    The Blues are on the brink of completing a deal to lure the 31-year-old striker to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea’s fifth signing of the summer.

    The Swans value Llorente at £30million but that the Premier League champions are hoping to complete a transfer for around half of the asking price.

    The Spain international has been touted as a prime target for the west Londoners throughout the summer as manager Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his attacking options at Stamford Bridge.

    If the deal goes through before Thursday’s 23:00 BST deadline, Llorente would become the Blues’ fifth signing of the summer following the signing of Willy Caballero, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger and Alvaro Morata.
