Llorente pictured in Spurs shirt ahead of deadline day move

Amid reports claiming Chelsea had bid for Swansea forward Fernando Llorente, Hazard indicated he has spoken with Batshuayi on the subject of his future. Chelsea have been interested in landing Llorente since January, with boss Antonio Conte keen to work with him again after being with him at Juventus.

FC reported earlier this week that Everton had made a late move for Llorente as they look to bring a new striker to Goodison Park, but Chelsea have always been favourites for the Spain global.

The 28-year-old spent last season on loan at Stoke City, but could only manage a couple of goals in ten league appearances.

Rafa Benitez's Newcastle remain in the frame too for the Spaniard, who endured a frustrating debut season in north London.

It's only 29 hours until the closure of the summer transfer window, so Chelsea FC will have to most fast in order to get their last minute deals done.

Chelsea have so far signed four players this summer after tying up deals for Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata.

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his take on speculation on the futures of Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen.

The 32-year-old appeared set for a deadline day switch to Stamford Bridge after the Premier League champions' reported £15m bid was accepted by the Swans.
