Tottenham in last ditch attempt to snatch signing from Chelsea's clutches

As of now, it is believed that Llorente's exit depends on Swansea's ability to sign a replacement but the club are in talks with Manchester City over a deal for Wilfried Bony.

The Guardian reported earlier on Thursday's transfer deadline day that Spurs were looking to blow Premier League rivals Chelsea out of the water to land Llorente.

Llorente, a World Cup victor with Spain, scored 15 goals last season as Swansea successfully avoided relegation.

It was widely expected the Spanish striker would join Chelsea before the transfer window shuts tonight.

Llorente is one of the frontmen under consideration, although they will have to fight off interest from Chelsea to sign the Spaniard.

And Leicester forward Mahrez has been given permission to leave the Algeria squad and return to Europe to "formalise his transfer to his new club", with Chelsea said to be in the running.

"He is 23 years old".

Llorente has made 35 appearances for Swansea so far, scored 15 goals along the way.

However, there could be a late twist as the Express are citing a report from Goal that claims Tottenham are trying to hijack Chelsea's move after matching their £15m bid for Llorente.

According to the Standard, Swansea and Llorente are waiting for the Premier League champions to slap in an improved bid.

One of the key reasons for Swansea's survival past year, Llorente showed his class scoring plenty of crucial goals and impacting play positively for Paul Clement's side.

Chelsea haven't yet made the significant breakthrough required for the former World Cup victor, who has played alongside Alvaro Morata at Juventus, as well as being managed by Antonio Conte in his two-year spell at the Turin club.
