Tottenham agree deal to sign Fernando Llorente from Swansea

Tottenham have agreed a deal to sign striker Fernando Llorente from Swansea.

Spurs started negotiations to sign the 32-year-old on Tuesday and agreed terms with Swansea on the deal on Wednesday morning.

Chelsea are also in talks to sign Llorente, although no official bid has been launched by the Premier League champions.Swansea manager Paul Clement had said he was confident of keeping Llorente at the Liberty Stadium earlier this week but did admit “something can come out of absolutely nowhere” ahead of Deadline Day.

The Spain international joined Swansea from Sevilla last summer and scored 15 goals during his debut season in the Premier League, helping the Swans retain their top-flight status.

Llorente has previously played under Chelsea boss Antonio Conte when the pair were at Juventus, where he scored 23 goals in 66 Serie A appearances.
