According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea could try to bring Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente on loan until the end of the season in case they fail to sign Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud.
The Blues are trying to find a high-profile forward to provide some depth to their attacking ranks, as Michy Batshuayi never managed to impress Antonio Conte, leaving Alvaro Morata as the only choice.
Edin Dzeko’s arrival at Stamford Bridge seemed to be close, but the deal collapsed as Chelsea refused to meet Roma’s demands.
The London giants are now trying to capture the France international from Arsenal, but the distance between their offer and the Gunners’ request is still large, and Conte is running out of time.
Therefore, the former Juventus coach has oriented to the 32-year-old Tottenham striker, whom he tried to grab last summer.
However, Llorente rejected Chelsea’s proposal preferring to move to Tottenham, and it appears that both the player and the club have no intention of separating this January.
