After signing Gylfi, it is now reported that Everton would like to sign Fernando Llorente to link back up with the Icelandic international and, although it is not a proper gauge, have been instilled as the bookies favourite to sign him before the window closes.
All summer it has been Chelsea who have been linked with a move for the striker but it is now reported that Everton manager Ronald Koeman is looking to sign a physically strong striker, who is good in the air and can function effectively as a target man. And we all know that Llorente can match that description.
We have yet to see the striker in action this season after he picked up an arm injury in the close season but he is expected to return after the international break and feature against Newcastle at the Liberty on September 10th.
He joined the Swans in 2016 on a two-year deal, and scored 15 goals for the us, playing a major role in keeping us up. He has made 24 appearances for Spain and of course has a World Cup winners medal from the Spain squad in 2010.
Antonio Conte has been keen to link up again with Llorente and has looked to add him to his squad in the last two transfer windows and it now seems as if he may have competition from another Premier League club as well as our desire to hold onto him.
