If you were a Chelsea fan right now I am not sure you would be overly pleased with the signings you were being linked with as today's papers report that a deal for Fernando Llorente could be added to one for Danny Drinkwater before the window closes.
The Blues have long since been chasing Llorente with a move made in the January transfer window and knocked back leaving Llorente to score plenty in the second half of the season as we successfully avoided relegation.
This time around we are yet to see the Spanish striker thanks to the broken arm he suffered in a non football related accident during the summer.
It has been reported throughout this window that Chelsea were ready to make another move for the striker but are yet to make anything official although this is expected to happen quite possibly today.
The Daily Mail reports that Chelsea are ready to pay £15m to secure the services of Llorente but the Swans are reluctant to sell until they tie up their own deal to bring Wilfried Bony back to the Liberty.
That deal also has not come to fruition yet although various outlets have reported a fee being agreed and Bony keen to complete a move back to South Wales, two and a half years after he left.
For the Champions the pursuit of a 31 year old striker and a midfielder who is not as good as any that they have seems a little odd but ours is not to reason why as we look certain to lose Llorente and see Wilfried Bony back in a Swans shirt before the window closes.
