Spurs to beat Chelsea to striker signing?

Tottenham Hotspur have had an offer for Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente accepted.

The bid is thought to be worth in the region of £15m, and the player is now able to discuss personal terms and have a medical ahead of tonight’s 11pm deadline.

The former Spain international has also been linked to Premier League champions Chelsea, where he would become a backup striker to their big money summer signing, Alvaro Morata.

Llorente worked under Chelsea boss Antonio Conte during their respective time at Italian club Juventus. Conte tried to prise Llorente out of Swansea back in January, but the Swans were unwilling to sell during their relegation scrap. However, they are now willing to do business with Wilfried Bony linked with a return to the Liberty Stadium.

Llorente is being eyed up by Spurs as a potential replacement for Vincent Janssen. The Daily Mail are reporting that Spurs have received, and accepted a £23m bid from West Brom for the Dutch International striker.
