Swansea agree deal for Sevilla striker

Swansea City have agreed a deal with Sevilla over the signing of striker Fernando Llorente.

The former Athletic Bilbao and Juventus striker will head to South Wales to thrash out personal terms and complete a medical before completing a move to the Liberty Stadium.

Following the departures of Alberto Paloschi and Bafetimbi Gomis, Swansea only have André Ayew as a senior striker at the club, and even he has been targeted for a summer move by West Ham United.

It is believed that the 31-year old will sign a two-year contract at the club as he moves to the Premier League for the first time in his career.

Llorente was well down the pecking order at Europa League champions Sevilla, who have just sold Kevin Gameiro to Atletico Madrid in a deal which saw fellow striker Luciano Vietto join the club on loan.
