Chelsea have made no contact for Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente, contrary of reports in the media linking him with a move to the Blues this week.

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague claims that there’s been no contact between the two Premier League clubs for the Spaniard’s services at Stamford Bridge.
Llorente has impressed since his £5 million summer move from Sevilla, netting six goals in 13 starts in South Wales.
Scoring six goals, despite pretty awful service from his Swansea teammates at times this season is a decent feat, and he supposedly caught the interest of Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
Llorente worked with Conte during his successful spell at Juventus, where they both won several Serie A titles and reached the 2015 Champions League final, where the 31-year-old forward came on as a substitute.
However, now, it seems as if the Swans will be keeping onto their much valued striker – whose goals are as vital as they can be with the club in the relegation battle.
