French champions, Paris Saint-Germain have joined the race to sign Fernando Llorente from Swansea.

As reported by French outlet, L’Equipe, cited by Sport Witness, the Spaniard is a target for the European giants, who have struggled to dominate the Ligue 1 this season.

The French club are in the market for an experienced striker to provide cover for Edinson Cavani, who is finally having the leading role in Paris following the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Llorente is a target for Premier League leaders Chelsea who are also seeking a more experienced back up striker to Diego Costa.

Despite scoring four goals in all competitions, Michy Batshuayi has been deemed too raw for head coach, Antonio Conte.

Batshuayi is thought to prefer a move to West Ham on loan after reports stated that he could move to Wales temporarily as a part of the deal.

It is unclear what the arrival of Paul Clement from Bayern Munich will have on any transfer business in January. The new head coach will be keen to see what he has available to him before sanctioning any deals.
