Chelsea fans not impressed with Llorente link after ‘losing’ Lukaku

Chelsea supporters have had a frustrating summer so far given that they have had to watch their rivals bring in new players while activity at Stamford Bridge remains quiet.

The Premier League champions are constantly linked to big-name players in the gossip pages, but none have come through the door as yet.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku was regularly touted as a possible target for the Blues, but it is believed that the Belgian will swerve his former club to join Manchester United.

The Guardian reports that the 24-year-old was booked in for a medical on Thursday ahead of a £75m switch to Old Trafford.

With Lukaku seemingly no longer an option, speculation has been rife about who Chelsea will target.

According to Transfermarketweb, a deal to sign Swansea City forward Fernando Llorente is close to completion.

The Spaniard, who has previously played for Athletic Bilbao, has worked with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte before when the pair were at Juventus.

Last season, Llorente scored 15 goals and produced one assist in 33 Premier League appearances.

A number of Chelsea fans are not happy with the club’s reported pursuit of the Spaniard, who may come in as Diego Costa’s replacement amid rumours that the forward will leave this summer.
