Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is keen to snap up Fernando Llorente from Swansea City in a move which could open the door for Michy Batshuayi to join either Crystal Palace or West Ham on loan.
Conte worked with Llorente at Juventus and is hunting a deputy for Diego Costa up front, which could allow the Blues to loan out Batshuayi in order that he can secure regular first team football.
According to Sky Italia, Conte is keen on taking Llorente to Stamford Bridge and the Spanish striker could leave Swansea to answer his old manager's call.
Llorente would land at the Blues as backup to Costa.
Both Crystal Palace and West Ham are chasing Batshuayi, who has been forced to play second fiddle to Costa since he arrived at Chelsea in the summer from Marseille.
And if Conte can land a replacement in the form of Llorente, Batshuayi could join either the Eagles or the Hammers on a loan deal which would allow him to play week in, week out.
So far this season Batshuayi has managed only 81 minutes of Premier League football under Conte at Chelsea, with the Italian regularly preferring other options.
Llorente meanwhile has made 18 appearances across all competitions for Swansea this season, scoring six goals.
