Ex-Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley believes signing Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente could bolster Chelsea for the title run-in.

“This has gathered some legs over the last 24 hours,” Burley told ESPN. “Costa has been great but we know that can boil over at any second and the red mist comes down. Conte has talked about Batshuayi being young and inexperienced and not quite ready.

“I think a guy, who funnily enough hasn’t always played at Swansea, but he’s got experience, he’s a good target man and in a better team, you would see a better Fernando Llorente.

“I think as a squad player, this is definitely something that can happen and bolster Chelsea for the title run-in.

“And he wouldn’t be particularly expensive either, you’re not going to shell out millions and millions to get him and he’s going to give you someone who can come on and change the dynamic.”
