Fernando Llorente has officially signed for Chelsea from Swansea city, as per eplguide.
The 31 year old Spaniard spent 2 years under Antonio Conte at Juventus where they had a great working relationship, with Liorente playing as a back up striker to Alvaro Morata.
The former Atletic Bilbao striker managed to net 6 goals in 12 matches for Swansea and as a back up signing for Chelsea with a coach he understands the veterant may well be motivated to surpass his immediate records.
Also with the rumor of a Diego Costa and Conte training ground bust-up and perhaps the potential exit of the former from Chelsea, this signing would make some temporary sense before an adequate replacement is made, if Costa leaves as currently rumored
Chelsea sit top of the EPL table with 5 points clear of second placed Liverpool. A careful and intelligent management of its crisis would mean maintaining focus and could see them in same top spot come May.
