RUMOURS: Batshuayi brother key to Chelsea's Llorente deal

It was thought the Belgium international would leave for the Liberty Stadium as the Spaniard’s replacement, though a deal has now reportedly been agreed for his brother

Chelsea are set to sign Swansea forward Fernando Llorente on loan for the rest of the season, with the Swans picking up Michy Batshuayi’s brother as a replacement, reports the Daily Star.

Having worked with the Spaniard at Juventus, Blues boss Antonio Conte has earmarked Llorente as an alternative to Diego Costa to lead his attacking unit.

And though Chelsea spent £33 million on Belgium international Batshuayi in the summer, he is yet to start a Premier League game and is not fancied by his boss.

It was thought Batshuayi would join Swansea in return for Llorente, however it has emerged that Aaron Leya Iseka – his brother – will arrive at the Liberty Stadium instead.

The 19-year-old is currently on the books of Anderlecht, having spent time on loan at Marseille this season, but will reportedly spend the remainder of the campaign under the tutelage of Paul Clement.
