In the end, the Premier League champions got the deal over the line to make Danny Drinkwater a Chelsea player. Chelsea have been interested in landing Llorente since January, with boss Antonio Conte keen to work with him again after being with him at Juventus.
It is said that 24-time Spain global Llorente will put pen to paper on a two-year deal with Mauricio Pochettino's side, as well as the option of a third year.
In any case, deadline day is now over, the transfer window has slammed shut.
Ex-Swansea striker Fernando Llorente has revealed his motivations for leaving the Liberty Stadium this summer, having made the move to Spurs for an undisclosed fee. In addition to this quintet, the integration of defender Andreas Christensen from Chelsea's academy/loan system into the first team setup has the feel of a new signing.

Moving fast forward to present day, the bitter feud between the stars shows no signs of stopping. In light of this, it also seems like one of her recent enemies was once her "biggest fan".
However, with Tottenham now involved, the race for Llorente will go down to the wire on the transfer deadline day.
Should Llorente move to Tottenham it would potentially open the door for striker Vincent Janssen to leave on loan.
Llorente was key to Swansea's survival last season, scoring 15 goals for a struggling side that may well have been doomed without him.
