Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly preparing to battle Chelsea for the signature of Swansea City striker Fernando Llorente during the January transfer window.

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly keen to enter the race to sign in-demand Swansea City forward Fernando Llorente.

The Spanish frontman is said to have garnered interest from Chelsea boss Antonio Conte in recent weeks, who is thought to be seeking a potential backup option for key man Diego Costa.

French news outlet L'Equipe, however, has suggested that the Blues could now face stiff competition from PSG for Llorente, as the Ligue 1 champions aim to provide support to Edinson Cavani.

Unai Emery's PSG side, who currently sit in third place in the Ligue 1 table, recently announced the signing of Germany playmaker Julian Draxler.
