This whole thing proves yet again that Michy wasn't a Conte signing. 

Of course it wasn't. Look at the time when he was bought when Conte was with the Italian team. 

Rudgier was another one targeted by the club. 

But after that everything has gone through Conte, and I doubt from now on anyone will interfere. They seen what great job he is doing, so it will targets he ask for. Weather is option A, or option C it will be him.

Reminds me of the Demba Ba deal

Ba was inform when we bought him and one of best natural scorers. Llorente is not on level for at least 3 years. 

But I can see this deal makes sense only if we get Llorente on loan, because Conte clearly doesnt count on Bats.

Conte spent 23m on Alonso and now wants to sign struggling strikers from the bottom placed club.

Honestly, he should have no say on transfers moving forward in opinion.

Yeah because having 4 golden ball winners in the squad is always a winner team - see that horrible Real Madrid 12-13 years ago.

 With Alonso we won 13 games straight and hardly ever conceded goals. Llorente would be a backup striker - why not? He scored some goals at Swansea, he is a good player and very tall.  By the way, Conte was the one who called Kanté and convinced him to join Chelsea.

Who the hell said anything about having a team full of ballon d'or winners?

Do you really think the only two options are world class players or the Alonso's of this world and with absolutely nothing in between?

Antonio Conte is keen on signing Swansea striker Fernando Llorente - and Blues striker Michy Batshuayi could be going the other way, according to Sky sources.

In the same way that Torres was terrible here, yet perfectly adequate and 'good' for Atletico upon his return, plenty of 'past it' strikers (I'm looking at Falcao) can flourish once they're with different players in a different system. Llorente would bring something new to this team, which Bats does not. With or without Bats, we have all the same qualities, he doesn't bring something new to the table, but Llorente brings a controlled, aerial presence which Costa does not, which alone gets you 5 or so headed goals a season; and in a season where we rarely lose by over 1 goal, that's the difference we can benefit from.

Also, since his style is similar enough to Costa's, the players around him wouldn't need to change their way of playing once he comes on. Whereas when Costa goes off at the moment, suddenly we decide our replacement striker isn't worthy enough of having the ball fed to him, and thus it goes to either Pedro or Hazard as they become the main attacking threat. 

For 6 months of football we could do worse than use a player that Conte's already familiar with.

He's averaged 1 goal every 2.5 games in both the Premier League and Serie A. This mostly being a sub. Wanting anything more from a sub is spoiled.

Also, this loan-swap would ensure Bats plays pretty much every game until the end of the season. That is what we want. We need to see if he can kick it in the Premier League for 6 months straight. But, we aren't in a position to experiment with 1 player and his personal potential. It's a move which makes more than good sense.

Then again

A player that cost £30m

Needing a loan to Swansea to prove he's good enough

Is already pretty much a lost cause. I hope we make our money back, somehow.
