Fernando Llorente's future is at Swansea: Paul Clement

Fernando Llorente's future is at Swansea: Paul Clement

The Blues' advances were rebuffed, and Swansea have placed a price tag of around £30m on their prized forward in order to ward off any further interest from Chelsea, according to the Express.

"We want to do better than we did last season".

"He [Llorente] has got a year to go on his deal and we'd like him to stay for this year and longer", The Swans boss told reporters ahead of their trip to Southampton this weekend, via the Daily Mail.

Clement added: 'I'm confident [he will stay] because of the conversations I've had with Fernando.

However, Koeman denies that negotiations have broken down, and insists that Everton still have a good chance of landing the 28-year-old this summer.

Clement steered Swansea away from relegation last season after arriving in January and believes the club are in a stronger position heading into his first full campaign in charge.

Everton have yet to meet Swansea's £50million valuation of the Icelandic playmaker, who will not be part of Clement's squad for the Premier League opener at Southampton on Saturday.

The island was first populated about 4,000 years ago by the ancestors of the Chamorros , still the island's largest ethnic group. The forum members also urged North Korea to comply with obligations stated in the United Nations Security Council resolutions.

Van Dijk's future is very much up in the air and as a result he hasn't featured once in pre-season, meaning the unorthodox pairing of Maya Yoshida and Jack Stephens will likely start at the back.

"We have a number of weeks to go and I don't anticipate it going to the end of the window", Clement said of the Sigurdsson situation. But Clement moved to calm fears over the Swans' transfer dealings and hinted that deals are already in the offing.

"A lot of situations like this take place and are happening at other clubs".

"Of course everybody would like news on that, it is better for us and them, but it is always a game between the buying and selling club and it is close, let's hope we get an agreement soon". We have balanced things up with outs and ins.

"One of the reasons I don't want to talk about other names is because unless something is done with Gylfi's situation there is no point saying anything".

For now, the Ivorian continues to train with City but it appears to be only a matter of time before he is on his way, with Swansea in pole position to re-sign a player who was a big fan favourite during his previous stint at the Welsh club.
