Swansea have agreed a deal with Sevilla for experienced striker Fernando Llorente.

The Swans have been looking for a forward following a string of summer departures and are now poised to land the 31-year-old Spanish international, who is due to undergo a medical on Friday, ahead of signing a two-year deal.

A three-time Serie A winner during a stint with Juventus, Llorente joined the Italian side after making over 250 appearances for Athletic Bilbao during a long spell with the Basque club, and then moved on to Sevilla last year.

He has 24 Spain caps and was a member of the squad who won the 2010 World Cup and the 2012 European Championship.

Llorente helped Sevilla to Europa League glory last term, but largely acted as Kevin Gameiro's understudy, starting 14 times and scoring on four occasions.

And Sevilla sporting director Monchi said earlier this week that a deal with Swansea for Llorente was likely to be agreed "in the coming days".

Portugal's Euro 2016 hero Eder, Alberto Paloschi and Bafetimbi Gomis have all left Swansea this summer, leaving the Premier League side in need of some support for Andre Ayew.
