Fernando Llorente has explained how Swansea blocked his move to Chelsea during the January window, but insists he is ready to help his side fight relegation.
"I already know Conte from Juventus," Llorente told Spanish publication Marca.
"But it's difficult in the winter when there's a way out from a side you're playing for and it's normal that they didn't go ahead with the deal.
"I'm very focused on the team and am looking forward to helping save us from relegation."
