Batshuayi has been used sparingly by manager Conte since the Belgium international completed a £34m move to Chelsea from Ligue 1 side Lille in the summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old is still waiting to make his first Premier League star after coming off the bench 12 times in the English top flight.
Llorente, meanwhile, has scored five times in 11 games in the Premier League after his move to Swansea from Sevilla in the summer.
