Conte keen on familiar 22-year-old in potential £38m summer deal

There’s little that can bring the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern off of cloud 9 right now, with the Blues simply delighted about life under Antonio Conte. 

The Italian has had a stunning impact in west London despite a slight wobble a few months back and the notion of having him at the helm for a while is a reassuring one for the Stamford Bridge faithful.

So, the drinkers propping up the bar have been happy to read reports from Calcio Mercato suggesting the 47-year-old could be about to further stamp his authority on the squad.

According to their report, Conte is keen on Fiorentina forward Federico Bernardeschi as he looks to bolster his frontline in SW6.

The 22-year-old has been hugely impressive for La Viola in recent months and was even called up to the Italian national side while the current Chelsea coach was in charge.

Despite proving hugely impressive in Serie A, the Tuscan outfit are understood to be willing to cash in on him, with the Blues reportedly lining up a €45m bid.

That figure roughly equates to around £38m and while Conte is said to have wanted him in January, the report states a move next summer is now more likely.
