Conte meets with top class Terry replacement, aiming to persuade him to join Chelsea


The excitement from the Chelsea fans who are propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern tonight is palpable as attentions turn from their nightmare campaign this time round into dreams of next year.

With Antonio Conte set to arrive at Stamford Bridge, the proverbial transfer rumour mill has been sent into overdrive in recent months, possessing quite the Italian flavour.

The Italian coach, as reported by the Daily Mail, is reported to be aiming to convince Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci to join him upon his arrival in West London.

As John Terry prepares to depart the Blues, they will no doubt be in the market for a big name replacement to marshal their backline next term.

Bonucci is widely regarded to be one of the best defenders in Europe and has worked under Conte to great success at both club and country.

The 29-year old is also said to have refused to rule a move to England, amid strong links with Chelsea.

Would Bonucci be a suitable replacement for John Terry at Chelsea?
