Conte desperate to land 26-year-old as Chelsea reportedly refuse to give up hope of doing deal

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to land a few signings before the summer is out…

Though a few big names have moved to Stamford Bridge, a number of key departures have left Chelsea very short on squad depth –  with the flanks a particular area of concern for the Blues.

At present, Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses are Chelsea’s only recognised wing-backs, and this is something that Antonio Conte needs to resolve.

It appears as though he wants to do exactly that, with Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that Chelsea are refusing to take no for an answer with regards to their interest in Alex Sandro. Despite being told no, Chelsea are reportedly still keen on the defender – with Conte viewing him as a priority target.

Chelsea haven’t had much luck in trying to convince a number of their targets to move, with Alex Sandro’s future still looking set to be in Turin.

The Blues, though, clearly want to land him – and so this move could yet see developments.

Landlord’s Verdict

If Chelsea want to improve their defence, there is simply nobody better than Alex Sandro. The Brazilain is argueably the best left-back in the world.

These players come at a premium, of course, but this appears to be more of a case of Juventus simply refusing to sell at any price – so it might be time for Chelsea to move on.

Conte, though, clearly wants him – and so Chelsea are refusing to let go.
