Conte plotting £57m double-swoop to sign Euro 2016 aces for Chelsea

Conte 2Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are getting excited this morning after hearing their club is chasing two exciting recruits.

The Sun says new boss Antonio Conte is ready to raid the Serie A to sign two of his international compatriots, as he looks to bring in Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus and Antonio Candreva.

Italian duo Bonucci and Candreva are both currently on duty with the soon to be Chelsea boss at the European Championships, where the 2006 World Cup champions have got off to a blistering start, and Conte is keen to work with the pair again.

Bonucci would bolster the Blues’ struggling defensive line, whilst Candreva would support a Chelsea attack that was shaky last season- and Conte is prepared to pay a combined sum of £57m for the international pairing.

29-year-old Bonucci is seen to be the prime target for Conte, who’s had his eyes on a wealth of Serie A talent, and our landlord reckons that will be the first deal to go through.

Will this double signing put Chelsea back on course for Champions League football? Let us know in the comments below!
