Chelsea are ready to splash money for Italian defender Alessio Romagnoli. Conte is reportedly ready to offer £50m in the next transfer window to land the AC Milan defender.
The 21-year old had signed last year from Sampdoria for £17m. The defender was recently handed his debut in a 1-1 draw against Spain by Italy boss Giampiero Ventura in the absence of Leonardo Bonucci and was pretty impressive.
Conte didn’t include him in the EURO 2016 squad but now wants him as he is looking forward to reshuffling his back line. Alongside the 21-year old, Conte is also preparing a world record bid for Leonardo Bonucci.
Conte had a £35m bid rejected for the youngster earlier but he is now very desperate to have the defender at Stamford Bridge. The defender is an essential part of Vincenzo Montella’s back four and Milan are keen to keep him at The San Siro.
