Chelsea have started the Champions League campaign in gallant fashion against Qarabag, beating them by 6-0 in order to clinch their first victory of the season in their very first match in Europe. However, they will like to keep their feet grounded and prepare for the next match as the season progresses on both European as well as domestic fronts.
The reigning Premier League champions have spent well in the summer transfer market and brought in a number of top class players into their side so as to make it an invincible one for the new season. Their investment has already started showing colours, as they have clinched three victories out of the first four matches in the Premier League and have shown a dominant display on the field so far.
They seem to have carried that form in the Champions League as well and have embarked on a journey, which, as their fans hope, might lead them to come out as the eventual winners of the competition this term.
However, the man in charge at Stamford Bridge, Antonio Conte has been eyeing more reinforcements to be brought into the side to make his team even stronger for the rest of the season and there is a chance that the wily Italian might go for his compatriot midfielder Marco Verratti, who is currently plying his trade at the Parc des Princes.
The 24-year-old has been one of the best midfielders in the present scenario and has displayed great composure in the last few seasons in his style of play for his side Paris Saint Germain. He headed to the French club in the year 2012 and has been a part of their side since, making his way into the first team and establishing himself as a first choice enforcer.
Known for his brilliant passing and tackling, paired with his ability to keep hold of the ball for a significant amount of time in the middle of the pitch, the Italian midfielder is highly rated and has been tracked by a number of big name clubs in the form of Barcelona and Manchester United, who are vying with the West Londoners in order to get the player to sign for them and strengthen their side with his enigmatic display of swift footwork and passing game.
However, there seems to be no possibility of any departure from the current Paris Saint Germain side in the summer transfer window, making it difficult for the Blues to get a hand on their desired candidate for the rest of the season. But can Conte land him?
