Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has been linked with a transfer to Russian club Zenit St Petersburg this January but Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admits he doesn’t know if something will happen with him.

“He’s in the squad,” said Conte. “There are four days (until the transfer window closes) and there is a lot of speculation. I don’t know if something will happen with him.

“This season Ivanovic has played. He started different games. When we switched to three at the back, it changed and for sure I have to make a decision, I can only pick 11 players.

“Until now he’s always been involved in our squad. In this type of situation, it’s better to talk with the player, to know if there is a different idea or a different vision for the future.”
