According to a report by Daily Express, West Ham star Michail Antonio is a summer transfer target for Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and Manchester Boss Jose Mourinho.

Antonio has been in superb form this season for London club West Ham and the 26-year-old is West Ham’s highest goal scorer with 8 goals in the Premier League.

Conte has been impressed with the performances of Antonio for West Ham and Conte is apparently eyeing him for a wing-back role in Chelsea’s 3-4-3.

Everton is also reportedly interested in Antonio.

However, West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is hopeful Antonio would commit his future to West Ham by signing a new five-and-a-half-year contract worth £70,000 a week.

“He is a player who came last season to us and he has improved a lot,” Bilic said.

“He came for the future but is now one of the most important players for us.

“When a player is like that and of a good age as well, he attracts interest from other clubs.

“I don’t know all the details but I hope a new deal is close, even done.”
