Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is reportedly interested in Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard who has just one year left in his Manchester United contract.

According to The Sun, Conte feels the 24-year-old winger is a perfect fit for his 3-4-3 system at Chelsea and is ready to bid for the winger if he doesn’t renew his Manchester United contract.

Conte’s 3-4-3 system at Chelsea could see Lingard play as a wing-back or out wide in the front three. Lingard has largely played as a right winger under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this season.

Arsenal are also reportedly interested in Lingard and will compete for the winger with Chelsea this summer.

Do you really think Lingard is the type of player Conte will want at Chelsea? He definitely has some attributes that Conte will like such as workrate and pace but I really don’t see Lingard as an upgrade to what we already have at Chelsea.
