A transfer report by Daily Express claims Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is reportedly eager to beat Manchester United to the signing of Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio.
Conte managed Marchisio during his time at Juventus during which they won three Serie A titles in three seasons.
Daily Express claim Manchester United are also interested in the 31-year-old but Conte is hoping his relationship with Marchisio will help bring the 31-year-old to Chelsea.
Marchisio’s Juventus contract expires in 2020 and the report claims he could be tempted by a new adventure.
Marchisio is a fine player but Chelsea fans will be hoping Conte brings a young and energetic midfielder who can play for Chelsea for many years.
