According to claims from Italian publication La Gazzetta Dello Sport, former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte hopes to ruin Chelsea’s transfer plans by making moves for key transfer targets Timo Werner and Dries Mertens.
With Lautaro Martinez’s Inter Milan future in doubt, Inter boss Conte is reportedly keen on signing attacking reinforcements.
Inter Milan are reportedly resigned to losing Martinez with Barcelona and Chelsea interested in the 22 year old Argentine striker.
Mertens’ Napoli contract expires at the end of the season and the Belgian is yet to put pen to paper on fresh terms to extend his association with the Partenopei.
Timo Werner, who is also a transfer target for Chelsea, has a release clause of £52 million that can only be exercised before the summer transfer window.
